The success or failure of Julius Thomas does not depend on his pass catching ability, rather his development in blocking and staying healthy. Can he beat out Tamme as the pass catching tight end on this team? I don't know if he's there yet. He certainly is not ready to fill the shoes of a blocking tight end like Dreesen. How many tight ends do we keep with a roster this deep?
I'm rooting for the kid as I've watched him in training camp for a couple years now- he definitely flashes. We might see a surprise cut at TE after the roster is finalized....
