    If he trades back - and I kinda hope he does - then maybe he's targeting a couple of guys: one that he feels will still be available even after a trade-down or two; and another that he knows won't be available when #87 arrives and he needs to somehow fill the gap between those picks...

    Haven’t seen Dalton Keene talked about much here. He had a pretty good combine, so I started to dive in to his tape a bit. His play style reminds me of former Dolphins / Bills TE Charles Clay. And if I remember correctly, BB also heaped praise on Clay. Could be a name to note in later rounds.

    I would love Dalton Keene with one of our 6ths as an awesome Part 2 of a double-dip at TE with Kmet, Trautman or Harrison Bryant on Day 2...

    Charles Clay is still a UFA, by the way...just sayin'...He, Keene & Kmet/Trautman/Bryant wouldn't be a bad way to begin the overhaul at that position...

    I ass-ume that the answer is Zero, or close to it...But there's a first time for everything...who would've thought that Bill would choose a WR with a 1st-round pick?

    I just want the Pats to pick TWO pass catching TEs. One early (no later than the 3rd round) and one late. I’d be ridiculously happy if they pick two within the first four rounds.

    My favorite TE is Albert Okwuebunam, I know he’s not the highest rated, but I’ve been a fan of his for 2 years now. I think he’s exactly what the Pats need at TE. Big, fast, explosive, good hands. If we can get Albert O in the 3rd round (though I think he goes higher) and maybe someone like Colby Parkinson later on (6’7” red zone mismatch), I’d be thrilled. Would totally change our offense around.

    I like Devin Asiasi a lot in the 4/5th round. Would prefer him to Bryant or Albert O in the 3rd.

    To Hunter Bryant, yes...to Harrison Bryant, no...I prefer Asiasi as a Part 2 of a TE double-dip, not as a Part 1...

    I don't want to take two TEs in a weak draft. I'd rather punt on the position than reach for one.

    Kmet and Trutman are mid 3rd rounders to me. Everyone else is a day 3 pick.

    We look for the best values at TE. And it seems that we well placed to get value at TE in our picks in the 3rd and 4th. The TE situation is different than last year, with no one at the top.

    However, it may be a repeat of 2020 if none of the TE's are on Belichick's draft board, as was apparently the case last year.

    Most of us were surprised early when we passed on Smith to draft Williams and shocked when we passed on Knox to draft Harris. Obviously, we should never be surprised when Belichcik picks a DB in the 2nd round.

    To be clear, this is NOT hindsight. Most of us said this before, during and after last year's draft, and then again during the pre-season, the season and after the season.

    So, we should be looking at Kmet and Truman in the 3rd, where we have three picks?

    Does Belichick draft a 6'3" TE who has character questions in the later rounds ? I doubt it. Talented, yes, but he's been suspended and has had personal issues. Funny thing is, despite being 6'3", he's known as a very good blocker.

    I'm starting to warm up to Cole Kmet. He may not be the most explosive TE, but he brings a lot to a team, Notre Dame actually had him split out wide sometimes, he has decent enough speed to be a good receiving TE at 6'6" 260.

    Kmet nor Trautman may not be available in round 3, may have to trade up to get either.

    Yeah, I think my point was that Kmet and Trautman are very likely to be gone by 87 ( as high as the 2nd round). I don't want to trade up for them.

    Kmet looks the part but he slightly underwhelms on tape personally give his reputation. He's solid but spending a top 50 pick to get him stings when you could get a difference making WR, for example, at that point. In terms of value, I just think it's worth picking one of the pass catching TEs later on in the draft (Bryce Hopkins, Devin Asiasi, Hunter Bryant etc) and trying to cobble together the blocking role.

    Not great but not bad for TE imo. I'd say B - / C?
