***OFFICIAL NFL DRAFT 2012 THREAD***

Recommended Posts

Get it through your skulls people Dwane allen and the rest of the TE are pure Garbage.

4.89 fourty hard dashes and either too skinny or non-traditional TE. Be happy we got Fleener and move on.

Well, we just took him

Trying to emulate the Patriots offense is a bad idea. Defenses will figure it out - it has no speed, no outside game, and struggles in the 2:00 drill.

We are blowing this draft, I like both Fleener and Allen but seriously both?? do we want to repeat not being able to stop the run?

It would work great with threats on the outside, but we only got one good WR in Reggie.

I know it's not a popular pick (and even I'm not too happy with it), but it seems like Allen has the potential to be a very good TE

That being said, I would have moved up to get Randle.

Exactly! we could have leaped Giants and maybe given up a 5th or 6th at most

surprised on this one.. would have preferred a CB, OG, WR or NT.. guess they are planning on doing 2 TE's sets.. or maybe they will be trading who knows would have preferred Evan Rodriques for the 2nd TE and he is also a fb

Folks... try to remember everything isn't getting fixed this weekend.

I wanted other players too.... but we've selected the best QB and the two highest rated TEs available.

Keep in mind we might be boosting Ta'amu because of need. He is only a run stopper; he doesn't do much for you in the passing game

With that said, other (arguably better) prospects were available

I think the colts are trying to recreate what Luck did at Stanford. People always see the passes, but the Cardinals did A LOT of POUND AND GROUND...and I mean A LOT.

Watch the entire USC vs Stanford game to see what I'm saying.

I dont' LIke Allen as a pick, but Allen AND Fleener are great blockers and If Brown focuses, he could be a 1000+ yard rusher next year. *If* that's what they are doing.

Allen is a round 2 pick that we got in the 3rd. Unlike Fleener, Allen is a complete TE and was the Mackey award Winner last year. I guess he was BPA according to Grigs. Now we have our two starting TEs. Before this draft we had Eldridge (who will now sit the bench because that's where he belongs).

and actually the needs we have all had starting Corners or Guards or Defensive Tackles or Linebackers all within our reach so alot could have been fixed in one draft, I honestly dont get that argument that you cant fix everything in one draft

Yep.... and they both have really good hands too.

Along that line of thinking.... I'm hoping we add an OG at some point.

Actually, both Allen and Fleener have been noted as needing improvement in their blocking

Because all 10 draft picks in one year never work out for any team. Ever.

As much as I dislike Allen, he does have great hands...just as good as Fleener. Fleener is a great blocker despite what analyst say and Allen is an even better blocker. I just don't like Allen's speed and he burst. He is always getting in the RB way when he pulls from the H-back position to block. (watch some vids) and I'm like, dude your a TE, Guards can even pull fast enough to stay out of the RB's way.

Hopefully they don't ask him to Pull much.

no but it was better then drafting a tight end two picks in a row although I really like Allen and like Fleener but I would drafted one or the other with our needs thats all Im saying
