A starting Tight End is a bigger need than a backup WR.
Umm we have a starting TE.
WCO usually doesn't run two-TE sets from what I remember.
But Harbaugh does. I think Fleener would be a huge upgrade to our passing game. Look at NE this year. I think that having Fleener on the field with davis turns us into a MUCH bigger passing threat than a great wideout. Given our coach and QB tendancies it also makes more sense to go TE to improve the passing game. I also agree we have a starter at TE but Vernon is all the more reason we should get Fleener. Fleener needs work on his blocking but we don't really need him to be that guy. We could create some matchup nightmares with Fleener and Vernon and two other wideouts on the field.
And how much production was the second TE accounted for?? We could get the same production from a TE in the later rounds, not so sure I'd go that way with a WR.
