Owen Daniels has emerged as one of the top tight ends in the league. In his third season, he caught 70 passes for 862 yards. His numbers would have been even better if Matt Schaub didn't miss a handful of games.
Bo Scaife, Titans. Age: 28. Franchised by Titans
Bo Scaife actually put together a solid season, catching 58 balls for 561 yards and two touchdowns. All three of those numbers were career-highs.
Jim Kleinsasser, Vikings. Age: 32. Re-signed with Vikings (3 years)
One of the best blocking tight ends in the business, Jim Kleinsasser will be really missed in Minnesota if he walks.
Jeff King (RFA), Panthers. Age: 26. Tendered by Panthers (2nd round)
A solid blocker, but not much of a threat as a receiver.
Chris Baker, Jets. Age: 29. Signed with Patriots
An excellent TE2, but as we've seen in New York, he shouldn't be a starter.
L.J. Smith, Eagles. Age: 29. Signed with Ravens (1 year, $1.5 million)
Tough choice... no, I'm not talking about anyone signing L.J. Smith or not; I'm deciding on whether or not to call him the "King of the Dropped Pass;" the "Sultan of False Starts" or the "Emperor of Stealing Money from the Philadelphia Eagles."
Quinn "Miracle Man" Sypniewski, Ravens. Age: 27.
Quinn "Miracle Man" Sypniewski is the only player in NFL history capable of putting up stats while on injured reserve. The Miracle Man is a solid blocker who caught 34 passes for 246 yards in 2007.
Jerramy Stevens, Buccaneers. Age: 29. Re-signed with Buccaneers
Despite what some people may think, Jerramy "Matchup Nightmare" Stevens is a bum who doesn't work hard unless he's in a contract year.

I like your write up on Trubisky. I also like the gutsy move of Mahomes at #2 especially with Garrett on the board. However, there are glaring mistakes elsewhere. No way, the Saints draft a RB in 1st round after paying Peterson to be the primary back up to Ingram. Plus, they desperately need talent on the defensive side of the ball. Also, the Browns 2nd pick wouldn't be a rush OLB when they are converting to a base 4-3 and have Jamie Collins at the Sam.
Come on Walt. You have the Vikings drafting for need. They did a fairly good job if FA filling needs. I could see the RB in the second because thats value. The only needs they have are at dt and safety. I hope they pick highest rated player.
