BRO does he not look like R Kelly? (The singer guy not the Centre).

Would still like to grab TE OJ Howard out of Alabama in the draft, though.

No thanks, don't want to spend a high pick on someone like him or Njoku when we have glaring needs elsewhere and Doyle and Swoope are fine.

Doyle and Swoope are our guys at TE. You need a 3rd TE, preferably a blocking TE. Williams may not even make the roster IDK. But he's fine as a 3rd TE. Doyle and Swoope will probably put up around 500-600 yards a piece with 5-10 TD's a piece. Eric Swoope will be one of the biggest breakout players in the NFL this coming season bet on it. I absolutely love what we have with him and Doyle. Just need Haeg to become a monster RG, Clark or Good one to be serviceable at RT, and Moncrief to stay healthy and out offense is gonna be top 5. Moncrief is a star in the making once he stays healthy and plays a full season. Good luck covering TY, Moncrief, Doyle, and Swoop.

This signing is the first that doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I'd much rather draft a TE later in the draft (rounds 5-7) in a loaded class than sign someone with hardly any production. 

 

 Can`t wait to see who we draft in the 6th and 7th.
 Again you post without knowing what the guy is being brought in to do.

I suspect he's a blocking type of TE

When we traded DA, we needed a blocking TE and a Tackle. Gotta get a blocker, somewhere!

We're having open tryouts at camp, apparently.  

Yes.  I signed up for the group Sunday matinee tryout.  It's me, a 10 year old and her grandmother.

The problem with that is you know he isn't a pass option so the defense has an advantage.  He needs to catch the football.

We will.  Competition for Swoope and Williams

Indy has no 6th or 7th round pick in this draft....

we needed a blocking TE to compliment doyle and swoop

 

i think swoop is a break out candidate too, like doyle was last year

 

we could have one receiving specialist in swoop, one hybrid in doyle and a blocking specialist in williams

Ran a 4.56 tho:thmup:

If he can stay healthy I think he has all the tools to be a nice compliment to Doyle and Swoopes. Swoopes with the finesse, Doyle with the versatility, and Williams with the physicality. I wanted to draft a TE and this guy has no receiving production, but F it I love his potential he's my new favorite for that 3rd spot we don't need to draft one unless the value is too good to pass.

The  naïve part of me was hoping he would fall to 2nd or 3rd round. But  realistically, I know that's not gonna happen.

Another guy with potential ran a 4.56 runs clean routes works hard is nasty in the blocking game and is a handful to bring down prototype for the Air Coryell also plays SP teams . Hasn't produced in the NFL but if any of this is true sounds like a guy to give a shot .

Aside from RB, you really don't want to spend any draft picks on offensive players. A guard maybe, but the holes on D are so bad that you want to devote as many picks as possible to D. We need like 2 ILBs,2-3 CBs, a NT, and a FS. Probably a 5-tech as well. I wouldn't mind taking a George Kittle in the 4th, but the more picks that go to defense the better.

I have a feeling the Giants will take one of them in the first. Dolphins got their guy or else I would have thought maybe they'd go Njoku

I'm glad we have someone who can block.  Somebody has too.  If he is above average blocking and dyle is at least average, when we line up in two TE, we can put a hurting on those backers.  It is also the easiest formation for the OL.  They can pin their ears back and move the line of scrimmage.  I know running is old school, but here is hoping.

So wth are we visiting with Mychal Rivera now? Someone start that thread im too lazy. But still F Mychal Rivera man why go after a 4th TE and not follow up with Zach Brown if he doesn't sign with Miami. What a waste of money if Rivera signs here

Maybe, Greg Olsen is 32 but he is still one of the best

This type of player could have been  drafted late or picked off from waiver wires. Don't give me blocking TE. That's problem in NFL world today, no complete players. You have to get a catching TE and Blocking TE.

    • If you don't think Chuck has had his hands tied because of more than a couple of things I think you need to look closer. No QB, no running game, injuries and rookies. Lack of talent at key positions. You cant make adjustments when you are limited to the players available with the talent to make it happen. All Chuck has been able to do is keep what talent he does have on the field. He don't have the depth to be creative.
    • I've cooled off on Harbaugh.   He hasn't really impressed at Michigan as of late.  He doesn't really ingratiate himself well over time.  I don't expect him to be available anyway.   I also don't want Gruden.  Not impressed by his tenure in Tampa Bay and the deterioration of that defense under his watch.  That Super Bowl trophy he has was with Dungy's team.  The longer Gruden coached there the worse Tampa got.   I trust Ballard to evaluate what's out there and bring in the kind of coach that he wants. Maybe someone he knows from his tenure in Kansas City or Green Bay.  I don't think it has to be a big name for a big name's sake.   If it is, then it will most likely have Irsay's footprints all over it not Ballard's.
    • Well then, let me clarify. I'd like to see a new HC who is a proven creative offensive expert and who brings in a top DC to run that side of the operation. As for Chuck having two hands tied behind his back, I'd disagree. His bad decision making and inability to adapt at halftime are infamous by now and need no further discussion. Luck or no Luck, Pagano has caused his own demise. I'm looking forward to a fresh start with a new coaching staff. Can't happen soon enough. 
    • I was talking about the Arian's offense and how it is detrimental to the health of QBs.
    •   This is so well said....and in addition to all this, he was thrown in behind an O-line that was is complete disarray and  have only recently begun to not completely suck.....
