I think that, in a vacuum of the reality of the situation, one could make an argument for this pick.
He is a match-up nightmare. Minus Amendola, or another slot receiver, he could be a legitimate answer that provides a unique offensive wrinkle.
There have been other offenses employed with two TE sets. There’s never been one employed that invested so much draft capital into the position though.
Forcing DE’s and Edge rushers out wider, or exposing them to getting swallowed up. Could have a positive impact on pass protection and running lanes.
TE’s don’t make as much as WR’s. Helps the salary cap and makes them easier to tag/retain.
There are some on the board advocating making the offense the strength of the team. This could be the avenue to do just that.
Again, just seeing how this plays with the focus group.
