Jermaine Gresham anyone?

Based on how often we rely on a 2-TE set, both him and Vernon would be starters, and create major match up issues. He can also play in the slot when we're not using 2 TEs. With this injury I see a possible drop as late as the bottom of the 2nd. I would love to trade up from our 3rd round pick if that's the case and get him.

Thoughts?

And yes, I do know we have Vernon Davis and that this is not a major "need" pick. But he would help our team get W's, and W's are a need. Therefore I can argue that this IS a need pick.

What do you mean? I just explained. Because we run 2 TE formations very often, therefore another TE will be pretty much a starting receiver. Crabtree--VD--Gresham--Morgan

We have Walker who is a great reciever already.

because we already have walker whos more than average as a reciever. we dont need to waste a high draft pick on a te when we have much more needs then a te. we will go with a wr more than a te

You rather have a receiver? So you're saying that the difference between Morgan and a 2nd round WR is greater than the difference between Walker and Gresham?
i see what u mean but o line is too much of an issue to ignore

not just any wr a speed wr who can stretch the field. i doesnt matter anyways cuz no way in hell we take gresham
walker is underrated as a receiver... he's good to go. we need OL/secondary help with our high picks... not spend it on a position we have locked down depth-wise and talent-wise.

but delanie needs to hold on to the f**king ball!
if people on here want a better 2nd TE opposite VD than may I suggest Ed Dickson TE Oregon Ducks.
Definately don't want to spend a number one on a TE, but a good option in the later rounds (4-5) would be Dennis Pitta out of BYU. The guy has had a ton of receptions at BYU. I don't know how his blocking is though. Could be a good project guy.

Not a chance. We have two receiving TE's already. A blocking third TE could be had in the later rounds, free agency or UDFA.
I remember when the Titans picked Chris Johnson and everyone tore them apart for it because they were already good at RB. You can never have too much offensive weapons, regardless of the position they play. My argument is that having VD and Gresham on the field at the same time is more dangerous to the opposition than having VD, Walker and a lesser WR (lesser means that the WR is not as good as Gresham). Sure, if we can get a WR who is as talented as Gresham then I'm all for it, but why not overwhelm the defense, even if it is from the TE position?
