Cole Wick was good enough to make our active roster last year which isn't really saying too much. However, I think he still has a role with the team as a #3 TE while we wait and see how he develops. Ebron is Ebron (not necessarily a big fan), Darren Fells is a great blocking TE. Do we ignore the TE depth of this class while we see what Cole Wick could be? Thoughts?

He isn't that great, he was a fan favorite because he was a UDFA who came from a small school, but he really didn't do too much. Fells isn't a long term option and Ebron is approaching the end of his contract. They will likely be looking for someone that can be a 2nd TE. Cole Wick isn't that. Cole Wick is someone you put on your practice squad to have ready in case someone gets injured.

Wick simply isn't good enough to warrant not trying to upgrade.

Because I don't know much of anyone who tends to talk about benchwarmers a whole lot.

I don't think he's great or anything, but I still think he'll make the team because they haven't gone out and brought in more highly talented TE's imo. I think it's Ebron, Fells, Wick for the TE position with some rookie on the practice squad.

I'd consider it an upset if Wick makes it over Roberts.

They played street free agents like Clay Harbor and Khari Lee over Wick. They went out and signed Darren Fells and they drafted Michael Roberts in the 4th round. Wick isn't making the roster unless they decide to carry 4 TE's or if someone above him gets injured.

Literally forgot about Michael Roberts honestly. An I thought Wick went down with an injury mid season which is why guys where signed etc. IDK I could be mistake I don't have a link and don't really care to look up I just thought he played a game and got hurt or something.

Cole Wick isn't junk or anything like that. I think that he does have talent and he is skilled but I think he is around 2 years away from being constant enough to be on the field during games in a consistent manner. There is no way that he takes Ebron's, Fells, or Roberts spot and if they carry 4 TE's then he will make it but unseating Roberts is never going to happen. Roberts is going to be a force for this team and he is going to turn heads. Wick is a fine player and a good emergency option.
