    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...
