Video: Austin Seferian-Jenkins on replacing Kasen Williams

Junior tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins talked about injured receiver Kasen Williams, who is out for the season after suffering a leg and foot injury last Saturday against California.

“He brought everything,” Seferian-Jenkins said. “He brought energy. He brought physical play. Catching. Blocking. He’s an all-around receiver. We’re going to miss him, but that doesn’t mean we’re not going to have opportunities for people to step up and show what they can do.”

Considering his size (6-6 and 276), talent and experience, Seferian-Jenkins, a preseason all-American, is an obvious candidate to fill Williams’ role in the passing game.

Despite the preseason accolades, Seferian-Jenkins (20 catches and 244 yards) is on pace to fall far short of last season’s receiving totals (69 and 850).

“I’m happy with whatever I’ve got,” he said. “The coaches call great plays and I’m just thankful I get the opportunities I have and I try to do the best I can with my opportunities. Personally I think I’ve gotten a lot better blocking. I think I’ve definitely taken it to the next level blocking. I’ve had a few holding penalties this year, but besides that I think I’ve taken an evolution in my game to become an all-around player.”
