    Iím in the TE is a huge need camp.

    We do not have a TE that can block on the roster. A versatile TE is the next most valuable position on O after QB imho.

    Our priority was fixing the running...

    Thats a real issue. Not sure exactly how you fix it because you still need to throw the ball early.

    Maybe less predictability and offensive play calling are the key to help overcome.

    Interesting stat on the 35+ attempts, but that’s just looking back on the game saying we had to play catch up which probably is the reason we lose those games and the 35+ passes doesn’t mean too...

    I think a lot of what AV said was in jest and the reports take his intent out of context. He’s friends with all the guys he was poking.

    I agree and love the Pat pick. I always want a multi dimensional TE and other than QB, think the TE has the next biggest impact on the O and passing and running game.

    I read it as those were the avg grades immediately following the draft.

    So the point is wether good or bad, the pundits generally grade all the drafts the same.

    Trading a QB on a minimal contract for a 5th round pick likely means neither side values the player that much.

    If there was minimal belief in Dobbs, I donít see the team trading him at all.

    I’m sure Billy is ahead of the curve thinking of ways to push the envelope.

    And Brady seemed to be fine without them both.

    I might argue we got the #1 TE this year.
