1. Red Zone scoring-Shanny loves a 2 TE set in the redzone and if Hape has been effective, imagine what a talented TE would do.
2. Great Value pick at 25- have you seen a list of best prospects that does not have this kid in top 25 overall? Most have him top 20.
3. We need Depth here-If Putz was to get hurt we would have Alexander as our primary TE. House is back at LT, Leach blows and Hape has more lives than a cat.
4. Not many would expect it-We all know how Shanny likes to shock the fans.
Well I actually would really like the pick. Miller could actually make an impact this year. Could actually extend Rod's career another year if he didn't have to go over the middle so much.
I would agree with you if we didn't pick up Alexander. I wouldn't mind drafting him though. Anytime you can get the best player in a position you are not doing that bad. I don't think he makes it past NY though, or do they pick after us? Either way it should come down to Jets and the Bungals.
