Receivers are a different breed .that can go anywhere from AJ to TO . The great ones can focus to go along with their skills .

I think next to QBs , WR get blasted the most by defenders . RBs get hit a bunch but know that's just part of the job . A WR has to be able to focus knowing he's going to get smashed .

Alright Earl, so I looked into Dooley's background a little bit.
It doesn't look like he had any track record with his receivers getting drafted into the NFL to speak of, so we can't judge these receivers (Hunter, Rodgers, and Patterson) on the program.

Now, if we take into account the post that playoff made in another thread, about all the problems these Vols players seem to have (including the QB Tyler Bray), we could put up a red flag and ask the questions as to why and what happened.

I wouldn't mind seeing Eifert in a Texans uniform next season. It'll benefit a noodle armed QB like Schaub who throws floaters often. It'll give him a bigger target in the middle of the field. Eifer probably has a bigger catch radius than your run of the mill receiver and also he would give us that big target in the end zone.

I changes my mind. Just watched some clips of eifert and I'd be behind this pick.

Looks like a more consistent target than Most of the receivers I've seen.

If Posey had not torn his damn achilles Eifert would be getting much more love round here. If we do end up with Eifert, and Posey can come back 100%... its a win across the board.

Texans don't like to pay for this position. Owen signed @ discount following his acl. Dreessen was let go now Casey. I don't see it

I can see it if they basically make him receiver #2...

He's not a homerun threat or a catch and run guy, but he can make big plays down the field...

I don't think it fits what Kubiak wants to do offensively, but if he was willing to change it up a little I could see it working.

I like the idea of Eifert in round 1. Daniels is getting up there in age, and unfortunately, Graham, is getting his head hit around like a pinata. And dynamic tight ends are pretty dang valuable in this new NFL.

We still have ammo to move near the top of round 2 if a guy like Hunter, or Terrance Williams is there. Then we have our third rounder for a brand new ILB like Bostic.

I didn't mean that eifert doesnt fit....I mean to say that I don't think kubiak wants to play without a field stretcher...

I'm not making a strong statement either way, but just thinking through out loud how the offense would look if eifert was drafted. Talent wise, he definitely looks worth the pick.

When I first saw mocks of Eifert going to the Texans, I was incredulous. After kicking it around for a few days, it's starting to make sense. I think we can get a field stretcher in the 2nd.

I like Eifert a lot, but guys like Levine Toilolo or Joseph Fauria would bring much better value between the 5th and 7th round.

There's a good chance neither gets drafted but they offer better value?
