If your concept for a two TE offense is to have Gesicki + Smythe, that could work. Alternatively, if your concept is to lose Gesicki and use our primo draft pick simply to replace him with Kyle Pitts, then Kyle Pitts + Smythe could work also. But where we disagree is if you think Gesicki + Pitts would work. If that's your concept, then we're simply not going to agree on this one brother. Personally, I prefer the option of Gesicki + Chase to the option of Pitts - Gesicki, or Gesicki + Pitts. But, reasonable minds may differ on that perspective.
Ive mentioned plenty of facts here for months.
You can use basic google skill to look at his combine results and scouting reports.
Should give you some clarity on why your opinion is foolish.
Pretty funny how hard you root for this guy to fail. We will be sure and revisit this, dont you worry about that.
My definition of athletic is comparing his size, speed, and agility times in drills done by every other TE.Your defintion of athletic is pretty hilarious.
Lots of folks here showing they barely watch college football or lean about the prospects they run their mouths about.
We disagree on Gesicki. IMHO, he is ascending into an elite TE, and his play demands far more than 20 snaps a game. If you look at his production, there is a very good case to be made that he is our best player on offense. We can disagree about his worth and re-signing him, but let's be honest that he's an exceptional TE and playing him only 20 snaps a game is a bad move by any OC.I see the ideal role for Gesicki being someone who get 20-30 snaps a game, so I don't really view him as an great pairing with anyone. Whether you want to call him a backup TE or slot WR hes a guy who can thrive exploiting certain mismatches or get completely neutralized dependent on the opponent. To me that's a player that every coordinator would love to have in his arsenal and very few would want as an every day starter.
I think you could do some interesting things with Smythe, Pitts, and Gesicki.
After watching a bit more, I see both Pitts and Gesicki as being tall WRs; not big, strong TEs. I think Gesicki makes the tougher catches, but Pitts appears to be a better route runner.Watch some more tape, perhaps! I've watched every Gator and Dolphins game that these two have played in..not close to the level of Kyle is Mike.

Today's NFL is different than that of the past. If you honestly think anyone drafting Kyle Pitts is going to use him to run block and pass protect for 50% of his snaps, you are incorrect. Today there are two positions, and very few players can cover both. Those positions are referred to as "Move TE" and "In-Line TE" and just about every TE you see in the Pro Bowl and all of them on the All-Pro teams are Move TE's. Very few of them do much blocking at all these days.I don't see how anyone looks at Gesicki and thinks he can be an elite TE. He can't really block, his route tree is limited to about 3 distinct routes, and he can't get yards after contact. Do you see any of those things changing over time? I'm assuming both the blocking and inability to break tackles is in large part due to him playing upright and not having the lower body strength. Maybe he'll put in the work and that'll improve but we haven't seen much evidence so far. The route thing I think is hopeless.
Hes big, hes fast, and hes got an incredible catch radius. He has a place in the NFL...just think you need a whole lot more from your starting TE.
Try it, and Smythe will catch the ball. He's no slouch at fitting in zone holes and doesnt drop the ball. I feel Smythe definitely proved himself worthy that way.May be odd man out, but, from memory, it seems a number of running plays died when the edge D crashed in and tackled the RB on runs between the tackles. Don't need a Gronk to stop that. Just get in the guys way for half a second.
Having said that, having MG, Pitts, DVP, Williams, Fuller (just guessing) isn't much difference from 5 WRs as far as blocking goes. My one discomfort with MG/Pitts is, repplacing one of them with Smythe is broadcasting a run play.
