    Talked about this a few times & apparently some thought it was funny to actually know what you're talking about when he it comes to the game but what can you do?
    Anyway Brown does a vg job of beating his man using his stem/re-stem

    At first he takes his route inside towards the post, re-stems outside & cuts back inside to create space. Tyreek Hill is vg at this.

    He's shown everything in terms of skill set to at least make a case to move off the ball at the next level. Burst & moves are so effortlessly

    I like him as a move TE but, as a blocker, he'd have to improve a lot before I thought about a one to one swap with him and Gronk (assuming Gronk doesn't come back).

    That route gives me some flashbacks to Branch with the suddenness of the movement. Very clean. Love seeing that kind of separation.

    Thoughts on Keesean Johnson? I love this route, but I haven't seen many of his games.

    Love his toughness for a smaller guy in terms of weight. He's a scrappy player. I remember at the beginning of the year thinking woah this dude gone break Adam's record.

    Obviously great hands. Kind you can focus on to see a target, extension & strength.

    His routes are pretty on point imo. Knows when to turn on the speed on critical breaks or turns. Very smooth, effortless runner.

    Again I like his attitude. No fear, no back down.

    Yeah I hear that. He needs to come a long way there. Toughness, technique & effort have to improve there. And just to be clear I'm not saying he doesn't try or we but those have improve. He's a project there.

    VG size, speed once he gets going & some athletic ability. Project but he has the goods w some tlc.

    Yeah, that's why I said I would start him out as a move TE instead of a more in-line TE ala Gronk. Get him out in space and let him use his size against a corner or his athleticism against a LB. Let him cut his teeth there and work on his functional strength and blocking after that.

    Tommy Sweeney is a sneaky good TE. Great effort & fight in between the hashes & downfield if need be. Good job sustaining & fighting for position. Won't blow anyone away w a/a but he pick up those throw away yards & give a target in the RZ. Late Rd guy I wouldn't be surprised if he sticks bc of blocking alone.

    Cheevers is another BC guy that might go top 100. Big, physical, well rounded player.

    Should be a fantastic WR class. I imagine we'll go WR / TE fairly early this year, but it's tough to say before we see free agency. I'd love to see a legit young receiver developing behind Gordon and Edelman. We'll have a serious need there next season.

    I'm sure like you, I'm playing out different scenarios in my head.

    Rn I'm thinking IDL/Thompson early.

    Trade up for Fant/Hock if they're there late 1/early 2.

    Then go rush w the other 2. Maybe a Allen, Nelson (Any thoughts on him) if not wait later for a Zuniga type & take the best WR available.

    Have you checked out Leki Fotu yet? Big brick house from Utah? Dude has a motor & some athletic ability at 6'5/325. Typical space eater w some pocket push to his game. Can handle doubles. Usually guys his size will try to bully through everything but he'll slip through backside & cut right down the line. He should stay another year bc of the depth & frankly he's not quite where he needs to be but could be a steal mid-late if he does come out.

    Fan of all these guys. SAF, Box doesn't matter. All big time football guys that play w a ton passion. Throw Mike Edwards, Darnell Savage in there as well. Both versatile guys w attitude & juice.


    And if anyone hasn't watched Abram, please do. Intense player. Wants to separate ball from player. Definitely has some range though. Chung replacement material.
