Thread: TE COACH POPE ON COBY FLEENER

    Re: TE COACH POPE ON COBY FLEENER

    [quote user="Neverend"][quote user="gmen0820"]BTW, the article this was pulled out of has nothing to do with Fleener.[/quote]

    Exactly.. i read this in a peter king excerpt about the giants.

    cute little attempt by the OP[/quote]

    This is what I read from Ralph V on twitter and thought Pope said it about Fleener. If not, I am sorry.

    For those hoping the Giants draft Coby Fleener, the @SI_PeterKing story includes this quote from TE coach Mike Pope ...

    Yeah but I think this quote is being taken out of context.

    Kevin Boss was NOT a run blocking tight end coming out of college, I remember him lacking pretty bad in that area.

    Also, Beckum was obviously not good at run blocking at all coming out, he was known strictly as a H back. Furthermore we all know Shockey was terrible at run blocking coming out of college.

    I seriously cant remember the last time the Giants drafted a run blocking tight end? I think Pope knows he can coach a guy to learn how to block but pass catching is something you have or you don't.

    [quote user="AllTuckedUp"]"If it's gonna snow and the wind's gonna blow, we gotta run the ball, and we need tight ends who can block." ... As you likely know, there are some questions (from scouts) about Fleener's blocking ability. He's much more of a receiver than a blocker. In fact, some scouts see him as more of a WR than a TE.

    Looks like we would go with Dwayne Allen first?[/quote]

    We have two blocking TEs (Pascoe, Bennet).

    We don't have a pass threat TE.

    Draw your own conclusions.

    [quote user="giantsfan420"]and we already have a great blocking TE in Bennett...[/quote]

    Exactly why we get a TE in the 6th round. We dont care much about our TEs, as evident with Boss, Ballard, Pascoe ect...

    I am confident that if we did get a guy like Fleener or Allen, Coach Pope would get a lot out of them. Fleener would be a terrific pick. With the rules the way they are in the passing game now, talented athletes in the passing game are putting up huge numbers.

    One thing you can be sure of, Reese won;t reach for anyone. He'll pick to the strength of the board. I am hoping we have a good DE or Corner, or maybe a RB for our first pick.
