TE has been moving up my “urgency” scale recently.
Thinking about past success of TEs here with Peyton and Luck, how Rivers had success with a pretty good one, and how much Reich talked about TE use when he first got here.
We let that TE go to washington last year, but he was more of a blocker anyway. Travis showed some playmaking ability, but never really took the next step.
Anyone think Claypool could be transitioned. I’d love to see a TE with some twitch and physicalness. I really like Allie-Cox, but if he or Doyle go down, we will be in a bad spot. This offense NEEDS a good TE, right?
I believe that we will pass on drafting a QB this year.... so that is how I voted.
Had we jettisoned Jacoby Brissett when we brought Rivers in... I’d have selected Gordon.... but we didn’t, so I think they’ll have their sights set on next year’s crop of QBs.
Knowing we had 41 sacks last year, anyone who thinks we don't get more with the addition of Buckner is swinging for a bunt, instead of the fences...... We've only lost Sheard thus far (4.5 sacks), and I'd expect Buckner to at least give us that +3 at minimum. I think using Autry more at DE will likely translate into him getting more as well.
