great value here
knock on him is that he gets alligator arms over the middle... not the best trait for a TE
gotta root for a local kid though
anyone think comparing him to aaron hernandez is fair? just not as tough
So does Aaron Hernandez. I'll still take it.
From what I have seen....he's a little tight hipped, but you can't deny the speed.
Good late round pick.
We take our first guy with questionable effort and heart, but he's got athletic upside.
Point blank, he will have to play tougher (don't know if you can teach that), but another guy with a smoking 3 cone time of 6.76....
Starting to catch the theme yet...
It's just a comparison, no one is saying he'll be as good.
And Hernandez drops a ton of passes across the middle. He got gotten in hot water for it with Belichick and seen his role reduced for it at times.
if that is true about going over the middle that sucks. I mean seriously anymore the Defense cannot lay wood without getting a flag. And for a big TE its not like those little guys can really do all that much to you.
Though maybe in this case once he finds out that the hits dealt in college across the middle don't happen in the NFL anymore he might get better.
Is it possible the war room argument was over the kids toughness? I'm going to guess Jerry liked him and Garrett didn't since Jerry seems more the guy to become enraptured with his athletic numbers.
I want to see plenty of this (last play).
We just won super bowl number 6 with this pick
this is what I am thinking also. Garrett still seemed mad after the pick while jerry was all smiles.
Come on, 90% of the board thinks Garrett is calling the shots.:laugh1:
Who is questioning his toughness going over middle.
A muppet could turn this guy into a serious weapon in the NFL.
I hope Garrett can.
Even if this pick was Jerrah, all the rest seem to definitely be the RHG. Gotta give the Owner/GM one Al Davis pick.
Didn't we already win Super Bowl 6??
Could be some truth in there, all of them contribute to who is picked and not picked so at anytime some will agree and not agree.
It is good to see them all having a say though. I like the pick, he can develop behind the best and he is a really smart 'character' guy so he will learn.
