I'm going to suggest a different double up.. one of a geographic varierty...
Jordan from Oregon in the 1st & Wheaton (WR Ore St) w/ Miami's 2b.
Early April Mock Draft rd player pos school 1 Hageman DL Minnesota 2 Ja'Waun James RT Tennessee 3 West RB Towson 4 Gilmore TE Colorado St 5 T Turner OG LSU 6 Morris ILB Iowa 7 K Smith WR Washington
As far as DE goes, Dion Jordan reminds me of JPP but w/ more significant playing time in college against better competition.
Here is a thought for TE... Eifert in the 1st & Dion Sims (Mich State) in the 3rd or 4th. I'll give Kyle Miller the benefit of the doubt. Mastrud? really?
I wouldn't mind seeing a trade down to grab Eifert while picking up a 3rd in the process.
Can anyone care to share how Eifert might compare to Coby Fleener who came out last year?
I like Eifert...but id be looking at Keller and Cook in FA as well. Also in the draft...Im pretty high on Fauria. I don't think he is as polished as Eifert...but the guy is a absolute monster in the redone and we need help there BAD.
In terms of doubling up; I'm a sucker for corners, so if we're picking in the 5-10 range (possible), I'd like to see Milliner as a possible pick. Then maybe follow him up with Darius Slay from Miss St in the 4th (hoping to see him in person in the Gator Bowl, so we'll see how I feel about him after that). Then at TE, I definitely would like to see an early 2nd round pick on Fauria or another comparable TE. Maybe a later pick on Lutzenkirchen or possibly Mychal Rivera out of Tennessee (although I don't know if he's too Charles Clay-ish). We'll see, just my preliminary musings.
My dream would be to triple up with Hunter/Patterson/Rogers lol.
If Eifert is gone, who would be your preference at TE, Fauria or Ertz?
I've see Ertz projected in the second and Fauria as low as the 4th or 5th? Does that seem right?
We def need a TE, either draft in round 2-3 (unless we can pull a trade down in 1st for eifert), or the draft.
Don't think we need to jump the gun and double
Up at the TE position. We need to give Egnew another year, but a starter who can bust the seam and/or one with height to catch the rock in the redone/endzone is crucial.
