convert Vance to FB / HBack / secret weapon

No way to the first idea

Yes and make that Colt Lyerla

Keep Vance as a blocking 2-set TE kind of like Gronk/Hernandez used to be

Make Lyerla that FB/HB secret weapon.

Watch that^

I've been saying this all year if we don't draft him we are going to regret it later.
I FEEL LIKE HE COULD BE THE BEST TIGHT END IN THE NFL.
As for the video, fast forward to 1:32 and keep in mind this guy is 6'5 250lbs.

There is one major issue with this line of thinking...we don't run a spread offense like the Pats. In fact, we run the Anti-Spread offense.
one word "Awesome"

Context: In Brent Jones' first year, he got into 4 games and had 2 receptions for 35 yards on the season.

Exactly. Thank you.

I think a lot of the guys on Oregon's offensive squad benefited from busted plays. That tempo made it really hard for college defenses to stay on their game, and missed assignments can make anyone look good. I'm a little skeptical of guys from that program making the leap to the pros.

That said, I do like the TE / FB hybrid, and he seems to have good wheels coming out of the backfield.

There is ZERO chance Lyerla is a Niner. Even if Baalke thought he was the best player in the draft there's no way Harbs ok's a thin skinned quitter. NFL fans are completely unrealistic in their expectations, this thread a shining example, and you need thick skin to be good in the NFL. Lyerla quite school because he couldn't handle the hate he received for claiming Sandyhook (I think it was sandyhook) was a fake government set up occurrence to push gun control. If he thinks the s**t he got for that was worth quitting school, imagine the s**t he'll get from NFL fans if he struggles.

Harbs puts too much stock into trust and how can he trust a kid who quit on his college program for such a small and insignificant reason.
I hate to bring up a sore spot regarding Big Mac but does anyone have a video or gif of his "drop" against Carolina; regular season game??

This was the only game i missed during the season and never got around to watching... although i don't think i could get through the entire game... heard there was sure TD he dropped. Just want to see how it went down.

thanks-

Great defensive play...tugging his arm back and then ripped it straight up before VM could fully tuck it away.
Thanks for the video.

Shows an excellent D play pulling his arm making it almost impossible to hang on to the ball.

Confident Vance will have an excellent 2nd season. Especially if they throw to him more.

He needs to work w/Kap in the off season to build a rapport.

They should invite Roman so he has an idea of using them.

Yup. It was a good throw but the ball needed to be over the shoulder more and then Krackly would be shielded by Mcdonald's body. A great throw beats that great Defense.

It wasn't even that poor of a throw as it was just an excellent play by a DPOTY candidate BUT in hindsight, you are correct...just another foot out in front and it's golden...VM certainly had a good step on him (so that's encouraging).
