04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Dolphins' picks: Round 3/78 - Michael Egnew, TE, 6-5, 252, Missouri...He's been a productive seam threat tight end during his career at Missouri, catching 147 passes for 1,332 yards and scoring eight touchdowns, most of which came in his two seasons as a starter. But fellow Tigers tight ends like Martin Rucker and Chase Coffman have fallen short of matching their college productivity. - The Sports Xchange

04/27/2012 - TE Michael Egnew, Missouri -- A tall, wiry target who was the most productive tight end in the class but played more of a wide receiver role in the Missouri spread offense. He's in the mold of Jermichael Finley, a key cog in the offense from which head coach Joe Philbin is establishing the new scheme in Miami.

03/04/2012 - Missouri is a good location to kick off the busy slate of Pro Day workouts, with an easy trip for many of the scouts who wrapped up the Scouting Combine on Tuesday. Representatives from more than two dozen teams showed up to watch 11 players work out Thursday. St. Louis, Minnesota, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Carolina, Tennessee, San Diego, Philadelphia, New England and Tampa Bay all had scouts at the work out, according to the Columbia Tribune. The Tigers had four players invited to the Combine, and they all stood on their workout numbers from last week: tight end Michael Egnew, defensive lineman Dominique Hamilton, wide receiver Jerrell Jackson and defensive lineman Jacquies Smith. Egnew, who is NFLDraftScout.com's No. 5-ranked tight end - albeit in a week position group this year - weighed in at 251 pounds, a pound lighter than at the Combine. He posted a 37 1/2-inch vertical and an 11-foot, 3-inch broad jump, improving on the 36 and 10-11 he managed in Indianapolis last week. In fact, his broad jump broke his own school record and would have been the best at the Combine, which was an 11-1 by Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill and Central Florida cornerback Josh Robinson. - NFLDraftScout.com

12/10/2011 - 2011 ALL-BIG 12 FOOTBALL FIRST TEAM (COACHES): TE Michael Egnew, Missouri, Sr., has been selected All-Big 12 Conference First Team for the 2011 college football season as voted on by the league's 10 head coaches, who are not permitted to vote for their own players. Egnew, a 2010 First Team All-American, finished the regular season with 47 catches for 484 yards and three touchdowns. - Missouri football

09/14/2011 - WEEK 2 REWIND: NFL scouts saw the best and the worst from Missouri tight end Michael Egnew on Friday night in the Tigers' overtime loss to Arizona State. On the positive side, the 6-5, 245-pound Mackey Award candidate made the biggest catch of the game for the Tigers, extending to snatch a 3-yard touchdown pass from quarterback James Franklin to tie the score at 30 with 2:50 left in regulation. It was clear that the Sun Devils recognized Egnew's vital role in Missouri's offense. They mixed coverages on him, limiting the 2010 All-American to only three catches on the evening for a grand total of 27 yards. To put that in perspective, Egnew led the nation's tight ends with 90 catches for 762 yards and five touchdowns last year. Egnew's impressive size, athleticism and production led to many rating Egnew as a potential top 50 prospect for the 2012 draft. Like former Mizzou tight ends Martin Rucker and Chase Coffman, however, Egnew is a receiver specialist who is rarely asked to block. Egnew's lack of strength and overall physicality, in fact, was evident throughout the evening as a downfield blocker and when fighting through coverage. For teams looking for a matchup nightmare, Egnew makes some sense. For teams operating out of a traditional offense, however, Egnew may struggle to generate anything other than late-round interest. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

08/24/2011 - Missouri placed seven members of its 2011 team on preseason watch lists. The seven players are: Junior LB Zaviar Gooden (Bednarik, Butkus, Nagurski) junior WR T.J. Moe (Biletnikoff), senior TE Michael Egnew (Mackey, Walter Camp), senior K Grant Ressel (Lou Groza), senior DE Brad Madison (Lombardi, Nagurski), senior DE Jacquies Smith (Lombardi) and senior OT Dan Hoch (Outland). The last time Missouri had seven players placed on preseason watch lists was 2007. That year, the Tigers went 12-2. The preseason accolades also followed Missouri into conference-centric honors. Three Missouri players were voted by the media to the first-team All-Big 12 squad: TE Michael Egnew, DE Brad Madison and K Grant Ressel. The media also picked Missouri to finish fourth in the Big 12 this season, ahead of Texas but behind Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Oklahoma State. - The Sports Xchange
