How expensive would a guy in the 3rd or 4th round be, especially if it opens up the offense further next year. Put a talented receiving threat at tight-end across from Vernon Davis and the defense HAS to respond. Currently they don't HAVE to respond because they can shutdown 6'0" Delanie Walker with a safety.
Now what if you have a guy who happens to be 6'4", 6'5", 6'6", going across the middle, teams can't defend that AND VD without adjusting their scheme. In the red-zone, is it easier to defend a 6 foot tall tight-end or a 6'5" tight-end with good hands? The reason why I ask is because this draft has several talented tight-ends with good hands, guys like Ladarius Green. You saw what having a big talented tight-end does for the Saints, if you're going to play a 2 TE offense, why not have the 2nd guy be a big, physical scoring threat as well?
