No, the Texans did not have an inline TE. This guy's a starter in a 2 TE lineup. And do we know for sure that X won't be tried at RT?

My third favourite TE after ASJ and Niklas.

Still wanting some serious beef on the DL

I'm really loving the first BOB draft on paper.

Looks like for the first time in a long time we are going to be a big and intimidating team.

Well, we've just further improved our running game (I sense a trend here) and got a legitimate redone threat. And the guy he is most compared to is Gronk (who was a 3d rounder if I'm correct) - plus he actually seems to be a team first guy and a hard worker. Tall, big hands, good body control, what's not to like?

From the Boston Herald today:
http://bostonherald.com/sports/patri...ance_for_gronk

Quote:
If the Patriots are looking for Rob Gronkowski insurance, or better yet, a durable version of Gronk, there’s one lurking in the draft.

Iowa’s C.J. Fiedorowicz just might be the closest to a Gronk clone in terms of being a dual-threat tight end.

First, he’s arguably the best blocking tight end in the draft. He also has great hands and can catch the football.

The fact he fits in the Gronk mold should come as no surprise. The 6-foot-5, 265-pound Fiedorowicz modeled his game after the Patriots tight end.

“A lot of tight ends in the NFL are either blocking tight ends or receiving tight ends. I like watching Rob Gronkowski, someone I look up to,” Fiedorowicz said during the scouting combine. “He can dominate both the line of scrimmage and down the field. That’s who I kind of want to be like.”

Oh yeah.

He's a nightmare for defenses in the mold of Gronkowski, just not quite as athletic.

Not really what I was looking for but if FIDO can get the Pats 2 TE offense going i guess we'll be going that way.

I valued any defensive lineman

Any ILB

Any DB

Any Qb

more then a goddamned TE. But I guess whatever. This is the pick i'll look back on in 2-3 years and say I was wrong or right.

Agreed. This is looking like a great draft so far. Three players that can immediately play.

After watching Fiedorowicz video I can say what an AWESOME pick! We are going for size and Gron II will be great. So far I give this draft an A+.

Agreed. I like the pick. My only thought is what about Ryan Griffin? Are we not expecting him to improve? Or is this good insurance in case Garrett Graham gets hurt? I suppose we'll be pretty good in double tight end formations regardless. I think Fiedorowicz is a sexy pick on the surface aka nice eye candy.

I just hope he reaches his potential and doesn't become another David LaFleur, similar size and talent coming out of college, aka former first-round pick in 1997 for the Dallas Cowboys. Really awesome and big 6'7 and 272 pass-catching tight end that was supposed to become a really solid pro. He was out of the league by 2000. Became a big bust instead.

Watching the highlights of C.J. Fiedorowicz that is who he reminds me of. Hopefully he has a much better career in the NFL like I said. He's a third-round pick so the expectations aren't the same as a first rounder. Less pressure.

So far 3 picks, and 3 new legit starters. great draft so far.

These Mallet rumors are heating up. Not sure I like that, but will ride it out with BOB I guess.

I gave the pick a thumbs down - Not because I don't like the player. I do like him and think he'll be a quality NFL TE.


I just look at the roster and think there were better options on the board.

(Louis Nix , Rice CB Phillip Gaines , Morgan Moses , Antonio Richardson)

It seems like a luxury pick ....

He's easily the starting TE on the Team.

Don't have to settle for Grahm or Griffin as starters. CJ is a legit starter.

IMO 3 starters with three picks = a great draft so far. And these aren't just guys. I think all three picks can be reaaaaaallllly good players.

He is getting compared to Gronk but I think he is a bit more like Heath Miller from the Steelers.
