Ok , you heard it here first. 9ers swap picks with one of two teams who wanted Kap initially, and if a pick above #10, swap back with someone else for an additional pick that would still get us Fleener before someone else does, plus a 2nd pick in rd 2 or 3. Using Kap in a trade is only thing that makes sense once JJ was signed.
Here is the catch: We start Fleener as a wideout in the slot, and keep Delanie at TE, a good hands guy who can also block. Putting Fleener in the slot should be a real tough matchup with whoever we play. Can you imagine a run to the side where Fleener is? We would have devastating blocking crew, running wide. Also playing in the slot, Fleener would be tough to stop on slants and outs, if other two WRs are going downfield.
Yeah it is a reach, but it would be one heckuva alignment and incredibly tough to defend. Browns obviously want a QB, but so do several others, and I am pretty sure we snagged Kap before 2 other teams, or Baalke and Coach would not have jumped picks had someone else not really wanted Kap badly. As for fleener being overated, man, look at any 2 or 3 of his game films plus watch NFL network's Luck pro day. Fleener is tough, fast and has good hands...make that great hands.
