I'd love to have ASJ, but I see him as a luxury pick at a time when we have so many other huge holes to fill. It sure would be nice to have his size and athleticism going over the middle though.

TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins ready for NFL spotlight
Quote:
Austin Seferian-Jenkins recalls with fondness soaking in the atmosphere during the John Mackey Award ceremony at Baltimore’s Marriot Waterfront on April 12.

The recipient of the honor bestowed upon college football’s top tight end sat at a table with his mother Linda, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome and ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith, among others.

And when it came time to accept the award with the attention focused on him, the reality of the moment hammered home.

“That’s something not a lot of people really know,” Seferian-Jenkins said in a phone interview. “I wanted to win that award since I was probably in the sixth grade.

“To be able to be there, win that award, it was really cool. I get emotional talking about it because when you think about doing things your whole life, and then you have the opportunity to achieve it and you actually do it, there’s very few things that feel as good as that.”

Perhaps, but one of the elite tight end draft prospects of the 2014 class is in position to top that evening and fulfill another goal on May 8-10.

“I told myself I was going to make the NFL when I started playing football and that was when I was in the first grade,” Seferian-Jenkins said. “Ever since I put on pads, that was my vision and it hasn’t changed yet, and it won’t change. I just felt the day I put on those pads it was meant to be.”

Seferian-Jenkins Interviews Poorly; Could Fall to Round 3
Quote:
With tough questions about his off-the-field issues, Seferian-Jenkins hasn't impressed teams...

We've spoken with teams selecting early in the second round that need help at tight end, and they said they won't be drafting Seferian-Jenkins because of his personal makeup. They like him as a player and believe he is a first-round talent, but with his off-the-field concerns, they plan on passing on him...

Could also be a case of " gee we really hope we can get this guy in the bottom of the second" -itis

If ASJ drops to the bottom of the 2nd the Texans should be doing everything possible to trade up. Talent like ASJ, he can block in line or stretch the seam is rare. (Gronk like)

I noticed the Pats interviewed him. I could see the Pats trading into the middle of the 2nd and making ASJ a Pat, giving Brady another weapon that will help keep the Pats among the NFL elite.

ASJ is part of my BPA in RD2. 2A = Attaochu 2B = Moncrief 2C = ASJ

I have been saying for months that ASJ is my top TE. Of course I don't have the added bonus of getting to interview him in person. I'm basing my opinion strictly on his last two years of game tape. I have spent far less time this year reading about prospects than I usually do.

So I'm not that familiar with his off field stuff. Having said that, unless he's just a flat turd I would consider him with our second round pick and if he is a turd I would still trade up into the late second to get him. He is that good IMO.
