Dwelley is nowhere near Toilolo in the blocking game. He's merely a spot receiving TE, hence why Kyle was going after Hooper, to upgrade there.

This. We'll either find another blocking TE or draft someone. Sure could use that Kaden Smith pick right about now.

There is such a thing as player development in blocking. Teach him how to block better if they haven't started already.

I'm not questioning if Dwelley can be developed, I am questioning if Dwelley is more of a receiving TE (body type) versus a blocking TE. Guys who look more like underweight OTs as extra blockers. Particularly with Celek retiring, we're going to bring in more TEs for both blocking and depth.
This loss is just simply devastating LOL

I know you are being sarcastic but it does hurt. He was a fantastic run blocker.

Ha. Not devastating but when he and Kittle were healthy finally, we ran our way to a Superbowl. You need key role players like this.

Definitely. The key with Toilolo is he came in and already knew the system...hence why Kyle also went after Hooper.

Hopefully there's another out there or Dwelley has worked really really hard on it.
They needed to find a better depth option for the backup FB / 3rd TE anyway. I'm confident they will.

the guy was our STAR blocker early in the season, until he fell in Choke Artist Kyle's " sit on the bench while I experiment w/other player " mentality.
Frankly, I never heard of him until he became a Niner.

So, I'm sure we'll find another guy to fill in adequately.

Losing celek and tolly is an issue. We need to address it with late round picks or udfa.
