Mike Mayock ( highly regarded evaluator ) rates him the fourth best TE in the draft. So he must be pretty good. PFW fourth round value.
Just sayin' for what it is worth.

If there isn't going to be a season, there's not much point in talking about the draft.

This labor dispute is going to get worse before it gets better, and with the NBA and MLB labor contracts also up, fans are going to have a lot of free time.
