    the guy Blast mentioned, Jake Butt Michigan, looks like a runaway train. He comes out next year though. If they don't pick up another this year and Spaeth goes elsewhere, he may be a stud pickup but that's next year...

    Persistence lol!

    CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang noted that Montana State TE Beau Sandland offers a "prototypical blend of size, strength and athleticism."

    "What Sandland lacks in polish," Rang wrote, "he makes up for with potential, with scouts intrigued by his country-strong frame (including 34 1/4-inch arms), soft hands and experience as an in-line blocker." The analyst does have questions about the 6-foot-4, 253-pounder's overall lack of continuity, though, as Sandland began his collegiate career with two years at JUCO program Pierce College, then transferred to Miami, then transferred yet again to close out his career with Montana State. Despite that somewhat rocky path on the way to the draft, he makes for an interesting upside tight end for the sixth or seventh round.

    Now listen turtle if your gonna pimp your guy I am going to have to pimp mine, lmao.......:cool:

    Tyler Higbee 6-6 249,

    CBS Sports says this:

    IN OUR VIEW: This is a nice looking tight end prospect who has worked hard to put himself in this position, especially after making the position change. Along the way, Higbee has added 60 pounds. He's athletic and versatile and in the right offensive system Higbee could really be a nice weapon in the NFL because he's a guy that can be good in the run game and evolve into a tight end that work the middle of the field in the passing game and become a real threat.

    Dang, you're boy got arrested. 2nd degree assault, 2nd degree evading police and alcohol intoxication. This weekend. Tough hit to overcome so close to draft time.

    I like Nick Vannett senior OSU 6-6 257 because he is a solid blocker, and can catch the ball but wasnt used much as a receiver in urban myers offense, a projected mid rounder, if he is there on the board as a late 3rd round or 4th round, he is worth that pick.....

    I've been hearing lately about a sleeper TE in the draft.

    Matt Weiser from Buffalo.

    Apparently he was productive... second most receptions by TE this year...
    He has good size, and can both Catch and Block.

    Anyone know anything about him?

    CBS Sport Com has him ranked 21 out of their top 25 TEs and is projected to be an undrafted free agent on their board, pro football focus had this to say about him:

    Biggest concern:
    • Slow, slow, slow. No speed to separate past linebackers. Underneath guy.

    • Body control is iffy. Very rigid in his routes. Can get stuck on a good jam.

    • Little burst in and out of breaks. Needs to learn to use his leverage.

    Bottom line:
    Weiser is a developmental prospect who has to improve on his routes to hack it in the league. His abilities at the catch point make him valuable towards the end of the draft.
