For thoes of you who are still bent that we moved up to take him at the end of the second I can tell you for a fact that had he not been selected by us he would have been the first pick in the third round. As it happened the Jets had planned to take Quinn or Green and they were upset because TE was a greater need than RB and they have concerns about shonn green's knees.

Sources are wonderful things.

Not that I doubt it, but a source makes such a post much more impactful.

this makes sense to me...

because as i've read numerous times, behind pettigrew, Quinn was the best blocking TE available...so if you really want him and you don't feel there are a lot of impact players left on the board anyway, then why take a chance on him sliding?...

people point out that Quinn is a blocking TE and not known as a receiving TE so he wasn't worth a late 2nd round pick...but Pettigrew is the almost the same type TE (zero TD catches in his senior year) and he went in the 1st round...

Sure why not,,, still we now have not one, two or 3 but 4 damn TE's on the roster, maybe even a 5th I don't know about? Start cutting or trading, man I don't like scheffler, I hope he's the first to go, send his injury proned ass to chicago too

Haha I know, that hasn't been adding up for me at all. But yeah, I'd love to know where the OP heard this.

I personally don't care where he was picked, but I do like the idea of essentially having a 7 man oline to run the ball behind.

With DG and Quinn on either side of the OTs, it should bode very well for Moreno (or any other RB we have on the final roster) to have some excellent holes to run through!

people ignore this, i would gladly give up MORE then what we did if it allows us to POUND the football into the end zone. i want teams to know when and how we are gonna run the ball and for us to still be able to. now we will be able to do that...in the RED ZONE

how sick is that?

And I don't doubt the Jets interest in Quinn either. They have a receiving option in Keller so it makes sense. I also know that Pettigrew was very high on our board. As in probably the third rated offensive prospect! I was hearing some rumors predraft that had him as the 18 pick for us. Had Moreno gone off the board prior to 12, it would most likely have been Ayers at 12 and Pettigrew at 18. Glad we got Moreno instead!

I think having him with help in goal line situations and since this team has had so much troubles over the years scoring TD's once in the red zone, having him and Graham blocking at the same time will help run the ball mroe effectively in short yardage situations.

He will help in the redzone to pound the ball in, but the biggest gain is his agility in blocking. McD likes to run a variety of screens. A TE lined up as a slot receiver or an HBack can get out with his quickness and use that agility to block downfield.
