    Sefarin-Jenkins had a stress fracture at the combine so he couldn't run and had to sit on pro day also. Now he is healed and these individual workouts are showing he is faster than most thought.

    He keeps putting up 4.56 type times and there is no way he makes it out of the first rd. This is a big guy with a big wing span who has soft hands and good body control.

    He just looks impressive on film. Serarin-Jenkins won the Mackey award not Ebron or Amaro.

    He plays like he's a 4.7-8 type guy cause he looks slow on film and struggles to separate.

    rumors are he interviewed poorly as well via walter

    He doesn't play at all like a guy with average speed. Water called him a matchup nightmare and I agree.

    He has the most upside of any TE and would be the most effective in the red zone.

    I agree he's a tough matchup due to his size. He looks slow on tape though and if you think he plays at all like a mid 4.55 guy you haven't watched enough. Ebron looks a million times faster.

    I don't get how Ebron is a glorified WR and Amaro and SFJ are not. None are any freaking good at blocking. You don't make guys like them block very often.

    I've watched Amaro. He's a reliable receiver and decent blocker but has very little big play ability. Xhrr is right. I was shocked to learn that Jenkins ran a 4.56 because he sure doesn't look like it on tape. Looks like a 4.7 guy to me but if he ran that time then maybe he's just faster than he looks.

    The other thing about him is that even in his highlight tapes I rarely see him breaking away from people after the catch or really creating dynamic runs. What he's is good at is giving his QB's a huge target they can't miss and hauling the ball in reliably. He'll be a good pro but he won't be the type of play maker we're looking for at 11. Ebron's highlights are full of big time catches and dynamic runs. People are looking for the next Tony Gonzalez not the next Marcedes Lewis.

    When reading shortbus opinion remember he thought Craig Stevens would be a stud and was a great draft pick.

    Says it all on racists opinion about tight ends

    Racist opinions? None of the guys we are talking about are white? Are you that much of an idiot? My gawd i must have really damaged you at one time. Yourt obsession is obvious.

    And yes i thought a 3rd rd pick for Stevens was a great value at the time. I was wrong which is unusual.
