We have seen the NFL kinda change over from these blocking tight ends to pass catching TEs...Tony Gonzalez, Jimmy Graham, Jordan Reed etc. Teams don't even bother using them on the line. They just put them in the slot or on the outside against man to man and burn lbs and smaller safeties all day with their size and speed. A play maker is a play maker..I don't care what the abbreviation of his position is. Ebron has been a disappointment but he has a couple things going for him. 1. Reich has had a ton of success utilizing TEs at his last couple stops. 2. Ebron is 24/25 very young and athletic. 3. Ebron was cut and thus does not factor into compensatory pick compensation. Which I think is obvious that Ballard is taking into consideration considering the level tier of guys he has been mostly interested in and the fact we lost Gore, Mewhort, Melvin, and Moncrief we could see maybe a middle round pick after its all said and done.
