    I'm relieved that we avoided temptation and went defense on our first pick, but i was somewhat hoping we would draft the next 'potential' shockey regardless of the TEs we already have on our roster..

    could you imagine the short field weapons we would have if we had drafted olsen..

    Troupe has one more season to prove something or TE may be high pick in '08.

    why? uummm... :rolleyes: maybe because we don't have Tom Brady as QB and bringing in someone to float 10 yds away from him ready to make a catch would be nice. :suspect:

    TJ's totally right. Troupe hasn't shown enough and if he doesn't this year it could be a top selection next year. He would've been a good pick for us, IMO. Could be a Shockey in our system and fill a need at the recieving end. Would've been better than selecting a WR. Also, did you see his hands? Someone like that would be our next Wycheck for Vince.

    Apparently the front page of the paper in Chicago today was about his rap lyrics... they didn't test those at the combine.

    Really, great TE's can be found (and often are) at any point in the draft. It is often said that the best TE's are playing in the NBA. I would agree with that. No need to ever use a high pick on one unless there is a Vernon Davis type prospect available.

    Its well known that TE's are an easier target for a QB to throw to, and as Pitbull said we don't have a Brady or a Manning at QB, no offense to Vince...
