Dolphan9954 summed up my feelings pretty well. I am one who advocated going DL in the first round. That was because I thought our record would be worse and I didn't see a WR worthy of a top 15 pick but I did see DL guys that were.

If I could trade back, pick up another 2nd round pick, and get the TE from ND late in the first I'd be loving that. I think he could contribute sooner than a WR. Being they are from the same team Fasano should take him under his wing (even if he sees his future replacement).



Alright...hypothetically:

We sit @ draft pick #17 and no one's willing to trade back. Do you take TE?

I think that's the interesting question. If we get to trade back and manage another 2nd in the process I think we'll be hard-pressed to screw this draft up no matter who we select.

That is an interesting scenario, I'll take stab at that if you don't mind ...

My answer is no, not if there is an OG or Sack specialist worthy of #17.

I think it's important to remember that we'd still have the ability to move up or down considering we
have another 4 pks in rnds 2 and 3.

It just seems to me that by this logic you are still addressing a players quality & team needs at the right time & value.

I mean unless you are 100% certain your looking at the next Antonio Gates.

my 2 cents

I am not sure there is a TE worth the 17th pick and it is a weak class. Tyler Eifert is solid though

If you can get a TE in the caliber of Gronkey Kong, Hernandez, Davis, etc. yes you take him in the first round. But in the Fasano class? No.
