Is drafting a tight end still on

barens : 3/15/2023 10:07 am
the table? Such a deep draft at that position, and if upgrading the wide receiver position doesn't fall the way they want, would having a stable full of hopefully quality tight ends make a difference?
Probably not on day 3  
Chris684 : 3/15/2023 10:10 am : link
But I kinda felt like Kincaid would be a strong possibility at 25. Have to figure that’s off the table now.

I’m starting to see CB come into focus at #25 honestly.
Think that TE is more of a day 3 priority now  
Jim in Tampa : 3/15/2023 10:11 am : link
And after the first 3 rounds, I think most teams are just looking for the best players, regardless of position.
I hope so  
Jay on the Island : 3/15/2023 10:11 am : link
but not until day 3 unless a TE falls that is clearly BPA on day 2.
With Waller and Bellinger  
Mike in NY : 3/15/2023 10:13 am : link
I don't think we need to look at one before Round 6 or 7 or ideally just bring in a few as UDFA and may the best person win the TE3 spot. I am just not a fan of 3 TE packages because with Barkley on the field you only have 1 WR which limits the amount of plays you can run as defenses can basically double the lone WR and crash the box with the rest. This is even more of an issue if Hodgins is your lone WR because he is not a deep threat at all.
As usual  
Jay on the Island : 3/15/2023 10:13 am : link
I want the Giants to target a Bellinger type in the draft. A good blocker with above average athleticism. A guy who didn't produce too much in college because of poor QB play or because he was underutilized in the offense.
I can see them taking  
mavric : 3/15/2023 10:13 am : link
a player down the board like a Payne Durham or Zack Kuntz. Who knows? It would be nice to have another TE in the fold.

Kuntz is one I can see going on day 2, he looks like a really good player. There are a lot tho, and I do like the idea of putting 3 quality tight ends on the field who can all be a threat in the passing game.
it should be - cager was a nice story but he's at best 1 dimensional  
Eric on Li : 3/15/2023 10:19 am : link
and honestly his 1 dimension is pretty average at best. if there's another guy they like in the bellinger mold on day 3 it's an obvious pick since that's a strong position group. Will Mallory would be a really nice fit as 3rd TE.
I would think so...  
Brown_Hornet : 3/15/2023 10:21 am : link
...but I expect day 1&2, unless a WR falls that they love, will be DL/CB.
Certainly should be  
AcesUp : 3/15/2023 10:25 am : link
Like others said, not until Day 3 though. However, there are plenty of quality Day 3 TEs out there, depends on what they want. You could grab a developmental receiving TE to hedge/develop behind Waller or focus on a blocking TE for your 13 looks. I'm hoping the Giants draft into the strength of the draft and take a CB, RB and TE at different points.
Not for me - I'm happy with Waller, Bellinger, and some 3rd

Archer : 3/15/2023 10:34 am : link
I guess it depends if the value is there.
Waller can play the slot and outside.
I trust that Dabol will know how to utilize talent.

Remember when the Patriots had (3) TE formations.
I'd draft one.  
Klaatu : 3/15/2023 10:49 am : link
It's a deep class. If the value is there Day 3, go for it. With Bellinger and a healthy Waller, plus a kid kike Cager who they appear to like, they look strong at the position, but there's nothing wrong with getting stronger.
Would love a good blocking TE  
Tim in Eternal Blue : 3/15/2023 10:53 am : link

That can catch a couple passes a game. Love the idea of running 3 TE sets, here and there.
allstarjim : 3/15/2023 11:20 am : link
I think it's still on the table if the value is there, but probably no earlier than the 5th round.

I think this team likes Cager as well, so there's room to add one guy, I think it makes sense to hedge for injury, but like has been said, it won't be a priority add with Waller, Bellinger, and Cager.
bw in dc : 3/15/2023 11:26 am : link
JFC, Waller and Bellinger should be plenty. It simply comes down to health at the point.

Keep Cager or find a free agent/UDFA for the third spot.

We have bigger fish to fry.

Giants need playmakers so no, nothing is off the table
Also Waller is essentially on a year to year deal  
BigBlue7 : 3/15/2023 11:27 am : link
DavidinBMNY : 3/15/2023 11:31 am : link
Improve the team. If need matches value pull the string. They took Bellinger in Rd 4. I don't think they'd go Rd 1 or 2, but anything later wouldn't surprise me.
I wouldn’t completely rule it out,  
Section331 : 3/15/2023 11:32 am : link
but it would be a later pick, not day 1 or 2.
Wouldn't bother me at all.  
David B. : 3/15/2023 11:53 am : link
They've had crap and JAGs at that position for so long (until Bellinger). And currently, whoever's TE3 is still a JAG.

Both Waller and Bellinger have injury histories. You're only "all set" there until you aren't. The Giants need weapons. And in a year where the WRs aren't the ideal, why not?

As to where in the draft? Hey, it's still BPA in the war room whether you guys like that or not. IF they're stuck in a slot and they CAN'T move out of it, and the TE is clearly the BPA, they're going to take him.

But yes, one would hope that if that's at 25, they could trade back.
Paul326 : 3/15/2023 12:13 pm : link
The way his contract has been described for all intents & purposes it is a 1 year deal. Nothing is guaranteed after this year. So it wouldn't surprise me if the value is there in the 3rd round or later Schoen takes a TE.
I cant see it until after round 5  
blueblood : 3/15/2023 12:15 pm : link
they still have Cager and will probably get another vet on the cheap.
Brevyn Spann-Ford in the seventh round!  
Anakim : 3/15/2023 12:17 pm : link
Joe Beckwith : 3/15/2023 12:33 pm : link
Waller and RN-V are rentals in deep TE and DT classes.
And they will draft an LB.

Though they may also add young, smart , dependable through further FA as well.
Listen we can go to war with on O  
Carl in CT : 3/15/2023 12:36 pm : link
Our TE’s, QB, RB. Need some OL help and really need Wr’s. On D is where the draft depth of 1-2 corners, a safety, and other LB. With getting stronger on DL. Still work to be done.
I think you could still draft one on Day 3  
Simms11 : 3/15/2023 1:28 pm : link
It’s a good draft for TEs. I clearly see CB or WR now as pick #25.

we have six picks rds 5-7
good area for TE, RB, maybe punter (some reason extended gillen though)
A late round

Blocking type to help the o line.
