Poll: If they draft Howard at #4... (61 member(s) have cast votes)

I think picking Howard at #4 overall is..

  1. It's a good pick. Howard is an elite prospect. He'll be a game changer. (6 votes [9.84%])

    Percentage of vote: 9.84%

  2. It's an unconventional pick because TEs aren't valued that high, but I like it anyway. (10 votes [16.39%])

    Percentage of vote: 16.39%

  3. I don't see the value, but he's an intriguing prospect so I'll give it a chance before judging harshly. (22 votes [36.07%])

    Percentage of vote: 36.07%

  4. Seems like a misstep by the F.O. Better value could have been had. I'm very skeptical. (9 votes [14.75%])

    Percentage of vote: 14.75%

  5. What the hell were they thinking? This kid better be Gonzalez level quickly. (14 votes [22.95%])

    Percentage of vote: 22.95%

There's already discussion in another thread.  Probably best to to keep it there.

 

This is just a poll to gauge the opinion of the message board on taking a top TE prospect at #4. 

 

If there's no answer to describe how you'd feel about the pick feel free to elaborate, but there's an existing discussion in the other thread.

I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that a TE does not get drafted #4 overall.

Picking OJ at 4 would be stupid. I have been riding with the Jags since 1993.

Let em pick a TE and I will be rooting for another team.

If they actually picked Howard I'd give him a chance considering TE is such a huge need. I just doubt it happens because I don't see him worth being the highest drafted TE ever. Also, should he be the pick, my expectations will be real high. I'm expecting him to his part as a blocker, but moreover I want a dominating downfield target much like the Titans have with Delanie Walker or like the Panthers have with Olsen.

If you could leave the team over a single draft pick, you might as well move on now. Clearly this team is not in your blood. The Falcons are close enough and doing real well as of late.

But what if Anger was selected #4 overall?  :blink:

No, poor value that high in the draft.

I'd give it a chance but he would need to be a top 3 tight end in the league for me to say "yes good pick".

Oh come on, i've been on this wagon since day 1 too, and you KNOW that we've been through so much worse. If you survived Tyson Alualu, a punter in the 3rd round, and Derrick Harvey, you can survive a TE at 4. I don't like it either, but at least he looks like a good TE.

Maybe not as a rookie, but he better be in the Pro Bowl within three years.

Is there a position we could take top 5 where the expectation wouldn't be pro bowl caliber within 3 years?

 

I just don't understand how this imaginary wall exists where for a position like TE you are allowed to take studs that turn out to be good picks like Davis and Winslow at 6...but a whopping 2 picks earlier is OMG NO WAY HORRIBLE VALUE. Or the same for safety where using pick 5 to take studs like Sean Taylor or Eric Berry works out great...but again one whopping pick this time OMG NO WAY HORRIBLE VALUE.

 

Especially when the people saying this are often espousing RB top 5 which is at best equally bad position value and also littered with a ton of misses, whereas the elite TE and S picks have all been good.

Just in time for him to skip town and get a big FA deal.

If we draft him at 4, you can guarantee that Caldwell and Coughlin (he would have to "sign off" on the pick) would be on the fast track out of the NFL.

I'd give it a chance.  I think at the #4 pick, you need to pick the very best player who can get on the field, in other words, at a spot where he won't wind up sitting on the bench, and Howard would no doubt be a starter. 

 

We have to take the guy who is most likely to make the Pro Bowl.   If Howard is that good, then by all means, take him. 


Often wrong, never in doubt.

I wouldn't hate it. If the kid is that good, draft him.

Why would the FO even think about drafting a TE at #4 if we don't have a QB to pass to him?  While I believe OJ Howard has extreme talent and the need for a productive TE is very high, it makes no sense to draft him if we still are unsure about whether Bortles will be able to become a serviceable QB in this league.  Give him a RB and an OLine and let's see how he does.  Draft a TE in the 2-5 range.
