That would leave 10 spots open, of course we could see some surprise cuts, some of the guys(DFF & Dwelley) are locks right now due to guaranteed money.

Will be fun to see what they do draft weekend.

Couple of notes:

  • I don't like our TE room. We're a guy short. I'd like to have 4 TE or 3 with Dwelley on the PS
  • IMO, our offense is 98% set. Just need a TE and maybe another OL to kick Moore or Pryor off the roster
  • Our DE group is a man short, so I carried 6 DT to fill space. I think we carry 5 DT and 5 DE
  • I think we carry 5 LB, but carried a 6th because we just don't have the bodies on defense to fill out a team right now
  • I think we carry 10 DBs with either 6 CB and 4 S or a straight 5 and 5 split. Don't love Thomas on the roster. We could use a vet corner and possibly a rookie, too

I think they draft another offensive lineman, another corner, another receiver, and another quarterback, but those guys do not make the 53 man roster (unless Lance/Kinlaw are traded post June 1).

I kinda like Wylie as a weapon.  He is smooth, athletic, and really good after the catch.  LaPorta seems like an interesting guy as well.

La Porta looks like he has a high floor, and would step into camp and instantly understand his role.  He transitions from blocking to catching very well, shows a lot of effort after the catch, and he can position his body to catch the ball very well.  I give him a 3rd round grade, and I also think he fits the system.  I think he possibly has the skill set take on Juice's role once he retires.  

The 2nd tight end and full back positions are pretty similar.  Having a wing type player is more important than an I form bruiser.  If we needed a guy to get downhill and generate push, I think we could teach Poe to do just enough to play traditional I form FB in goal line and short yardage situations.  

Wylie is an interesting weapon at TE.  He is more like Jordan Reed than George Kittle, but that skillset might be helpful.  It would be more in the Jennings side of things rather than the Wing, but he seems like he has an interesting and fluid skill set.  I still need to watch more, but at this point I think he is more in the  5th range.  Not sure how the athleticism would translate.  

I don't hate the idea of getting a 295LB athletic offensive tackle, and teach them to play 2nd tight end and emergency OT.  2nd tight ends block on probably 85% of their snaps.  Why not get a guy with a blocking heavy skillset and build.  He can be fluid with routes, or just fast, as long as he is at least a minor threat in the passing game.
