Another TE. Are you FKM?


If your talking about Larry Webster, he is a DE that ran some TE drills for scouts.

Thanks for the clarification. A defensive end project makes a hell of a lot more sense to me here.

I watched the highlight film on Ebron, and it showed a few spots where he actually lined up as a DE if I remember correctly. And aren't TE a transitional position in which you can swap the player from Offense to Defense? Could that be a possibility?

The chances of that happening with a guy you drafted in the top ten are astronomically small. I really can't think of a more irresponsible thing to do as a GM than to pick a guy that is considered the best person in the draft at his position and then flip him to the opposite side of the ball and to a position that isn't similar at all. The only reasonable case you could make to do that is if the guy was a total bust and you had a string of injuries to the position you were switching him too.

TBH, I'm ignorant on the whole process, and picking and that's why I stay away from the draft games. I don't get it, and so don't mess with it. I know that Tebow was talked about as moving him to TE from QB, and this guy has flash speed, and showed in one video clip that he was able to play both sides, I just didn't know if they were considering doing something like that is all.

They talked about that with Tebow because he wasn't an NFL-caliber QB. Same thing happened with Dennard Robinson last year and Jordan Lynch this year, but they were both humble enough to face reality and work to switch to another position. Ebron should be a very good pro TE, so it doesn't make sense to move him from a position he excels at.
