I've heard numerous times that he is an insane blocker for his position. He solo blocks DEs on many of our runs. His lateral movement doesn't seem like it's the best either, which is a big reason why I wouldn't consider him for wide receiver. He produces at TE and this offense focuses on TE play quite a bit so he's probably in the right position.
Vernon is a good TE and needs to remain there. I think if there is one thing I'd like him to work on is going up and grabbing the ball. When we get to the red zone, a big part of why our offense slows is because we don't have one guy that goes up to grab the ball.
