Default Zach Ertz, TE Stanford -- 1st round prospect

Excepts from Rotoworld's Evan Silva's Zach Ertz, Fluid Mover - February 12, 2013

Quote:
A classic "move" tight end in Pep Hamilton and David Shaw's West Coast-style offense, Ertz was utilized all over the formation...

Listed at 6-foot-6 and 252 pounds on the Stanford website, Ertz is a dynamic mover for his size...

Ertz demonstrated legitimate vertical speed and comfortably sifted through traffic...

Much less impressive was Ertz's run blocking in the four games I viewed...

Ertz displayed pass-game instincts by working back to his quarterback when Stanford's wideouts failed to come open downfield. He fought off physical press coverage and jams at the line of scrimmage...

Ertz possesses outstanding athleticism for his size and looks ready to play in the pros, especially in the slot and out wide. I wouldn't be surprised if he's a top-20 pick in April's draft.

I don't know a lot about Ertz, but I'm sure he's a very good player with lots of potential and worthy of a 1st round pick. With that said this move only makes sense if we were to cut OD. I know we play a lot of 2 TE sets but Graham really stepped up this past season, so if we kept OD who would sit the bench? I like the idea of a TE in this draft but I'm thinking someone like Michael Williams or Nick Kasa in the 4th or 5th round, a blocking TE that can still catch the ball.

Ertz is a superb TE, but I really think we could add similar playmaking ability just by finally moving Casey from FB to TE where I think he could be a a great target and playmaker.

I really like Ertz and wish the Texans would take him, but I don't think they go that route in the 1st. My guess is they go WR, OLB, or ILB. I do hope they take a big TE at least in the mid rounds somewhere. This looks like a good draft for the bigger TE's like Fauria, Kelce, Sims, Williams, etc...
