I'm not backing off on anything I've stated earlier on why he would fit this offense. Still would like to have him and it's still not out of the question. Honestly, I'd like to see another big play TE period; And this wish is based off of me watching Stanford in 2010, not New England in 2011. Some think that Delanie or even Nate Byham would be able to fill that role just fine, but I don't see either bringing to the table the skils a player like Fleener would. Can't see how adding another big play threat with a guy that would probably play 50% or more of the offensive snaps would be considered a luxury. I see both he and Vernon getting anywhere between 600-1000 yards each in this offense.
Either way, I'm surprised, but not upset with the pick of AJ Jenkins, because we needed a receiver at some point. Now the focus can shift to OL, S, OLB, and maybe we still get that TE
