Andy’s wrong. Tight end is not a premium position. Unless you have an opportunity to draft someone like Kellen Winslow, I would never pick one in the first round.
Greg Bedard had this to say in his Packer Insider chat today: “Vernon Davis only backs up my thinking on the TE position: it’s highly overrated. Davis was a workout wonder. Who cares if the guy can run a 4.38 when he blocks more than half the time? The Giants spent a first-round pick on a TE and the team won a Super Bowl without him.”
UPDATE: Bedard also hinted that the Packers would have news about the QB position shortly, but nothing terribly exciting. Here’s hoping it doesn’t involve Daunte Culpepper.
