I wish we could get a traditional TE who was an above average blocker but could still go out on routes. I actually think FA is a better way to fill this role at this point. Davis really needs to play Walker's position and we need a more traditional TE playing Davis's position. With Davis playing Walker's position he is going to absolutely freak defenses out trying to cover him.
He's pretty slow, but he's a massive target that can get up an catch the ball. He was ranked in the 2nd or 3rd by many draft sites, but now NFL Draft Scout has him as a 7th/FA.
Does anyone know why his ranking has dropped? Can his RZ success translate in the NFL?
Because he can't block for $%$. He's a worse blocker than Michael Egnew was coming last year and Egnew basically didn't play at all due to that. You need a TE that can block and catch the ball, otherwise you might as well just draft a tall WR.
