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.

    • Keep in mind too, the more wins from here on out, will only increase the odds keeping Pagano.         
    • I watch them a bit. I can certainly concede that Hill is the most talented of the three and may be better than I gave him credit for in my post...   Hunt is not that great, imo. He has had a very good season, especially for a rookie, but I think he has overachieved quite a bit. He doesn't have the elite power/speed combo of guys like Fournette or Zeke. I think he's an average (or slightly above) running back in a very good situation. I don't think he would be rated so highly if he ran for Cleveland or Indy.   Just my opinion, though. I'm not married to it, either... I'm sure I've made many foolish statements about young players in the past.    I was just trying to illustrate that the OC in KC (is his name Nagy?) is part of an offense that is playing better than the sum of its parts. How much of that can be attributed to him and how much is Andy Reid is a fair question, though. New HC candidates are always a gamble, though. 
    • Whichever NFC team that has the best interior pass rush will have the best chance to beat the Pats.  It's their Achilles heel.  
    •   I am NOT a fan of tanking.   I argued on behalf of trying to win the last two games of both the 15 and 16 seasons.    The argument was we had a chance to go 8-8 so you absolutely try to win those games.     5 straight seasons without a losing season is a good achievement for any franchise.   But now that we are overwhelmingly likely to finish below 500,  then I feel free to say that while I don't want us to tank,  I will not be upset with any loss.     Even if we lose them all.      I know this is a nuanced position,   but I won't be upset with any losses in the last six games.   All that said....   We stand a decent chance to win a number of these games.     Only the J'Ville game feels like a likely loss.   The other five feels like we've got a decent shot at each.   We should be competitive in those five games.    So, we might surprise to the upside and win more than we might expect.     The team is playing better.   By group,  the defense is getting better,   the special teams are solid,  and even the offense is a little more cohesive and efficeint.     And each unit might get a little better down the stretch.   We might surprise a lot of people,  including ourselves.
