    Long ways to go to project that far ahead but I would guess Raridon would be the most likely and I'd probably say it's likely he will at some point. Really good receiving/ball skills already.

      I really don't want that to happen again. No offense to Del, but if we can't develop any of our dudes at WR into meaningful guys in the boundary he needs to go.

                  Standing by mine, too. I'll chose the side that has, actual, data.

                    your data is based on two guys he didn't even recruit to the best of my memory. so again, proof is in the pudding. He's recruited decently, but hasn't developed talent that he's recruited. can't lean on two guys that signed over 5 years ago forever. time to move on and show me what you've done for me lately...AKA little to nothing.

                      You should listen to Miles' interview on the Pod of Gold podcast two weeks ago and hear what he has to say about Del.

                      Again, I'm simply pointing out your logic as incorrect. Saying Del hasn't developed players is simply incorrect. He has shown he can and has. Do I want to have a higher percent hit rate? Of course. Do I want to have a higher number of stud recruits? Of course. Is it all on Del though? I am not sure. Could be Kelly, could be Rees, could be Polian (former recruiting coordinator).

                      Simply put, your comment was too binary.

                          Agreed. My argument is we're not signing enough top talent. I think we've developed players with Del at the helm. Hell, for what we did last year w/running the ball, I think our two WRs ranked 1st and 2nd in the country in run blocking. I think WR talent is the lynchpin. I really hope we can make a splash this cycle.

                            Meh I'm not buying it. Agree to disagree here I'm not sold on him in player development. Hoping I'm wrong and would gladly eat crow

                              I guess I have been living under a rock and never really noticed the size of all these TEs.

                              I googled and the average TE is 6ft 3in... but just looking at the good ones....

                              Kittle 6ft 4in
                              Kelce 6ft 5in
                              Gronk 6ft 6in
                              Graham 6ft 7in
                              Tony Gonzo 6ft 5in
                              Gates 6ft 4in
                              Witten 6ft 6in
                              Dallas Clark 6ft 3in
                              Ertz 6ft 5in

                              Koyack 6ft 5in
                              Niklas 6ft 6in
                              Rudolph 6ft 6in
                              Eifert 6ft 6in
                              Fasono 6ft 4in
                              Carlson 6ft 5in
                              Kmet 6ft 6in
                              Tremble 6ft 4in

                              I never realized all ND TEs are 6ft 5in or over with the exeption of Berrong.

                                Yea, the real uniqueness here is that he's supposedly a true 6'6 with plus athleticism. There just aren't many guys like that. It makes his ceiling as high as any TE out there or on our roster. But, it'll probably take him some time to get to that level.

                                  Tremble is a just over 6’3. I honestly thought he’d come in even shorter but that was from Pro Day. Was one of the things I was curious about going in, he just doesn’t look 6’3 even. Maybe because he’s next to a massive OL and Kmet/Mayer all the time

                                    Then you look at what we have in the TE room and who will likely be joining:


                                    Kevin Bauman
                                    Red Bank, NJ
                                    TE
                                    6-5
                                    240
                                    Freshman (RS)
                                    80

                                    Cane Berrong
                                    Hartwell, GA
                                    TE
                                    6-3
                                    235
                                    Freshman
                                    88

                                    Mitchell Evans
                                    Wadsworth, OH
                                    TE
                                    6-5
                                    248
                                    Freshman
                                    87

                                    Michael Mayer
                                    Alexandria, KY
                                    TE
                                    6-5
                                    249
                                    Sophomore
                                    83

                                    George Takacs
                                    Naples, FL
                                    TE
                                    6-6
                                    245
                                    Junior (RS)
                                    85


                                    Raridon - 6'6
                                    Staes - 6'4

                                    I hope the TEs that are good enough to earn minutes down the road don't transfer out. It doesn't seem like a position group that would leave early but you never know. Whole lotta talent there. I'm trying to imagine Bauman, Berrong and Evans with one more full year of S&C training/training table. Fortunately Mayer gives us that luxury of looking down the road because he has TE#1 locked down for 2 more years.

                                          He's 5-6 tops.
