    The better he runs, the more money he makes. There will be some good TE's running in the 4.7 range. He needs to run in the 4.5 and 4.6 range to jump up the draft boards.

    I'll take 4.7 if there's some extra wiggle. :D

    I wouldn't mind if he waited around until the 3rd or 4th round... I'd say high 4.6's is where he will fall.

    Don't we usually take smaller tight ends?

    Another thing that I don't get about BB...we've taken two big TEs in the first round and then after that, when we take project types like David Thomas and Garrett Mills, they are small.

    Daniel Graham wasn't small for sure... Kyle Brady (FA) and Chris Baker (FA) weren't draft picks, but were pretty big.

    As a cyclone fan living in Iowa City, I have had to watch the guy for longer than I care to remember. He is a fantastic pass catcher and seems to be able to get open all the time(very frustrating when you are cheering for the other team). He is also an above average blocker that seems to get satisfaction out of doing so. His big problem is staying healthy. He plays hard and it has resulted in some injuries. I love him in the 4th because of the injury concerns.

    Not sure where you get that the David Thomas is small at 6'3.125". Garrett Mills was shorter, but was expected to be an H-back, not a TE..

    Also, I think you missed Andrew Stokes who was a project TE who was 6'4.

    I want Moeaki or Peek 5th round! We need a real TE. Please dump Ben "Stone Hands" Watson!

    Wasn't Moaki injured most of his five years at Iowa? I wouldn't think you got to see too much of him.

    Don't sleep on the kid from Stanford. He can block in space and that can be a huge factor in helping a RB.

    How these guys run, will be huge in determining where they are picked.

    Tony wasn't injured the whole time, but he did miss a couple of games a year. (at least) He's all healed up right now though.

    Unfortunately, he usually didn't get hurt until after the cyclone/hawkeye game. Like I said, that is his big concern and why he will be available later than his talent would dictate.

    Isn't this Watson's M.O. to be injured a lot and miss 1 or 2 games a year?

    The kid from Pittsburgh might be in the low 4.4s.

    Dickerson? Yeah, he's trying to make it as a WR though.

    But can he block? BB once said "big guys that can run fast"

    If Bynum also from Pittsburgh proves on tape that he can block, he might make an interesting prospect.

    Dickerson is listed as a FB/H-Back/WR by NFLDraftSCout.com. Which I found interesting. They also projected him at the mid 4.5 for his fastest time. Not that it means anything..

    The Combine is going to be an interesting and fun time.

    I've learned that the Patriots have scheduled a private workout with Tony Moeaki on Monday, March 15th, and will attend his pro-day at Iowa.

    Tony Moeaki was labeled as (one of) the best blocking tight ends in college football and I'm surprised that ESPN Insider failed to mention him in their "Blocking TE" article today. If in fact he is the best blocking tight end in college football, I think the Pats found their guy!

    -------------------------

    Scouts Inc.: Alabama Crimson Tide TE Colin Peek leads the late-round values at his position - ESPN

    "Blocking TEs Offer Late-Round Value"

    1. Colin Peek, 2. Mike Hoomanawanui, and 3. Nate Byham

    -------------------------

    "He might be the best blocking tight end in the nation. Possesses the athleticism to quickly get into blocks Moeaki exhibits impressive natural power and leverage on contact and is a bear to disengage from. Has the lower body strength to consistently win at the point of attack and possesses ideal technique and hand placement. Has the ability to eventually win a starting tight end spot on an NFL roster because of his ability to block and contribute in the pass game. Can win battles in both the run and pass game."
