Summary: Kyle Rudolph is the consensus top tight end even though a hamstring injury cost him a good chunk of last season. The eagerness of many to compare him to New England rookie Rob Gronkowski sets the bar high. Rudolph has the same ability to hurt a defense down the seam. The modern NFL has a lot of athletic receiving tight ends. If Rudolph can become an even better blocker, bulk up and play a little tougher, he can stand out in the crowd.
Rockies and Diamondbacks fail yesterday, at least the Astros and Nats came through. For today: Closing two pars with Red Sox-178 in one and Nats -+169 in the other. In another ongoing par going in the second tier spot of a four team par will be the Astros -205. Start up par with the Dodgers -163, (Kershaw), two open. Still thinking about the Yankees in a start up. GLTA today.
@Bear Down He didn't do a horrible job even if Mitch doesn't pan out, I do believe Shaheen is going to be a monster TE for the Bears for quite a while. However Adams wouldve raised the level of the defense but Demps is a decent player and a veteran which might be just what this young secondary needs.
