Back to Tony Pauline comments (from the Senior Bowl week). With regard to TEs, after day two's practice he did a podcast, where he mentioned he particularly liked the work of Josh Oliver (San Jose St.) listed as 6'5", 253.

Draft network has this to say about him. https://thedraftnetwork.com/2019/01/13/2019-nfl-draft-player-profile-josh-oliver/

Sadly, checking Drafttek's big board, Oliver was listed very high (28th overall).

(ricky) "Personally, I'm putting this in a box, driving a stake through its heart, firing a silver bullet into its (empty) head, nailing it shut, loading it into a rocket and firing it into the sun. "

I'm firmly in the Hockenson fan club. As a receiver he instantly improves the passing game, same with the running game. Fantastic blocker as well. IMHO he is a day one starter. Regardless of team needs, great teams are built on having great players. Jimmy Graham is near the end and at this point in his career is not worth the dollars. If Graham were to be cut, the pack would gain 5.3 million to spend in free agency.

CJ Conrad  Kentucky, another Jason Whitten.  Big bodied, deadly in red zone, great blocker.  Chain mover!
