Central Michigan tight end Tony Poljan was at top rated quarterback in high school. He was a strong armed pro style quarterback with tons of yards at Lansing Catholic. He tossed 390 completions for 6,090 yards, adding 58 touchdowns to his receivers. The crazy thing is he could run too, which is rare for 6’7 quarterbacks.
He rushed for 3,118 yards on 500 carries and scored 58 touchdowns in his career as a quarterback. And as a result, Central Michigan came calling and Poljan made his decision.
In 2017, Poljan appeared in every game and finished the year 10/17 passing for 61 yards and rushed for 110 yards on the ground. He hauled in 5 receptions for 97 yards, as well.
In 2018, Tony began to start for the Chips. He started five games and finished the year splitting between the quarterback and tight end position. He rushed for 123 yards scoring one touchdown and caught 7 passes for 125 yards scoring two touchdowns.
Poljan would make ALL-Mac Second Team and was named Captain of the team. He started all 12 games and finished the year with 33 receptions for 496 yards and four touchdowns. Poljan worked primarily as a tight end in 2019. I enjoy his film, because he looks natural in his transition.
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:
Poljan ranked second among MAC tight ends in receptions (30), receiving yards (458) and touchdowns (4). The kid is huge, and NFL teams love big targets in the red zone. With his ability to break tackles and gaining positive YAC, I think teams will quickly fall in love with Poljan. He reminds me of Scott Chandler the former Bills tight end. He is a huge target who is tough as nails. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds Owner
