NFL Tight End for 12 years and ESPN2 College Football Analyst
Anthony Becht
Anthony Becht is a former 12yr NFL Tight End selected in the first round of the 2000 NFL Draft by the New York Jets. He played five seasons with the Jets, starting every game. Over the next seven seasons he played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2005-07), St. Louis Rams (2008), Arizona Cardinals (2009-10) and Kansas City Chiefs (2011). From 2000 to 2010, he played in 152 consecutive games, which at the time was third amongst all NFL offensive players - behind Brett Favre and Peyton Manning.

After retiring in 2012 he joined ESPN for the 2013 season as a college football analyst. Currently, he teamed up with play-by-play commentator Beth Mowins on ESPN2 college football coverage. Additionally, Becht is currently the co-host of the Pre and Postgame Show on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers radio network and the co-host of the "Football Fan Shop" on HSN.

In 2006 Anthony started the "Anthony Becht Football Camp". He's spread his football and life's knowledge to thousands of youth around the country. The Anthony Becht Football Camp offers kids the chance to enhance their individual skills in a team atmosphere. They learn fundamentals of leadership, sportsmanship and academics all while having fun with Anthony and other NFL players.
