I would be stunned if Ballard doesn’t take a TE before round 4. Like a poster stated earlier Ballard and Reich love TE’s. I also wouldn’t be surprised at all if we draft Hockenson if he’s available in the first. He’s one of the very few 1st round offensive players I grade as a pro bowl type player. He’d come into the league as already one of the best blocking TE’s in the league.
I agree with most of this. I do think the sample is too small to make any definitive statements about his tendencies, yet. And I do agree that CB is more important than what fans here seem to be giving it credit for.
