I didn't realize that was Brandon Williams, he is absolutely jacked. Hopefully he makes it.

Honestly I like Hartsock as a person, but I just don't think he's the guy we are looking for.

The only issue with Brandon is health. Other than that, he's a very talented TE. Oregon wanted to employ him in the passing attack badly. Unfortunately it didn't work out. Hopefully in our case it does. He's got first-round potential.

Williams' YAC ability is what makes him special. He's a very solid blocker too. Hopefully he makes it to the preseason.

 I have read where Rosario is not a good blocker.  IMO this puts Williams ahead of Rosario.  If you are going to play TE you need some decent hands but you have to be able to BLOCK.   This is exactly why Barnidge didn't see the field very much.

 

Olsen and Hartsock are locks.  I would be shocked to see Hartsock gone.

 

IMO Brockel's versatility to fill either the fullback role or Tight End is going to make it tough to keep Rosario or Williams.  Williams may fit the practice squad.

 

With a premium on roster spots a versatile veteran that can fill two positions is better than either Rosario or Williams.

from everything im reading, I think Williams have  a good chance to make it.I would much rather see him in 2 TE sets, then Hartsock.

You also got to be able to catch if you're a TE too which Hartsock can't. If Williams keeps improving, Hartsock is on the bubble.

Hartsock had drop the other day but also had a pretty nice catch in the endzone (or so I read).  I honestly think if we keep two we keep Olsen and Hartsock.

 

Based on the word Williams blocks better than Rosario.  I would bet he is ahead on the depth chart because he can do both.

 

Plus Williams is a Practice Squad candidate. So we could retain him develop him to take Hartsock in 2014.

 

IMO if someone pops Hartsock's bubble (as you call it) It will be Williams not Rosario.
