    I assume people are basing their judgment mostly on Ebron's performance at his Pro Day, because I truly do not understand the lack of excitement for this kid. He's a far better blocker than the majority of the posters on here give him credit for (which seems to be the only "negative" in his game), and at his age he can only get better. He's not a head case and seems to be a good locker room presence/off-field character.



    If he's there at 12 and we don't get him I'll be surprised. To me, it's either him or Donald.
    Why draft a guy who has the dropsies 11.4% drop rate. Who underimpresses at the pro day. He's not the prospect Eiffert, Randolph or Ertz were. Neither is he going to be the next julius thomas or jimmy graham. Likes to "gallop' over defenders, injury flags fly everywhere. And besides, the FA market has PROVEN TE's like Keller, Owen Daniels, Dallas Clark. Just sign one of the TE FA's, and draft Donald, a real stud, who had one of the best DT combines of the last decade.

      You keep saying this, but I haven't actually seen why you don't want him. Any specific reason besides just being an "average" blocker?
      He is a BELOW AVERAGE blocker and 12 is too high for a TE who can't block, its pretty simple

        I would take Donald in a heartbeat before ever even thinking about a TE at 12

          I'd be real happy with Donald, but think Ebron is a difference maker as well In regards to your previous post, Ebron is, at worst, average at blocking. I watched the kid for the last couple/few years and he's absolutely fine at blocking.

          I also saw someone mention he's not the prospect Ertz, and a few others. To me, I don't know if there's been a TE prospect like Ebron in quite some time......but to argue those points would come down to personal opinion.

          Again, after watching this kid for the last couple seasons, I have no concerns with his hands or blocking ability. Compound the ability he currently has with an off-season or two with an NFL team, and I think we have the makings of a pro-bowler for years to come.
          NFL Draft (Realistic Hope):

          Rd 1
          Garrett Bolles - OT
          David Njoku - TE
          Zach Cunningham - OLB

            Dustin Keller is coming off of having his knee destroyed, and the rest of those guys are over the hill.


            This seems like a CLASSIC smokescreen to me "AFC personnel executive told nj.com." hmmm Aren't the Jets in need of a TE? and hasn't Ebron been Mocked to them before? yeah Ok.

              I think it is a deep class in terms of value like last year's. But I don't think the top guys were as good as Eiffert coming out.
