TE Possibilities, FA/Draft?

This may have been talked about before, but I just saw an interesting pickup we could make if we don't get one of the better TE in the draft develop, how about this guy?

Raiders waived TE Clive Walford.
A formerly buzzed about third-rounder, Walford's career was derailed by a 2016 ATV accident. He caught just nine passes in 13 games last season, falling behind Jared Cook and Lee Smith on the depth chart before a concussion landed him on injured reserve in December. Going on 27, Walford and his intriguing skill-set will still earn a second look, perhaps even on waivers

Who are your dream options behind Gronk for the present and the future?

I like Dallas Goedert if he falls a bit in the draft.

Goedert might get overdrafted because of his upside and has maybe further to go to contribute in our offense than Hayden Hurst, who I like best or Mark Andrews, but I think the TEs seem to be a little undersold this spring. Goedert is probably out of reach.

My eyeballs think Hurst has the body, control and hand skills to be really good and I'd like to see us land him. I know he's not reputed to be much of a blocker, but he certainly looks like he could be one if Dante yells at him a few times.

If those guys are gone I wouldn't mind seeing UMass' Adam Brenerman as a late round selection or FA. He's raw, but catches the ball extremely well and could be a good project guy.

I'm not enamored with any of the FAs or the draftees to tell the truth (what happened to TEs who can block?) .
Breneman is as good a choice as any.

FAs - Ben Watson or Daniel Fells

Would rather BB focus on a LT or DT/LB before even thinking about a TE.

Whispers (Unless Gronk retires then )

TE has morphed over the years.

The true match up nightmares are more glorified WRs. Gronk is unique in that he is such a ferocious blocker. But is that tradeoff worth it?

Gronk takes a beating on his receiving already. His injury history shows that.

Do we really want the added wear and tear on him being the full time in line blocker? I don’t. Where are the days of the pizza paddled massive blockers you could score in the 6-7th or UDFA? Or a T conversion from TE in college who just doesn’t quite have enough to be T in the pros? Use them for the blocking. Keep Gronks mileage to his sensational playmaking ability.

Maybe I'm just being nostalgic, but I'd love to see Watson back in Foxboro. He has definitely gooten over his stone-hands problem. Great locker room guy, too.

One of the craziest things that I've seen following the draft for many years.

Will Dissly TE Washington is ranked at the bottom of most draft rankings. Athlons guide lists him 24th of the TE's.

Yet, Mike Mayock lists him the 5th best TE in this years draft.

That's a pretty extreme difference, but not all that unusual.

There are always a couple of guys that don't even make the top, say, 24 that get drafted fairly high and often by us. Jonathan Richards, for instance. Tavon Wilson was another that was barely mentioned. Nate Ebner was nowhere, nor was Joe Cardona. Elandon Roberts. Bunches of them.

One thing you can count on every year is that the early impressions from various sources seem to get passed around and almost become accepted common knowledge and about 10 days before the draft you get a lot of late info from rumors that stream in right up until the opening bell and all of a sudden everything gets shaken up. For instance, a guy mentioned as a top ten possibility drops way down. This year it could be Josh Allen. Kyle Lauletta could very well end up as a first-rounder. That's why it's fun.

The beauty about life behind Bill's Iron Curtain is that nobody ever knows what we are thinking until about 48 hours AFTER the draft.
