    Who's your No. 2 2011 Tight End?

    Something that I've been wondering for a while now, and is particularly relevant given that Ron Rivera recently expressed a desire to get a complete tight end for his offense and widespread belief that this is the worst TE class in a long time. Regardless of what you think of Kyle Rudolph's draft range, I don't think anyone believes he's not the consensus top tight end in this draft. So who's second? Zach Pianalto of North Carolina, Luke Stocker of Tennessee, and D.J. Williams of Arkansas are the three guys I've heard the most "hype" for. Pianalto seems like more of a blocker, Williams is mostly a souped-up receiver, and Stocker seems like a classic No. 2/No. 3 TE who isn't the best athlete but can get the job done. Williams is my No. 2 for now, and a fringe 3rd-rounder in my book; I'm interested in seeing arguments for Stocker, Pianalto, and maybe guys like Virgil Green, though.

    This just isn't the year for need at certain positions including QB and TE. Last year's class was the year of the tight end. Dickson, Hernandez, Pitta, Gronkowski, Moeaki, and Gresham all look very promising. I think D.J. Williams will be #2 after Kyle Rudolph - blocking tight ends just aren't drafted very high.

    I've been hearing Lance Kendrick's name thrown around in expert circles because of his catching ability.

    Carolina is going to first evaluate to see if they have a full TE on their roster, then FA, then the draft. There is no guarantee they will even look TE in the draft *shrugs*


    Rely on your own strength of body and soul. Take for your star self-reliance, faith, honesty and industry. Don't take too much advice — keep at the helm and steer your own ship, and remember that the great art of commanding is to take a fair share of the work. Fire above the mark you intend to hit. Energy, invincible determination with the right motive, are the levers that move the world.

    As a Badger, it's difficult for me not to hype up Lance Kendricks. He can do it all and the only knock on him is that he needs to get a little thicker for the NFL.

    But yeah, I'm not sure I see him as a Panther, can't see much sense in going younger than we already are. I'd be stoked if we got someone like Zach Miller. Keep either Jeff King or Dante Rosario.

    I am a homer for Luke Stocker But I think Wisconsin's Lance Kendrick is

  7. Lance Kendricks is a guy I'm suprised isn't getting more hype. Most be the offense he plays in

    Also I failed then I thought for some reason Riveria was still with the Chargers and was talking about Gates haha.

    I know D.J. Williams isnt the best TE, but he might be the best baragin if he can be had in the 3rd or the 4th

  9. In the 3 Wisconsin games that I saw this season, Lance Kendricks looked very effective, both in receiving and run blocking. I think he should be the 2nd TE drafted in the next draft.
