That's right, the greatest prospect of the last 15 years, and possibly of all time. The sure-fire future hall of famer. The Stanford phenom...Coby Fleener. My proposal is to trade our first, 2nd, 3rd and next year's first, second, 3rd, and the following year's first, second and third, to trade up to #3 overall. My only hope is that the Colts and Redskins don't come to their senses and pick him. We all know that there is 0 chance Fleener makes it to #4, therefore we must pick him at #3, or our franchise will forever be doomed. If we do draft him, we will be winning every Super Bowl from here on in. Even after he retires. He will be critical on 3rd downs, not only as a receiver, but also as a QB and offensive lineman...all on the same play! Our red zone conversion percentage will sky rocket to 100% (on bad days).
in case my frustration over the trade-up talks for a good not great TE are not obvious, I will restate it. Cobe Fleener is an avg. first rd. TE prospect. Perhaps with Tom Brady throwing the ball to him he could be really good, but chances are, in our system, while he would be helpful, he would not be more than a 700 yard/ 7 TD player. Not while VD is there. Those numbers would, of course, be fantastic from a #2 TE, and he would be great on 3rd downs, and in the red zone, and would give us a more traditional TE. However, some suggestions that we should be packaging our 2nd round pick, or even our 1st next year...WTF? Where do people think he's going? Top 7? He'll likely be there at 30, and it's also likely that someone more valuable will be there at 30 as well.
