Maybe I don’t know what I’m talking about, but I can’t believe the Bengals will draft a tight end. Their careers are just so short. So if the Falcons trade down, I think Pitts will be there for Miami.The Cincy pick was a large part of the discussion. Some of the other arguments for tackle over receiver, which seem logical, were the hit rate of high picks and the idea that you can build a receiver group that compliments each other, where as you can’t hide a tackle or have a specialist at the position.
After my post I started to see all the trade back down rumor articles. If true, I can’t help but connect the dots and think the target was Pitts and things have gone sideways. Hopefully things still do break the right way, if not, I suppose the latest reports are encouraging, as it seems like they are setting up multiple options to maximize value instead of panicking.
