    The first offense v defense match up, and it is a couple of Bama boys. The Allen-Thomas battle was close and did not go the way I thought. This one should be interesting.

    This is the toughest one out of all of round 2 to me. I love both of these guys and would be thrilled if we got either.

    I went Howard because I feel our DL is a strength and after Walked, we have nothing at TE.

    I love Allen as well, but believe Howard would have the bigger impact on our team.

    I'm all for taking Defense with 5 and 18 but in this case, I just think our DL is not where I would spend either pick. That said, I think Howard improves the team more than Allen would.

    Allen will be a good player. OJ could be better, or worse.

    At #5 I want a guy that has freakish athletic ability or has shown to be a true impact player. I just don't see it in Allen. I think he will be a very solid pro player, but I'm not sure he will be an impact player. I really think Howard could be a matchup nightmare. I just don't see Allen as a guy that offenses have to game plan against.

    Like them both. Not sure how Allen beat out Thomas. It's a tie in my book. Read on if you care.

    Howard is the best TE in the draft but he not the Myles Garrett of TE's in this draft. (Nobody is) But pairing OJH with DW in two TE sets with the other backfield options we have would be beastly.

    We REALLY need to improve the D. I just can't say grab a TE at #5 because we can get a different significant offensive weapons with #12-18. So if we're at 5 I'd have to go Allen because we will WIN more games because Allen's speed/power on our DL than we would with OJH blocking/catching. If we're picking at >=#10 and Allen gone, then I'd go Howard.
