George Kittle, Tight End, Iowa - Sleeper Alert


Recommended Posts

The more I watch him; the more impressed I get. Would be a nice way to use one of those fourth round picks.

Keep an eye on #46 (bottom of the screen) and check out his textbook block:

 

 

Looks like some Dallas Clark old film, but nope it is Kittle:

 

 

He is fast like Dallas was too.

 

 

Big target in the end zone.

 

 

And this cat can catch the ball:

Kittle is a beast. I have no idea how he is still going unnoticed 

 

Amazing how some of these tight ends and bigger receivers get overlooked because they're in a running scheme.

 

I read Kittle had only 1 drop to 48 receptions. We could use those odds on this team. 

 

If we drafted Kittle in the fourth round then we would basically be trading Allen straight up for him.

Kittle being taken so late proves, once again, that third day picks matter. Getting extra picks in rounds 4-6, and then using them to move up to grab a particular prospect (a practice at which Ballard is a master), can pay off in the right hands.

I think Kittle went at the top of the 5th.   Imagine how many teams are kicking themselves for passing on him so many times?!    


Hindsight is always 20/20.


Not hindsight, when I posted this thread a month before the 2017 Draft. 
 

The word you’re looking for is foresight.

I wasn’t talking about you.   I was talking about everyone else.  All the other teams that passed on Kittle for four full rounds until he was taken near the top of the fifth round. 
 

Props to you for getting Kittle right back in real time!       :thmup:
