Yea, with my guy gone I didn't mind him. Don't love it or hate it. That kicker pick though
Is this guy even good? How many average TEs are we gonna waste picks on?
I'm not sure about this pick at all. What does he give so amazing that he's worth 3rd round? We have TE's on this team. Starter and capable backup. What do you do with him? Special teams? 3rd string? I don't get this one.

I don't see him as an upgrade over what they had behind Kittle.

We are playing with house money (comp picks).

This is where i fall. He is average, not sure he excels over anything the current roster has. He is not a better blocker, receiver, or security blanket than any others.

Terrible.

Not a bad pick. Would've preferred him later though

With the way tight ends were coming off, that wasn't a possibility.
I thought we already have a Super Bowl roster?

We just picking up needs. Can easily cut any of these guys

Are we trading him too?
I don't mind this pick at all if we didn't mess up with the Moody pick. Also I can't believe we are going all-in with Lenoir with no safety net behind him. Eli Ricks the 6'2 corner was still there.
