    The Patriots look to use more two TE sets next year along with the Colts and us it seems. They have the great hands of Christian Fauria and two first-round Tight Ends in Benjamin Watson and Daniel Graham. Put Cory Dillion back there and this offense is starting too look pretty physical. Some around here have questioned why we took Joppru early and signed Bruenner but the NFL is trending to multiple TE sets it seems. The Colts sure are explosive out of theirs.

    Ben Watson was the strongest guy on Georgia's team last year. He benched 565lbs!!!!!!!!! Yea, he's that strong. I think at the combine he benched the 225 weight 34 times.

    Watson has the total package is terms of raw talent, as he also ran some crazy fourty time and had one the highest wonderlick scores in the combine. His play on the field has been ok, but has not matched his measurables.

    He sounds like he might do well this year.
