    This is a WR-heavy draft, and for this go-around I tend to agree. It's not an area of dire need, but I think Reese should be willing to pull the trigger on someone in the third or fourth round if he feels the value is there. I like Cody Lattimer a lot. Put up freak numbers at the combine and his tape more than passes the eye test.

    No it isn't, especially if a TE is taken early.

    Well we better get a TE or WR in the first 3 rounds. I don't care which but we need a solid pair of hands and threat to open space for Cruz and give E more options.

    Amaro has a higher ceiling than ASJ or Nikilas. He is a passing threat that is willing to block, he is a capable blocker he needs to improve on inline blocking as its something he rarely did at TT. review the tape, he is only third on Mayocks list due to the poor combine performance, but you do not measure a prospect on just combine you need to look at the body of work

    If you watch individual game highlights of amaro you will see he DOES block and fairly well during some games. Only question is can he be taught how to block on an NFL level so he can actually contribute year 1? People have been debating about WR/TE and the bottom line is we need one of those positions to come in and immediately help the offense. I'd rather go DT in round one and TE in round 2 than take ebron in round 1

    We just need a TE who isn't terrible at blocking, Davis is the Pascoe upgrade

    Dude you don't gotta tell me lol tell them, I see him blocking CB/S/ and some LB's he can block and get some leverage doing it, He doesn't do much inline blocking, but when he does he doesn't shy away from getting physical, he's is far from finesse he plays physical. I have him rated above Ebron Loook up the post I wrote about TE's specifically, I did enough research as I could on the top 3 prospects and to me its 1.Amaro 2a. Ebron 2b. ASJ as an overall grade.

    I agree I think the hype on ebron would push ASJ/Amaro to the second round, only one TE is going round one, I feel the better value is in the second round for TE.

    He can be taught to inline block, but he might not have to do that much , just a chip block and go so he can threaten the seam and give the OL time to adjust or just help. We don't need a blocking TE we need a receiving threat to take the pressure off the WR's and give eli a short-intermediate target to cut down on those INT's and increase his Yards.
