- Get off the Eifort and Ertz bandwagons. They will be long gone before #31.
- We have a good TE to replace Walker with (if he leaves) in Celek. Knows the system, showed some good skills when he got the chance to play.
- See #1. If you think paying Delanie will be expensive, those 2 guys will be even more expensive long-term.
Not like they can't add another TE in the draft, there will be plenty available in Rounds 3,4 and beyond. Plus there are WR's who could eventually fill the Delanie role at h-back, such as Mark Harrison of Rutgers.
I agree 100% there are lots of better than average TE prospects this year. My point was to stress that the two I named aren't going to be available at #31. In fact, I hope we DO draft another TE this year. Got plenty of picks, and pretty deep talent in the draft, so why not? I'll also go on the record as saying Matt Scott gets drafted in the (late) 3rd rd, unless he absolutely tanks at his pro day.
