As of right now, the TEs:
1. Marcedes Lewis, SR, UCLA - Great hands, tall, RAC ability.
2. Leonard Pope, JR, Georgia - Most well-rounded and a BEAST (listed as 6'7" and 250lbs.)
3. Vernon Davis, JR, Maryland - He's like a WR but his height (6'3") isn't what you prefer for a TE, and he isn't the most polished blocker, although he is better than Marcedes)
4. Joel Klopfenstein, SR, Colorado - Somewhere in between Alexander and Putz. Maybe a little faster than Alexander and a better blocker than Putz.
POPE is Massive. If he declares, I want HIM. I saw Georgia the other day and he was A MAN AMOUNG BOYS.
Big, Strong and runs pretty effin' good for a man that size!! Plus you could do the Randy Moss thing and just throw the ball up in the endzone and let his huge Wingspan and 6-7 frame go up and grab it!!!
It would solve all our Red-Zone troubles (even though there are not nearly so bad this year...)
