I know, Im biased. I started the whole Eifert excitement thing on here and am on the bandwagon. How can they possibly pass up a 6'6 TE that can istantly impact and offense?? Not saying Jones is/will be a bust, but Ben needs WEAPONS on offense. Manny hasnt proved yet to stay healthy, our TE's right now wont get the offense going. If Heath came back, there would be a duel threat at the TE position. Huge red zone targets etc. He can block to help the running game and would stretch the field.
So this means what? He will be a ST'er or start right away. You spend a1st round pick on a OLB he better be starting half way through the season. I think Worilds can get it done personally, but guees we will find out. Ill eat my crow if Jones pans out, but I think Eifert will have a better career.
I like the Jones pick, but I still say we should have drafted offense. Patterson is still there for now, maybe we trade up and and get him.
