TBF Brock was always more Aaron Hernandez (on the field) than Gronk style TE prospect. 6'2" or 6'3" but very quick off the LOS.
yep

i think the concern with Brock will be if you line him in-line like you are going to run the ball -- not sure the defense will really honor that

Gronk, Kittle, Andrews, et al -- they are at a worst decent run blockers with Kittle being very good.

And Gronk was a phenomenal blocker.
yep -- so the whole playbook was open

Pitts in Atlanta -- he basically is a big WR and i think the defense treats him that way.

I think a team that already has a good in-line TE and is creative enough to use Bowers like a H-back -- probably can get some good production out of him

I agree, but that might not worth a first rounder for sure.

there seems to be a consensus that Bowers is going top 15...all the way to 5th to the Chargers. I just dont see it. He is a very good player, but i dont see him becoming a superstar. I think he would be an an amazing H back type player, kind of like a Jusycheck 2.0...but Id take Mcbride over Bowers in a heartbeat,

Yeah was just thinking the same thing. McBride > Bowers.

McBride is legit turning out to be the steal of the 2022 draft.

The dream scenario is trading down and still end up picking MHJ or even Nabers/Alt
I dont think such scenario is possible unless Monti is able to trade back up for like he did last year with Paris.

Falcons at 8 is about the lowest I'd go. And thats only if they can get a guarantee the Chargers wont take MHJ and are willing to trade back.

On mock simulators Tennessee is often trading up to 4 for Joe Alt. Again can we secure a trade up to 5?

Unless they really do have Nabers/Odunze wth very close grades to MHJ.
