Here's the CBS breadkown, btw:

Quote:
STRENGTHS: Near-tight end size (6-5, 235) with a ridiculously large wingspan, giving him a catching radius that is probably on-par with anyone at the NFL level.
Shows the gliding speed and short-area quickness to create some separation and be a terror in jump-ball situations, especially in the red zone. Big hands, good hand-eye coordination and impressive body control to snatch passes outside of his frame. Tracks the ball well over his shoulder.

Experienced playing outside and in the slot and shows courage in crossing the middle. Tough to bring down in the open field, using his long arms to effectively stiff-arm defenders and showing suddenness to accelerate once the ball is in his hands. Attentive downfield blocker who works to seal off defenders as well as peel back to take out opponents in pursuit.

WEAKNESSES: Still developing as a route-runner, adding to questions about his ability to play a large role immediately in the NFL. While his size is problematic for defenders, Benjamin's length makes it difficult for him to sink his hips and explodes out of cuts, making him much better suited to verticals and crossing routes than double-moves, limiting his fit to certain schemes.

Drops too many passes. Allows the ball into his chest too often. Will take his eyes off the ball in an attempt to make the defender miss before actually securing the pass, leading to an occasional ugly drop. Seems to especially struggle with low passes, a problem for many taller receivers.

Stew and Khalil have now restructured too. With TD that gives us 7.25 more.

There was already some chatter about Brandon Thomas. Expect that to only increase.

Well, I'd say that this changes our draft needs. OL in the 1st round is a guarantee now.

Some talk about Hardy will be kept. Not sure if I like that call since he's asking for a lot of money, but we could use his talent.

I figured they might franchise him since Gettleman cleared 27 million in Cap.

Hardy to be tagged. This was a given before the Gross retirement. After Gross I thought maybe the team was squirreling away $ for an OT.

With a tag on Kraken we have a couple of good options
1. Sign to long term deal with cap friendly figures
2. Trade him

Gettleman stuck his foot in his mouth about Steve Smith the other day. Basically said nobody is immune from being traded or cut when specially asked about him. While what he said is technically true, he was an idiot for saying it in public. Cutting Smith would be a disaster since we have no other WR's. Plus the savings in cap money is nothing.

i feel like taking a lineman in the first round would be the best. A guy like Martavis Bryant could be had in a later round possibly the second or third. Good height and great speed

Would have said WR before Gross retired, now you might be right. WR concerns the heck out of me.

I disagree. Losing Smith would suck, but it wouldn't be a disaster. The receivers in this year's draft are some of the best in years. We'll be alright without Smith.
