Default Kevin Everett-TE

Thoughts on Kevin Everett? Would he be a good 2nd rnd pick or would we rather go o-line or RB here? Miami is putting out some good TE's, but they seem to be injury prone.

Kevin Everett would be a good 2nd round pick, while he may not be in the class of other miami TEs like shockey, winslow, or franks. He could be like what Randy McMichael is for the dolphins.

i think we can wait. a lot of miami fans think that he won't go until the third because the guy just can't catch, he fights the ball. but then again he could go higher because he is an athlete, probably the most athletic out of all the miami tight ends.

Remeber AJ didn't have the best hands coming out of Miami, either. Bottom line we just need an athlete who can block and stretch the field. We can live with him improving his hands for a year as long as he makes some big plays and can block. He could help open up the outside of the field by being able to get in the seam in the middle. I would like to see this guy in a Texans uniform. I'd also like to see a good young lineman and power runner. And hopefully a great o-lineman via FA

i know that but andre could catch ten times better than kevin. andre still made plays inspite of his catching. kevin doesn't have the chance because he can't get the ball. also the fact that he was hurt some this season will hurt his stock. it all depends on what he runs at the combine and pro day, probably in the 4.5's which will probably put him in the second. wags can correct me, but watson wasn't the best te but he was a physical freak, 4.5 and a 500 lb bench and went in the first so who knows. yeah miami is turning into te u, look out for greg olsen and they just took dajleon farr out of north shore, the #1 te in the country, from lsu.

unless we draft him in the 2nd, we won't have a shot a him since this years TE class is so thin. But there are other players worth a look. Like Alex Smith from Stanford, Joel Dreesssen from Colorado St, and one of the, if the the best blocking TE in the draft Alex Holmes from USC. This guy is huge at 6'3", 270 lbs and decent speed with a 4.75 forty.

Watson is the poster boy for workout warriors. He benched 600 lbs his senior year at Georgia, breaking the UGA record. I don't remember exactly, but I think he ran 4.5 at the combine. Also he did 34 reps of 225 at the combine. He was definitely drafted based on potential and physical prowess, because he didn't put up first round numbers at Georgia.

Yeah at this point I think he will be there in Rd.3 but I have a feeling he will put up great stats at the combine and his stock will rise and become a possible Rd.2 or late Rd.1. Now teams are looking for a TE that can stretch the field and keep the deense honest, it's invailable these days. There was Shockey, Winslow and now possibly Everette and lets not forget about Winston who made the switch to T but was recruited as a TE... Geeze, what is Miami turning into TE U?
