Anyone worried we may go TE in the 2nd round and it won't be Fleener?
If you told me I had 2 picks after #10 to make my offense better in the near and long term, Fleener would be one of the picks. You would get more dynamic plays and edge pass protection in a division of edge rushers from being in a base 2 tight end set than most other things you could do offensively.
I would certainly pick Fleener (plus an additional 2nd) and one of the second round guard/centers over 2 more interior linemen.
I'd rather go defense, but I get why we would want to add Fleener a 6-6 guy who can run a 4.5 and knows how to find holes in zones is pretty valuable.
