    Our new TE Konrad Reuland ( 49ers& Stanford)

    49ers' Konrad Reuland happy his friend's in Indy
    As much as Konrad Reuland values his friendship with his former Stanford teammate, fellow tight end Coby Fleener, he also values his job.

    So, unlike a segment of the fan base, Reuland wasn't disappointed when the 49ers passed on the local star with the No. 30 pick in the NFL draft.

    Even without Fleener, who was selected 34th by the Colts, San Francisco is stocked with tight-end talent. Reuland is hoping to make the 53-man roster after spending last year's rookie season on the practice squad.

    "I love Coby," Reuland said. "He's a great guy and a good friend of mine. It would have been great having him on the team in that sense. But then again, this isn't Stanford. We have Vernon Davis, Delanie Walker, Nate Byham - all those guys to compete with as well. So it would have been a little more stress at the tight end position for everybody. ... I'm happy he's in Indianapolis, and I hope he does great."

    Reuland will battle Byham, who missed last year with an ACL injury, to be the No. 3 tight end. An undrafted free agent, Reuland earned his spot on the practice squad last year by flashing excellent hands and athleticism.

    Last summer, Jim Harbaugh said Reuland needed to add weight and improve his blocking skills. Reuland, 6-foot-4 and 260 pounds, has put on at least five pounds in the offseason.

    Another TE that can't block? Yet this team wants to be a physical run team.

  3. #3
    School: Stanford
    Position: TE

    Bio: Notre Dame transfer used as a part-time starter the past two seasons. Senior totals included 21/209/1 after 6/142 as a junior.

    Positive: Nice sized tight end who is best as a blocker. Quickly gets off the line, stays square, and is strong at the point of attack. Works to bend his knees, shows good vision, and stays with assignments. Blocks down well on opponents. Uses his hands to get separation from opponents and effectively adjusts to the errant throw catching the ball.

    Negative: Displays marginal quickness. Fights the ball and unnecessarily lets passes get inside him. Not fluid in his movements.

    Analysis: Reuland is a size prospect who could make a roster as a third tight end brought onto the field in short-yardage situations.

    Strengths: Big, tall tight end who uses his body well to wall off defenders on his routes to secure receptions. Looks the ball into his hands well. Locks onto defenders once he gets his hands on them. Good strength at the POA, as he can create lanes for the ball carrier to run through.

    Weaknesses: An adequate athlete, but he will struggle to separate in his routes and lacks the athleticism to go up and come down with the ball. Not much of a threat in the open field once he secures the ball.

    Projection: UDFA. Reuland's blocking skills could allow him to develop into an effective second or third TE at the next level."

    Because the OP's article says Jim Harbaugh told him he has to add weight and improve his blocking skills, they made it seem like he was a pass catching TE, even though he had little production in college as a pass catcher.

    Stanford was a physical run offense so when I first saw we signed him I figured he could block, the article says something different.

    I just want someone that can block, and catch. Should have good enough instincts to find a soft spot, use his body to box out, and catch the ball. Hopefully he is that guy.

    Wonderful, now please log of and find a new team to root for, but before you do, stop by Barnes and Nobles and pick up a copy of "Football for dummies."

    You're welcome.

    The article clearly says his blocking had to improve. It did not say he couldn't block. From what I read elsewhere his blocking was never an issue. He needed to get stronger and refine his blocking. And then I found this:
    49ers Players Profile

    Latest NewsRecent News-Jets claimed TE Konrad Reuland off waivers from the 49ers.A pass-catching specialist, Reuland reeled in nine balls for 73 yards during the preseason. His rawness as a blocker made him a causality at final cuts each of the past two years in San Francisco, however. His stay on the Jets' 53-man roster could be short. Sep 1 - 1:33 PM
