    Pinkney is hopefully available for us in the third round. Last year he was ranked as high as a second-rounder before his disastrous decline in production during his senior season at Vandy. New OC.

    Don't know if I'd use even one of our 3rds on Pinkney right now...I'm really really hoping that Trautman or one of the Bryants is still available there.

    Favorite TE in the draft. Just a mismatch nightmare for defenders. Big, fast, strong. Just a monster. He reminds me of a combo of Noah Fant (faster) & TJ Hockenson. If we can get him in the 3rd round and another one later in the 3rd round, this offense can be tough to stop. It was always at its most unstoppable the last 8-10 years when we had 2 TEs that can catch the ball. The Gronk/Hernandez years, 8 games of Gronk/Bennett.

    Get Albert O and Trautman or some other TE who can catch the ball, and watch out.

    Much Bigger than Hernandez, AND faster.

    Crazy pro day for TE Eli Wolf from Georgia. Eye popping 40, ran a 4.43 (hand timed), 6.72 3 cone and 35 vertical at 6’4 1/2 245. Not known as a good TE prospect, they barely ever threw him the ball. Still crazy numbers nonetheless, very explosive numbers. I did notice him at the Senior Bowl. I think he caught more passes there than all season at Georgia.

    Besides that excellent 40-yard time, he didn't do anything else at the combine, and unfortunately his pro day was cancelled...I want to see a complete on-field workout before investing even a 3rd-rounder on him...Otherwise he's a Day 3 guy to me...

    There are, according to Walter Football, some "character issues" with Okwuegbunam. Otherwise, they think he'd be a round 1-2 level prospect. That's a bit of a risk without a field general like Brady at QB, but there are numerous veterans with SB hardware and leadership skills to keep a rookie like him in check.

    Of course, Belichick watches my posts closely and has never ever picked anybody I liked, ever. So Coach, whatever you do, do not pick Albert Okwuegbunam, okay?

    A cursory google search had me unable to find any other sources questioning his character, so I think Walter might be talking out of his ass like he tends to do sometimes.

    I don't think he has character issues such as off-field trouble (drugs, violence etc)...I think that some people just aren't sure about his commitment to football as a full-time job...We'll have enough problems fielding a competitive team next season without having to worry about motivating the players that are here...

    I did see some talk of effort/breezing by on talent, which probably wouldn't fly here. I've just always considered character and effort two different concerns, since you have guys like Antonio Brown who clearly have problems with the former but clearly don't have problems with the latter.

    Interestingly, effort issues seem to be a much bigger dealbreaker to football operations than character issues.

    Yep, Harrison Bryant is my #3 TE behind Cole Kmet & Adam Trautman...If he's still on the board at 87 and the latter two are not, then I'm running to the podium with his name on it (unless WRs Michael Pittman & Chase Claypool are there too)...
