    Yeah I know. Leonard’s better than any lb on our team already.

    I was on his train early for Dallas, but I understood some of the potential cons for him. He was considered a day 2 prospect till his freakish combine and he was quite raw as a football player. That being said, he has shown that he is a fast learner at the NFL level and even impressed Sean Lee in how fast he grasped the defense, even with a hamstring injury during TC.

    Lol please sign me up for a receiver that regularly has "poor" games with multiple 40 yards receptions.

    I understand that was the prevalent thought, but I had him as a top-20 player since December, and the Combine just solidified it. He had some rawness to his game, but he processed information quickly, and he really ironed out a lot of that rawness as the season progressed. His bowl game vs Oregon was about as good as any game you'll see from a college LB. He finished as the 9th-rated non-QB on my board.

    Didn't realize LVE was playing better than Leonard. That dude has been balling, a shame we had no shot at him.

    another shame is we had the chance at any TE we wanted and took the giraffe

    lol I love that nickname for him. The visualization of having a giraffe being flipped upside down is quite humerous.

    As a side note, I wanted Goedert and Jesse Bates.....what could have been

    Leonard’s been better. He’s playing with absolutely nothing around him.

    Don’t care what pff thinks.

    Anthony walker has been serviceable but lve is surrounded by much more on the edge and at lb in Dallas

    Which rookie TE is out producing Gesicki so much that it is a shame to have him on the team? I'm not really getting the Gesicki hate lately. HIs on the field production has been solid for the chances that he gets.

    Again them trying to get cute and prove they are smarter than anyone else. I am no draft guru so I tend to listen to the experts. I looked up every mock draft I could and I remember noticing Derwin falling because of his projection. I thought they would have taken another position based on need and then I see them take another safety and I'm like here we go again...

    Well just from looking at them before the draft Goedert seemed like much more of a football player than Gesicki. In college he (gesicki) dominated dudes due to that athleticism, played for a big school so it seemed like an okay option. I just get the feeling goedert will be the better pro.

    I'm looking at them right now. If Gesicki is such a bad TE, then why is he neck and neck with Goedert minus the TD production? I said it before that Goedert has a better QB, better offensive scheme, better mentor in Ertz; yet Gesicki is still right next to him in production.

    We are 8 games into the NFL season right now and I firmly believe that if you switch teams for both, we would be wishing we had drafted Gesicki.
