    Jets made a good pick at TE

    Turns out when that guy played for Tubberville as a Soph he did a lot of blocking (the knock on him)

    Claims to have pancaked 18-20 guys that year

    After Tubberville left A@M the emphasis shifted to the passing game with Johnny Football

    Statistically that is true.

    I was merely listing the negative facts about him. Those are all absolute facts.


    My opinion about his film is different and mixed. I made it known I liked him,just not as much as many here. I felt he was not a 1st rounder and that he was the 3rd best TE in the draft(behind Ebron and ASJ.) As it turns out, that is the exact order they went.

    The reason I mention his small hands is because if you watch his tape you see him make catches almost exclusively in wide open spaces without defenders around. There are very few contested catches at all. That goes to the level of defenses he played all year too. He will not be that open as routinely in the NFL and when fighting for contested catches having small hands does matter.

    He will still fit in with the Jets just fine and he will make catches. I was not implying that he is a garbage player. I just felt that based on Reese pre draft comments about valuing blocking from the TE position and based on his character concerns he wasn't ever going to be picked by the Giants. He is a poor blocker and had 2 big character red flag incedents.

    He had the smallest hands in the entire TE class.

    His level of competition was horrific. Many of the defenses he played were among the worst in the nation.

    He cant block and only really lined up as a slot receiver in college.

    yeah that guy is off the wall huh?......then again Amaro insists he is a very very good blocker......Hey if we are going 4-12 in a rebuild year It would be nice to see NY's other team go somewhere.....and Of course Cleveland is now my favorite AFC team :-)

    He himself admitted this in his post draft interview- the blocking critic

    Thus the comment about how he was used as a Sophomore
