With our beloved Oline (minus an already missed Austin Howard) in semi-dubios condition, additional pass protection for our QB corps from the TE dept.could make a real difference. Troy therefore, would be a welcomed addition to the Jets (at least at my house lol)Don't know how much better or worse at blocking Ebron and Amaro are in comparison, but I'm still very much in favor of acquiring either one of these guys as well...Can't wait for this draft man!! Pat d 5pts Austin Seferian-Jenkins would be a better pick in the 2nd round. He had more production in his freshman year than Niklas did last year. Brian Noel Juarbe 5pts I would love getting Niklas in the second round. I've watched him play at Notre Dame and I think he's gonna be a solid pro player. Great blocker, tough over the middle and would be a killer in the red zone twin 5pts reading the giants blog for the 1st time..... ny fans are similar.. a few fans wanna trade back with their 1st pick as well.. I THINK WE SHOULD TRADE BACK FROM OUR 18THPICK & acquire a 2nd & 3rd pick for our 18th pick!!!!!! nyj_scott 5pts Is 3 plays really a highlight video? I might have made 3 good plays in my day... twin 5pts THE WIZARD OF ID HAS SHUT DOWN ALL BLOGGERS!!1 HE HAS CAST HIS SPELL!!!!!!!!!!!!! twin 5pts Lets all be happy Jets Fans.. We have a good visionary in our GM...& lets not forget hes an offensive minded GM. He played WR in college.. Eric Decker signing!!! Zartan 5pts I like him better than all the other prospects at TE. I like a TE that can block and catch when needed. Wayno 5pts Im fine with Jets taking any Notre Dame player, only college that plays a real schedule every year. Who cares if you put up 100 yrds against East Holy Garbage U like most of these players bklyndude 5pts The Jets need a good TE.I would take this kid and let our QB have a nice size target who can run and block as well as catch. Hoz 5pts some say this kid have the most upside than any tight end in this draft in a couple of years, that remains to be seen. Pat d 5pts No wayThere will be some impact players there at 18. The later you pick the odds of bust go way up. twin 5pts & of course take their 1st rd. pick, whoever we trade with.... a57se 5pts @nyj_scott If you want to see video of Niklas, go to Draft Breakdown...... yankspride 5pts @nyj_scott That's it. There's not much to see on Niklas. He was the backup TE to Eifert in 2012 and last year he didn't really figure much in ND's offense. 1969JAN12th 5pts @Wayno While I have all the respect in the world for the men and women of the armed forces who represent our nation around the world....Notre Dame plays the Naval Academy and the Air Force Academy, which are not exactly top ten football factories. juunit 5pts @Wayno That is the interesting thing about the SEC teams. They play the powerhouses, like Bama. And then they play Bama, except this time it's Alabama-Birmingham. Maybe they will eventually realize that parity is good for ratings and money and they'll re-order the conferences a bit. Bent moderator 5pts @Wayno Hey, that's where I went to school! jma020 5pts @Hoz Ebron clearly has the most upside. bob 5pts @Hoz He looks like Heath Miller Steeler's Tight End. Bytor 5pts @Bent @Wayno Really? I figured you for an Oxford or Cambridge dude. Zartan 5pts @jma020 @Hoz I can be wrong but when i watched Ebron, he left himself open for some lethal hits. You get away in college but the NFL.... joemustgo 5pts @bob @Hoz I could live with that. He's the guy I wanted them to draft in '05 instead of trading for Doug freakin Jolley. Zartan 5pts @jma020 @Zartan @Hoz sorry bro, i see a Dustin Keller. Unless you have Veron Davis size/speed, i'm not into taking low IQ guys. jma020 5pts @Zartan @jma020 @Hoz I never said he didn't have downside too. But his ceiling has to be the highest, I don't think anyone would argue that. Zartan 5pts @joemustgo @bob @Hoz I was upset and wanted him as well, lol.
