Never a huge fan of drafting a TE in round 1. Difficult position to rate. College offensive systems make it more difficult to evaluate the position. Not saying that there are never TE's with 1st round talent, but for my money, I think I'd prefer drafting one in later rounds.

Miller and Smith are okay, but there is no IMPACT TE in this draft so far as I can see ... no super blue-chipper who makes you salivate ... so I would pass on a TE in the 1st RD and look for one who has some upside following RD 1
Yeah, Bubba Franks... that clown who played in 3 straight probowls? THAT clown?
Talking about Bubba in the same sentence as Becht is like comparing Bollinger to Tom Brady...
