This team doesn't have a lot of roster room or need for depth. What is needed is an impact guy. So while I don't expect them to move up past 18 or so, a move to 20-22 seems a likely scenario, even though it may not be Fleener.
I agree with you in some cases. For all the people talking about Fleener, they also need to ask themselves if they are willing to part with the 1st and 3rd/4th rounder to move up and get him.
As far as this offence is concerned, I'm starting to like the addition of Fleener a bit more. Alex has always been better at working the middle of the field with TE's than he is going deep and/or outside to his WR's. By adding another big pass-catching TE we might also be playing to Alex's strengths as a QB.
