Jimmy Graham is elite. Olsen has great hands, but Jimmy Graham, he is not.

So, I guess for TEs, there's "elite" (aka, NORMAL limitations), and then there's super-elite Jimmy Graham.


I see it as WR playing TE role

I think Remmers is our viable RT. Unless he degrades.


Successful teams never just pencil in a guy that had a few good games as the starter.

Competition always breeds success

Olsen can't even run a 5.0. His hands are elite, but his lack of ability to do anything with the football drops him to just "Good" in my book.


YAC make WRs elite, not TEs. Sure, it's nice, but not really the expected for TEs in order to be considered elite

Norwell is Average not bad.

Truth be told, Kalil had a very pedestrian year himself, but came back to form the later half of the year when the two rookies were flanking him. I think his down year can be attributed to the talent that surrounded him.

One thing I find encouraging is that a lot of the players that they list as "average" have the potential to be at least "good" in the upcoming season.

Kalil, Norwell, Norman, Star, Benjamin, and Turner all have the potential to make that jump to "good" next year. Then there's Boston, Ealy, and Remmers who have potential but just didn't play that much.

By PFF's logic, things are looking up for us. If we can get a decent tackle, a legit starting receiver, and Safety, we'll be contending for a Superb Owl.


Your assessment of Kalil is why I think it is vital to find a seasoned, starting vet at the RT spot at minimum. Remmers can be a rotational player for a year or two. I'm much like the rest tho, rather find a vet LT, but I don't see it happening.

Anyone familiar with the back up LT from Buffalo, Hairston. He is due to be a FA

Kony Ealy listed as bad?



I don't think they gave improvement points. If you were to look at the collective year, you could probably justify the "bad" rating. If one were to look at his individual body of work then one would see the improvement and adjustment to the game
