    I say lets roll the dice and hope there isn't an early run on TE in round 2.

    Is to me. I think hes been short changed quite a bit. With more polish, he would've been a surefire 1st. Hes not going to be that explosive receiver like Kittle or Kelce. Hes got a better physical profile than Zach Ertz coming out. Bigger, stronger, faster, more explosive and over a year younger. Hes more in the reliable receiver mold, although even that seems to underscore his ability imo. Hes not a guy that you have to hit in the numbers and he'll catch it. He can adjust to poor throws, go up and get the ball, and can get his feet in bounds on the sideline.

    I think the reason he isn't viewed higher is that he needs work, but when people hear project or upside, they think freak athlete or explosive one. Thats not him. So they see a project but don't see that freakish quality, so it tempers enthusiasm about him. Head and shoulders above the class to me, and good value at 37. Hes not going to come in and dominate but hes a player that in a year or two will be a big boost to the offense as a receiver and blocker.

    I expect BB to make one trade too many and screw up his chances to get a viable tight end.

    Trades were only allowed for premium. Once Kmet & Trautman were gone, I kept an eye on Claypool, Bryant and the others. I really wanted to snag one, but they all had issues that I couldn’t reconcile picking them when they were up. Predominantly Rds. 2-3. Worries me a bit about how things might actually unfold in the draft. I only did today’s picks.

    *To clarify, I wanted Davis over Kmet and Trautman. I figured I’d wait to see how the board fell and then trade up. I really wanted Traut and thought I could get him late 2nd-maybe early 3rd. After picking Ashtyn, that’s when I learned I couldn’t trade up and he was gone!

    In terms of testing Trautman was #1. Followed by Keene, Parkinson, Charlie T & Hopkins. Kmet was 7.

    So not a huge gap and I think talent closes that compared to someone like Parkinson or CT.

    I'd love to walk away with 2 of ... Pittman, Winfield, Mims, Trautman, Akers, Swift, Blacklock and a few others between 37-98.

    Like him a lot. I'm sure we'll move around, but I'd have no problem taking him at 71.

    I don’t think he gets out of the 2nd round. If we trade down in the 2nd. I like him and an extra pick in 3rd or 4th round. Playmaker, all over the field, Captain. Sounds like a Bruschi type

    Yeah, always tough to tell where they're going to go. Hes been mocked in the 3rd, even ahead of Jordyn Brooks at times. So he definitely could go before 71.
