    There seems to be different views on that. But I remember thinking he was a good blocker coming out of college. Hopefully it means we can consider more of a receiving centred TE like Fant, Sternberger or Oliver if we so wanted.

    Even with the signing of ASJ, I can see the Pats double-dipping at TE. Oliver could easily be one. So could Sterberger and Knox..

    I definitely think we double dip at TE/WR or both.

    Is Dax Raymond a poor man's Jace Sternberger?

    Maybe we'll use one of our 7th round picks on this AJ Derby-like prospect from Maine, TE Drew Belcher.

    Former quarterback flourishes in second season as UMaine H-back

    I wouldn't mind drafting him in the later rounds.

    Different players imo. Raymond is that tough nosed, older, dirty work type. l
    Low ceiling player w decent athleticism.

    Strenberger puts some pressure on w/e is defending him. Might runs as good a seem route as there is in this class. Looks like a big WR.

    Personally, I'd rather have a TE who could start if ASJ were injured.

    I would hope that we have enough targets with 3 WR's, 3 RB's and ASJ. The # 2 TE could be primarily a receiver with weak blocking skills, but that wouldn't be my choice.
    ====
    As an aside, the #3 TE could be primarily a receiver, but that matters little to me, since he'd be inactive unless he were a top STer.

    I’d rather have an all-rounder too but those are limited. Give me Dawson Knox or Drew Sample and I’d be perfectly happy.

    Knox is hugely underrated, whoever picks him up could be getting a gem. He played in that ole miss team and lets face it - DK, AJ, Lodge.. that’s a nasty WR core.

    I think that they double dip at TE AND triple dip at WR. Been saying this for the past few weeks..

    Future Patriot?

    I am not alone in thinking this mini Gronk is under appreciated. Yeah, i can’t help myself in screaming CJ Conrad’s name from the rooftop.

    He’s a Wildcat, Baby!
    That way, if i’m right, I can buy his jersey. Conrad sounds cool.

    Dax Raymond is going late third early fourth. A blocking TE with that speed is a valuable commodity. And he speaks Russian.

    He was solid last year, last year was his only good tape of blocking...seems to be solid
    With ASJ in the picture, at east 1 TE is still needed (I prefer 2), while at least 2 WRs are needed (I prefer 3)

    Doesn’t Conrad have a huge health problem that kept him out of the combine and his pro day?

    Why isn't he getting more hype?

    Because he doesn't merit much more hype than what he's already receiving. In this draft, he's a 7th round/Priority FA player with health issues who would be an OK-I-guess choice as TE #2 in a double-dip.

    Notable C.J. Conrad fact: his arms are the same length as Phillip Dorsett's.
