Re: 5 questions: Ben Tate edition
The team spent a 2nd round pick on him. They spent time coaching and developing him. Getting less than a first rounder would be a waste, IMO. I also agree that it's unlikely a team would give that up, and therefore I say ride him as long as you can. I actually think he's even better than people here give him credit for.
Full disclosure - I wanted Gerhart.
A real MVP contributes in all phases of the game.
