    He seems really light for a TE

    He is light, and some say he should be a WR. I do like what I've seen as a receiver. I didn't think to watch him closely as a blocker though, although I'd be surprised if he is much of one at his size.

    Reminds me of Tamme, and if these guys are below avg blockers like Troupe, I don't think they fit in very well. Maybe they can bulk up and be good blockers, who knows.

    He is certainly quick enough to be a Colston-like WR.

    Yeah maybe he could be a good, big WR. But he also could be a bit like Mike Williams....but maybe the Titans like that :lol:

    Heck if the kid runs a sub 4.5 he would be faster than Mike Williams. If we do go TE in the first two rounds we better get a real stud. Unless we can find someone who is a decent upgrade to Scaife we will have wasted a pick, especially that early.

    There is nobody at TE that deserves a first rounder this year. He is similar to Tamme, both of which are definitely guys we should consider.

    Remember, the problem with Troupe is that he's a dunce that is never in the right place (plus the injuries).

    There's someone that catches on Florida other than Harvin?

    why bother? UF doesn't try to run the ball anyway.

    Yeah that's why I liked watching Carlson and Davis this year. You'd see them block as on the line TE's like you'd see here. The guy from Missouri, Rucker, was used more like a receiver too. Hardly saw him block.

    I'd be surprised if we took a TE that may be a liability as a blocker. That's why Davis and Carlson seem like the two most likely candidates to me. Maybe Cottam later.
