Honestly I don't think Gettleman would waste a 1st round pick on this guy since we already have a TE in Greg Olsen. Pass!!

the fact that I want him is because we have Greg Olsen, we could run the two TE set like New England and play havoc with opposing defenses, we could run a 2-2-1 package and be unpredictable as hell, no team would ever know if we are going to run or pass because we could go 4 wide at any moment.

You want to talk about shock and awe that offense would be shock and awe

I'd still take Hopkins but I love that pick. Him at 14 and Hopkins at 44. Can you say elite offense?

i think we go WR or TE in the first two but we won go WR/TE in both I think one will be offense and one would be defense.

Skill position talent like Wr and TE usually falls off after the first round while defensive positions drop off too but not as much as offense. So I think we go Wr/TE in the first and DT/S/CB in the second

I can see Gettleman drafting TE if the Kellen Winslow news have died.


That news didn't "die". The only source who said it was Winslow himself.

There's been no real indication that there was any truth to his statement.

Tell that to new England who drafted Gradkowski and Hernandez. Truth is that having 2 tight ends that can play out wide and create mismatches like they would be able to do would make it very hard to defend. And it would actually allow us to develop the receivers we have.

I'm not against drafting another TE to help out. But with other bigs holes we need to fill as the starting position. TE is down on the list at this time. Difference between NE and us. That their team is already SB caliber and our is far from it. NE can afford to go after a TE in the 1st. While right at this second we can't afford it. Again I'm not against it, but we have other pressing needs right now. We need to address the secondary, DT, OG, and even at WR.
