Patriots traded 7th rounder to falcons for TE Eric Saubert
I think we can all expect a long and fruitful season from this young lad.
Or LaCosse is more hurt than we hoped.
Thats my fear.
LaCosse is not a world-beater but at least he is a legitimate target in the passing game.
"Tape study is absolutely maddening on Saubert as it roller coasters from eye-popping potential to lapses in concentration and effort as a blocker. Saubert's speed and athleticism will get him open and he should test well at the combine. Teams will have to balance the flashes with the drops and decide how early they want to pull the trigger on a tight end with starter's potential but a low floor." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
True which is far worse.
Meets the athletics requirements.
6-5, 254 pounds, 4.69 40-yard. Did well at the 2017 Combine.
Drafted in fifth round of the 2017 draft. Only five receptions with the Falcons.

The Falcoholic’s 2018 Falcons positional review: Tight end
Had a sweet career at Drake.
The Pats averaged 400 yards of offense & scored 34 & 31 points respectively (albeit some ST help) vs. the Bears/Packers with 1 reception from a TE (Gronk inactive).
TE is looking like a potential disaster until week 5 but is not necessary to run the offense. Start Izzo as a 6th blocker in Dwayne Allen’s role until Watson is back. Gordon returning would go a long way as well.
Guessing this trade means LaCosse will be out an extended time.
I remember a few years back from his Draft Bio I stopped reading from right here " Tapes littered with drops" yuck.
If he can make the catch that bounced off Izzo's hands at the goal line...YAY! Stidham should have had another TD pass there.
He is a really talented guy who was behind Hooper on a team that was in a 3 WR set most of the time. He has a ton of upside with the right coaching, but at the very least he is an upgrade over Izzo.
Maybe being signed as a blocking TE ?
If that report of good blocking is correct, Izzo is definitely screwed.
I have no idea who he is therefore he's the best TE available in the team already
Mic'd Up: TE Eric Saubert
