Hockenson, kittle 2.0 minus the injury history?

He's better than Kittle was at this point.

Noah Fant declared. He'll be a combine warrior. Gets in an offense that works TE of slit, he'll be good

Who has better pro potential between the Iowa TEs?  Hockensen or Fant?

Really depends on the offense you run.

 

Hockenson is the more complete TE imo. Both will put good numbers up at combine. Fant will dazzle.

 

Fant sky is the limit with him. Has to go to right offense. His plays were limited with controversy because his skillset didn't fit in some of the play calls at Iowa. Iowa laid in egg on not going down field more with him though. You get him in a pass happy offense where you run him downfield, he'll put up gaudy numbers.

Both guys will be good in the NFL. Iowa regularly puts their starting TE in the league. Their success rate when not injury prone is absurd.

Thoughts on Deebo Samuel? He had himself a game against Clemson. 10, 250, 3 tugs

I think Hockensen might be a bit better but Fant will be good and put up good combine #s.  He’s a bit like mike gesicki

I'm thinking Hockensen might be a good fit to replace Rudolph if the Vikings don't want to keep him at his current salary

Who is the number one receiver coming out this year?

I think it's more of a 1A/1B type of year. Nobody standing out from the pack. My top 5:

  • 1A N'Keal Harry
  • 1B Kelvin Harmon
  • 3 Hakeem Butler
  • 4 DK Metcalf
  • 5A Anthony Johnson
  • 5B Deebo Samuel
  • 5C Marquise Brown
  • 5D AJ Brown

What are some realistic WR/TE options for the cowboys at the bottom of the 2nd round fellas?

Kaden Smith from Stanford. Irv Smith from Alabama.

I like Kaden more.

Uhhh Metcalf pre-broken neck, Kelvin Harmon.. Hakeem Butler and Collin Johnson but they’re definitely not burners. LilJordan and Campbell are pretty fast.

It’s sad that Metcalf broke his neck, but he would’ve been the top receiver in this class by a slight margin if he were still healthy.

He'll be fine. He didn't "break his neck" as in he's paralyzed or anything. It required surgery and long-term he'll be fine.

Metcalf is probably still going to be the first WR taken. His broken neck isn't going to make him slower...I fully expect him to run close to a 4.40, maybe even better.

I still like N'Keal Harry more, but it's very close. And Metcalf is clearly the best ht/wt/spd freak in this draft class IMO.
