Stacy Revere

Malcolm Johnson became the fourth Bulldog in the last two days to make a watch list as the tight end found his name on the Mackey Award Watch List Tuesday.

The John Mackey Award announced its preseason watch list Tuesday, and Mississippi State's Malcolm Johnson found his name among others under early consideration for the award, given to the most outstanding collegiate tight end.

The award, presented since 2000, honors the play of John Mackey, a Hall of Fame NFL tight end. Notable winners of the award include Heath Miller (2004), Kellen Winslow II (2003),  and Dallas Clark (2002).

The preseason list contains 38 names.  Other SEC players on the list include: Rory Anderson (South Carolina), Evan Engram (Ole Miss), Hunter Henry (Arkansas), O.J. Howard (Alabama), Jay Rome (Georgia), C.J. Uzomah (Auburn).

The Midseason Watch List will be announced on October 13.  Semifinalists for the award will be announced on November 17 with the finalists being announced a week later on November 24. The winner will be announced on December 10.
