Wouldn't be mad at ASJ in the first at all. He's a pass catcher more in the Old fashion TE role but he would allow us to release ben stock and free up a roster space at the same time with a useful everydown player.That said i didn't  know his yac was that bad. He should be a beast at his size.

It's a shame when guys get on the drugs. Len Bias' death really opened my eyes and I steered clear of them. Except Alcohol, which I imbibed in way too much.

that was actually the first name i thought of when i made that post about cocaine.

 

i don't know why, but that whole thing really shook me and my little brother up. i was about 15 when that happened. neither of us were maryland fans but we liked both bias and lefty. it's a shame that lefty was made the scapegoat by the school.

 

and as far as the alcohol is concerned, i lost two friends to drunk driving when i was young. one good friend was hit on his bycicle just a little bit after getting home from school one day and another was a senior when i was a freshman who had just got a full four year scholarship to UNC playing DT who got drunk after a dance and drove head on into someone and died instantly.

 

both of those two really shaped my thinking on drinking.

You, me, and hopefully GMan. Not only his immediate and long term impact, but the difference between he and the other TEs is huge, literally and figuratively. He's Gronk 2.0. The drop isn't near as steep for the other positions. We can still get legit starter quality at WR/OL/DB later in the draft. I do fear I'm setting myself up for a letdown, but the possibility appears and should be REAL.

or he'll wind up out of the league and/or in jail.


Possibly but Chip had Colt on a tight leash while in Oregon. I see him controlling and molding Lyerla into a dangerous weapon.

Crockett Gillmore would be a solid #2 TE. I wouldn't be totally opposed to ASJ or Jace Amaro in the 1st, but I'd prefer a WR.

i love these reads done by rotoworld. one thing Peshek tweeted that was left out of the article was, ASJ had 34% of his receptions come inside of the red zone.

 

again, red zone targets is something this team needs.

I'll be honest and say, after looking at the stats (not using the WATCH 'EM PLAY strategy), I like Niklas the most. His 70%+ line-up on the line of scrimmage would make him an excellent TE2. We're not looking for heir apparent as I think we can/should re-sign Olsen to a manageable contract due to his chemistry and ability to line up in different spots.

 

He had the highest percentage of yards after contact, something we desperately need. My wife and I made it a running joke that a Panthers' first job after securing the ball was to fall down. Most of our TD plays were bombs IN the end zone, or, like Smitty always seems to deal with, getting stopped inside the 5. A bulldozer TE with decent hands (his % for drops is skewed considering his lower catch amount) who can get separation and 6+ YAC despite almost always lining up with the OL? 

 

He's 6'7", is the perfect go-to in the red zone that we so desperately need, and although he only has one real season of actual body of work (because of Eifert being used as TE1 before), he did manage a 30+ catch season to go along with his 5 TDs.

 

Not to mention he'd definitely be available in the late second round in my opinion. A few mocks have him going to the Falcons in the third.

I think if we draft some people who can receive the first two rounds and pick up some CBs through free agency then that'd be the best way to go. Or maybe finding a CB gem. If we can find safety gems in free agency for cheap who fit our scheme and UDFAs like Melvin White, then surely we can hit homeruns with third round picks? 

 

For example, I'd love Jean-Baptiste if he wasn't such a press corner. I hate the cushions our scheme gives WRs and wonder what our defense would look like with more corner presence. Jamming at the line hard and aggressively following WRs throughout the whole route is what got the Seahawks a Super Bowl ring. Even though we won't look at Roby, he is one of those boom or bust kinda guys to go along with his on-the-field issues. I'm still upset we didn't try to get the Honey Badger.

Kind of off subject, but I read something  (I found it) that basically said that Olsen won't be a cap casualty this coming season, but probably will be one next year as we'll only be on the hook for 2.7 mil, but will clear up 5 mil if he is cut.  The writer also mentioned the fact that when G-man won it all with the Giants, that cheap TEs were on the roster (Kevin Boss and Jake Ballard).

 

TE's are cheap............ even when their the best in the league.

Let's hope he's bpa on gett-mans board at 28. I'd love him here.
