    My thinking was just that DD knows him. Aside from that, a TE can be effective in both the run and pass game. Besides, who knows what Heath will be like that coming off his injury?

    I dont know that I agree with this. Ertz is very unique in that he has the speed to actually stretch a defense. He runs past safeties.

    He knew well before 3 days before the game. He knew going back to Dec 6th. Had a month to deal with it mentally before playing. I don't think it was as much this as it was his limitations being exploited by Alabama.
    Here comes the BOOM!

    I was thinking that the TE would not only be a weapon, but would actually help in the run game and pass protection as well.

    Although not a 1st round guy (according to draft sites, anyway... after the Seahawks picked Bruce Irvin in the 1st last year- who isn't a potential 1st round guy?) Chadman reckons the 'best' overall WR in this draft class is DaRick Rogers- so long as he interviews well.
