TE in rd. 2?

I like Knox too, optimistic about his future. And I agree with you that the Bills should and will take the best player available on their board. That said, if there was a top tier TE prospect there when the Bills have their pick....wouldn't it be great that have that big fast reliable guy for Josh Allen to throw to? I think every quarterback wants that.

 

A lot of people around here seem to think Kmet is a serious prospect. If he's that good, I wouldn't doubt if the Bills would consider him if he's there.


The only thing with Kmet, is that like Knox, he’s a bit raw. He needs some time so You may not get an immediate impact. But right away he becomes your best red zone threat. Like I said, he just turned 21 last week, so he’s a young 21. But I think his upside is immense. At the very least, I think he could be similar to Kyle Rudolph.

How Many Tight Ends do we really need ?

 

Hoarding, it's a horrible thing...

Lol.

 

having a lot of tight ends is one thing.  Having good tight ends is another.  At this point, we don’t really have 1 good one. Knox might be, but dropping 25% of his targets tells me he’s not yet “good”.  Sweeney, looked good and could be a nice player....yet he couldn’t get on the field over 3 TEs that aren’t good.  
 

I’d really like to add someone in the draft, but it’s a pretty week class

IMO, Beane has set us up to go BPA for every pick. All of our picks are going to be depth players this year (as opposed to last season when our first three picks started week one). I strongly suspect that they will evaluate BPA for every position including QB, and whomever that is, starting in round #2, is who we are going to pick.

We had our chance with Hooper, but we didn’t pull the trigger.  The Syracuse article about the Baylor WR was interesting and maybe a better option now given the FA TE market is pretty much dead and the draft is light on TE’s.  

 

Lol, we didnt pull the trigger?  How do you know Beane wasn't in touch with his agent or not?  Free Agency is a two way street where both sides need to have interest and also be close to the same ball park on compensation.

So by this logic you take the best kicker over the second best QB.  Take the

BPA at a position of need within the tier when picking.  If TE, not opposed but doubt it.


I think kicker is a different animal, but once you get into rounds 5-7 I would rather have the best kicker or punter as opposed to the 45th best guard. 
 

I think you are right, that you go BPA within tiers and whatnot, but if the value is that much greater at another position, you draft that guy. The value has to be close to the same, otherwise you are drafting for need.

I was just thinking, when is the last time we had a stud TE? We know what difference that makes in an offense, yet we've always had too many other pressing needs. After FA, we don't really have "holes." If we can get an awesome TE in the draft, it would be the icing on the cake. ;)

If I had to list positions that I'm certain would not be our second round pick, they would be in order:

  1. QB
  2. FB
  3. WR
  4. TE

I tend to agree, but I do think that if Kmet came out next year, he’s definitely a first round pick. Right now he is a work in progress. It is not an amazing class, but there are some good players in the bunch.

actually would be pretty cool if we drafted the best kicker this year in the later rounds.

If there was a FB in the draft with a 2nd round grade, we absolutely MUST draft that guy. If there was a FB THAT good, we need him smashing heads in Buffalo. LOL!!!

This is the most ridiculous attempt to prop up a crappy argument I've seen in a while. Comparing K to TE just to make a point is laughable.

I don't think taking Kmet is crazy, should he be available. Our TE group isn't particularly inspired other than Knox's potential.

Unfortunatley no smashing fullback really available. But I do think Dalton Keene is the next Kyle Juszcyk and I hope we take him. He is a Swiss army knife player who double as a tight end and a fullback. Love that guy. I think be could slip into the third round.

I would argue taking a lower rated player  because he is higher rated in a position  group is a bad strategy.  Take the highest ranked player within a tier at a position of need.  Seems simple vs drafting by highest ranked player within a position group.

No! stop it with the TE talk. You are about to waste a pick, relax we are ok at TE.

 

As they say you can never idiot proof things as they keep making better idiots!

Maybe Albert O in the 3rd, but that’s about it in terms of drafting a TE with any of the first three picks.

There should be a filter where any thread that starts with...”I was just thinking” or “Hear me out” or “I haven’t seen this discussed before” should go right to the TSW garbage can.

As you point out a really good tight end would be awesome but rarely will a second round  TE be good year one. I think we simply must be prepared for our best TE will be an improved Knox. I truly think we will go BPA at that point.

Cole Kmet is the only TE in this draft I would take. He has more natural hands than Sweeney or Knox and we would be set at TE between those three for years to come.
