    Let’s slow down on comparing him to Travis Kelce. Dude hasn’t taken a snap at an NFL level yet. A lot changes from college to NFL, regardless of where you’re projected. 

    Dude imagine Julio getting his hands on this dude and teaching him to run routes? If Julio can groom him as a route runner he could become an elite receiving TE early in his career.

    Not that I agree with that draft--at all. But you don't think we need a tight end? AS loves 2 TE sets and we need a second to Hurst than is better than what we got now

    I don’t why OP would get so upset at...

     

    Look, all I will say is this... OP and a LOT of other people on here undervalue the TE position and that’s fine. But, Kyle Pitts is potentially the Megatron of TE’s as a prospect; A once in a generation freak that if paired with a Matt Ryan? Won’t fail, and even beyond Matt Ryan, ensures that we will have a weapon that ALL ANALYSTS AND COORDS CONSIDER A SAFTEY BLANKET FOR young QB’s. This isn’t the last draft to get a QB like Fields or someone that would be undoubtedly better in the next draft.

    But you may not see a TE like Pitts for a long time.

    Dukes asked about Justin Fields. At first he said, we had a call with the local high school than he backed tracked and said, well we reached out to a couple of local hight schools. Says, he and his wife loves High Football. It's on the 92.9 the Game website, go listen if you want 

    I love High Football too. If Dey draft Fields at fo’ den Dey REALLY love High Football fa sho’.

  4. This isn’t too bold, because honestly it would be the logical pick. I worry about his short arms tho; recent history says that he will struggle to anchor against bull rushers because of his arms like Jake Matthews and Jonah Williams in Cincy. I would love to have an all-pro caliber tackle because that would add a year or two to Matt Ryan’s career. We must fortify the trenches if we are to do anything going forward.

    Easily, it was Jimmy Williams for me. I had strong connections with the coaches and program back then, so I got to see a lot more of Jimmy and other Hokies players than just about anyone besides the coaching staff. I really thought he was going to be a shutdown corner for us and I thought he would be a steal where we selected him.

    I was also quite possibly the biggest Vick homer around here. Even though Vick was a good player, he didn't reach the levels that I thought his athletic abilities suggested. He really was a generational type of athlete. 

    Crazy how I thought Jimmy would be “Richard Sherman” before Richard Sherman... Skill-Set was off the charts. I have no clue why he never developed...

    Haha, I still haven't given up on Ito. He feels kind of like pre-Shanny Freeman to me.

    I'm not saying he's an all pro but possibly a great 1b back like Coleman was here. He just needs to stay healthy. 

    Ito Smith is one of the best between the tackle RB’s I’ve honestly seen in a while. He shifts and finds holes that neither Gurley nor Brian Hill see. People so obsessed with Hill’s effort they don’t see who’s the most talented of the two and what upsets me is that due to some type of vanity about size (Ito is a smaller back) they would rather Gurley and Hill get all the carries when Ito has made something out of nothing more times than Hill and Gurley.

    Ugh. Falcons timing. A guy who could literally fix our pass rush problems (and other issues) on defense from day one, and we have no money to go after him. smh...

    I felt if we had Wade Phillips as D Coordinator the we could’ve had a real shot. But honestly he may wait till closer to training camp to sign with a team.

    With the 4th overall pick in the draft it would be malpractice for them not to attend his throwing session, even if they have no intention of drafting him. 
     

    Silly to try and read something into it other than them doing their job.

    I know right?

    Look at it this way, if Trevor Lawrence kills it? There is no way the Jags will trade the number 1 pick. It would take literal Football Jesus coming out of his tomb with Brett Farve’s Arm, Peyton Manning’s brain, Mike Vick’s scramble ability along with Cam Newton’s size/measurables declaring for the draft to not take Lawrence number one. Even then, Jets would take him number two lmao.

    Pitts isn’t a TE really. He is just a big WR. He can’t block.

    I think me and you discussed this before lol. It’s a weakness but it’s not a deficiency to where he is straight up incapable of blocking. I’m not expecting him to be a Toilolo in that regard.

    Team sources say Pitts is not a good blocker, but he is not bad and willingly contributes. Pitts fights and gives a good effort. Not having the desire to block is a common issue for receiving tight ends, but Pitts does not fall into the trap. While he is not a forceful blocker, Pitts is actually tries and does not take plays off.”

    The Saints defense had two 8+ sack games against Matt Ryan the last 2 seasons. I would imagine Terry Fontenont coming from the Saints organization probably is under the impression our offensive line is a problem. Watching the Bucs d line in the super bowl will only reenforce the importance of fixing our offensive line. Not to mention Arthur Smith is a former offensive lineman and understands the importance of a good offensive line. 

    I said if Sewell isn’t available I would take Pitts but if Sewell is there? You take him. I just hope the Dolphins don’t fall in love with him because I see them either taking him or a WR.

    I would be interested to see how well Tom Brady would do with Dirk Koetter as offensive coordinator. He might make Dirk Koetter look like a genius but who knows.

    He would cuss Dirk out everyday lol and Tom would tell HIM how to formulate the game plan. Dirk would straight up have to scrap 40% of his playbook. Tom is an alpha dog and him bringing a Super Bowl to Tampa his first year tells you his winning mentality separates him.

  12. I've spoken about this 100 times so I won't go in depth.

     

    Matt needs to stop being an extension of the coach and make the coach an extension of him. Yes we can win with Matt Ryan but this has always been a team game; Get the surrounding pieces so we won't need Matt to perform at MVP level to win. Tom Brady had some piss poor performances this season but when they gave him the keys he made sure he won when it mattered.

     

    That is all.

  13. Man, seeing this again is deeply saddening because my mother passed away last August from Frontal Lobe Dementia. They placed her on Hospice at the beginning of last year and only gave her a week or two to live but she made it all the way to 8 months and hospice was amazed/puzzled  at how long she held on. Man this has me in tears because I’m thinking maybe the family didn’t expect him to leave this quickly but my condolences to his family and loved ones because it’s painful seeing someone you care about go thru this illness.

    Doesn't mean he was a bad blocker, regardless of how much effort you feel he's putting in. But for what it's worth Hooper's never had an effort issue. 4 plays over the course of his whole career doesn't change that. And I'm always the guy who writes a player off if they don't give good effort. It's why I never wanted Vic.

    It’s still subjective tho. If he misses a block and he tried to keep someone in front? This isn’t even an issue. If you feel he was adequate, that is fine. But I’m not invalidating your opinion. I felt he was a garbage blocker due to lack of effort on plays. I know where you stand so I won’t go against it.

    I mean, I guess we have to agree to disagree because it’s subjective at the end of the day. You think he was adequate enough and that’s fine. I thought he displayed more of a passion for receiving than blocking. Either way he’s gone now.
