    Eh, the later you pick in the 1st round, any position other than kicker and long snapper is defensible. I typically am against TE in the 1st round though. They always take a year or two to develop, even the good ones.

    Agreed - analysts who throw that phrase around are disguising the fact that they have NO CLUE where they'd fit in best... so they're aiming high.


    Olave would be a great slot wide receiver target - probably is mid 20's pick.

    Yup. OJ Howard sure worked out for the Bucs at 19, TJ Hockenson in the Top 10 is sure lighting it up for DET, and this year's TE who was way too highly ranked, Pitts, will fall in that same line. Falcons botched a Top 5 pick, like we did a WR.

    I agree it's gonna be hard for Pitts to ever live up to a top 5 pick at the position he plays but comparing him to OJ Howard or TJ Hockenson isn't fair to Pitts. The guy was a man among boys in the SEC...

    Just to compare stats wise between the 3 in their final college season

    Hockenson: 13 games 49 receptions 760 yards 7 TD's

    Howard: 15 games 45 receptions 595 yards 3 TD's

    Pitts: 8 games 43 receptions 770 yards 12 TD's

    In order to live up to the top 5 billing, Pitts is gonna have to be prime Gronk/Jimmy Graham. They had the opportunity to draft Jamaar Chase who many believe a Julio clone and went with a TE instead.

    From that original list Chris Olave is the only name I recognized; will have to start studying…

    Olave was looking like a solid #2 WR option on a team before he got out of the 2021 draft.

    With both Evans and Brown’s contracts ending after this season we definitely need to consider ILB round 1.
