CBS Mock-Ebron@28

If Ebron was there at #28, you almost have to take him.  Little doubt that he'd be the BPA at that point.  He'd also give us a legit red zone target which is an element that we sorely lack in our offense.  I love Olsen, but despite his size, he's not a great red zone target.

Turn him into a #1 WR.

Too bad Ebron's going Top 10 to the Bills. 12 at worst to the Giants :(

Just like the guy says, someone has to fall to you.

If not for the Dickson pickup, I would really like this pick.  I'm not saying that Dickson will provide the same level of play that Ebron could, but you damn well better believe that Dickson will be giving 100% out there because his career is on the line.  Ebron, on the other hand, has a reputation for not trying when it comes to blocking.  And that bothers me.

 

I'd still be happy with this pick, because Ebron is more talented than a #28 overall should be, but I'm not sure it makes as much sense anymore now that we already acquired another pass-catching TE.

Your #1 receiver doesn't necessarily have to play WR.  Jimmy Graham is without a doubt the Saints' #1 receiver.  Same with Gronk in NE when he's healthy.  In his prime, Gates was in SD and so was Gonzalez in KC.  There was probably also a time when you could've argued that Shannon Sharpe was the #1 target in Denver.

 

If Ebron is on the board with a bunch of guys who are likely #2 WRs, give me Ebron.  He has the talent to be an elite NFL TE.  I'll take an elite TE prospect over a decent starting WR prospect all day everyday.

I love what it says as well, "Someone has to fall, you know?"  Exactamundo, and the Gettfather will be sitting dead red on them.  Ebron would be similar to Cordarelle Patterson-who I mentioned yesterday-also mocked in the top 20 and even top 10 for much of the mock season, then falls to 29.  Would jump all over Ebron and would be a fool not to.  "Someone has to fall, you know?"

Dickson signed a 1 year, veteran minimum contract.  No one on a 1 year, veteran minimum contract is going to have one bit of impact on a team's 1st round draft pick.  You draft a guy in the 1st round for the next decade.

Would fap if Ebron or one of the big OT's fell to us. Sadly New Orleans has similar needs as us and they could screw us.
