Re: FAcy and Draft 


I do too, but Cameron is still a long shot to be a meaningful NFL TE. He will certainly get a chance. They need a vet and a draft pick at the position. Watson is underrated. He can still play at a high level as a receiver and he can block. His concussions are a concern. The fact that he dismisses them  is even more more a concern (for the man and his family). But Watson can ball. He makes tough play after tough play. He was also a team leader.

Iguess I'd be interested to know what you mean by "long shot".

JC shows repetedly that he seperates, he gets open, he catches the ball; often in open space, and what i like the best, he can run after the catch.  I really wonder how good of a run blocker a TE has to be to be a valid NFL TE. Can you be adaquate to chip a DE or shield a LBer instead of detroying him??

By meaningful, let's say 60 catches 800 yds. By long shot let's say, 33% chance he gets to that level. I do like him and he's shown some promise, but he's very inexperienced and there are so many ways a career gets derailed. The Browns would be much better off re-signing Watson than counting on Cameron to be the #1 this quickly. This is a TE friendly offense in a TE happy league. We might need to sign a vet and draft one even if Cameron surges this year.
