In small sample sizes, both Ferguson and Hendershot have looked like very capable NFL TE's. I wasnt high in Ferguson, but he is looking like he could become a Shultz like value in the 4th round. Talent wise, Hendershot isnt as far behind as his UDFA status implies. Without the the DV, Hendershot may have went 4th/5th.

How confident are you that either or both of these players can adequately replace Shultz in 2023

Let Schulz walk and take the comp
The other 2 are just fine

The coaches believe Schultz is the best TE- as evidenced by playing time. They work with these players daily, and know who the best player is.

The analysts that study football widely regard Schultz as one of the best TE's in the entire league.

We can speculate about the future, but today- Shultz is the best TE on the team, and it's not really close. He's seasoned, and plays very smart. Consistent. He has really good hands, and is a disciplined and dependable route runner. His blocking has developed over time, and has become a decent blocker now too. He possesses neither the blazing speed of the most athletic TE's, nor the power of the best blocking TE's. Instead, he is a well rounded, dependable and productive TE.

The coaches think he’s better than 2 rookies? LOL
He’d have to be total crap to be worse
just stop it

We’ll then we should sign him to a multi year contract deserving of one of the best tightends in the NFL, right?

Hendershot might be more versatile than Ferguson or Schultz. Question is, can Moore take advantage of that.

A "fast" TE would give Dallas a different option, especially in the redzone like we saw on Thursday

Pretty confident
They are both young guys who are not only playing solid but will get better and already solid blockers

No problem if he leaves, just keep drafting TEs or signing vets. I have no overt concerns about the TE group at this point.

That becomes a question of resource allocation. There are other players the team will want to keep, perhaps more so. And then there is the question of how easily the team can replace Schultz's production.

My point is just that Schultz is a very good TE, and it would be a mistake to simply assume that an unproven rookie can step right in and perform just as well.

Sadly, some fans in this thread believe the 2 rookie TE's are better than Schultz.
Perhaps you should tell them to "stop it"
:rolleyes:

In defense of Schultz, he is our best route runner. And it's not even close. I hope he comes back. But I would not break that bank over him.

That's the one gripe I had about late years Witten was wherever he caught the ball was as far as he was ever going to get.

Schutz is just like that right now. I like how Fergi and Hendershot try and break tackles and get extra yards.

Like I used to say about Witten, if it's 3rd and 5, he'll get you five yards. And if it's 3rd and 13, well, he'll get you five yards.

Ferguson looks really promising IMO... he's shown some wiggle after the catch, and has been a good blocker even against bigger DLs. Those were my two biggest questions about his scouting profile... if he's answered those, he is starter material for sure.

They’re both better blockers as well as being more athletic. All Schultz has is experience and Chemistry with dak.

He makes you miss better than I expected. Schultz had wittens se
Speed and athleticism . The problem is, he’s 10-14 pounds lighter than Witten was.

I don't know it seems to me that betweenthe wr and te groups it's schultz thats made the least errors. I could be wrong but I'm not so sure we need to run him off just yet.

If he's willing to talk reasonable contract sure keep him but not with a franchise tag again and certainly don't give him a Jaylen Smith type deal, I just don't think he's worth it.

Agreed. we don't need to break the bank but if given a fair deal I think he'd stay, until someone just comes to him with stupid money which I doubt happens.

Confident but not sure I've seen them do enough in the redzone yet.
