Dud 1: Luke Schoonmaker
On the other side of the spectrum, fellow tight end Luke Schoonmaker was a complete no-show on Sunday.
The rookie tight end figured to play a bigger roll with backup Peyton Hendershot out for the contest due to a injury. Instead, Schoonmaker remained an afterthought in this offense, recording a goose egg in the box score despite seeing three targets.
Schoonmaker had an opportunity to turn heads in the second quarter. Prescott saw the TE in traffic and gave him a chance to make a play, but he unfortunately couldn't come up with it. While it was a difficult catch, it's the type of highlight-reel moment that could've helped him start to make headway in the tight end room.
Instead, Schoonmaker was clearly outshined by Ferguson's career day, putting him even further behind the former Badger standout. Even fourth-stringer Luke McKeon, who got the nod with Hendershot injured, arguably had a better day. He hustled all the way down the field to recover a fumble late in the fourth quarter, showing some serious championship-level effort.
It seems we'll have to keep waiting for Schoonmaker to show why he was a second-round pick.
