2013 NFL Draft: Round 2 (and 3) Live Blog & Open Thread


The second round of the 2013 NFL Draft is just about to kick off from Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

The Chiefs do not have a second-round pick right now. It appears as though the Branden Albert trade with Miami will not go through. If that is the case, the Chiefs may not pick until round three.

Here are KC’s picks for tonight:

3 (63)
3 (96)

I will be running a live blog below. Please use the comments to talk about all the action with your fellow Chiefs fans.

  • Ehud

    I feel like if I was waiting in the Jags room right now that I would start juggling something. Just to entertain.

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      That Titans pick once belonged to the Chiefs

      • Ehud

        Yeah, don’t remind me.

        • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

          Think they could have waited to trade for Smith until now?

          • Ehud

            No, the Chiefs’ biggest leverage was the #1 pick. I still think the Chiefs overpaid for Smith.

  • Ehud

    Anyone think the Albert deal is still going to go down?

    • Ehud

      I think the Dolphins are holding their ground until pick 54. They want to see who falls to them. If they don’t like the choices than they may pull the trigger on the Albert trade.

      • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

        Good idea. Hadn’t thought of that. Though I have heard that Miami has always been willing to give up #54. But the Chiefs won’t bite. Maybe, it is the other way around. Maybe the Chiefs want to see who is on the board.

        • Stacy D. Smith

          Good point. They better stay awake then and be ready to make that pick when the time comes.

    • dominicscarlatti

      Has BA had a physical with the Fins?

  • Goshootergo

    anyword on albert

    • Ehud

      None.

  • ladner morse

    Paddy… heard anything on a possible Albert trade???

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Not looking good. MIA willing to give up #54. Chiefs apparently want more. Dorsey isn’t backing down. Yet

      • Ehud

        I wouldn’t if I was Dorsey. I want #54 and #111 from the Dolphins if they want Albert.

        I think the Dolphins are holding tight to see who falls to them at 54 before truly considering trade.

        • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

          I hope Dorsey tells Ireland to go screw himself. Then I hope Albert plays lights out in 2013, the Chiefs cut Tyson Jackson and rework their cap to resign Albert.

          • ladner morse

            I agree. Hold em. Don’t fold em.

          • dominicscarlatti

            Take the pick, Dorsey, and let’s move on.

      • Stacy D. Smith

        I’m surprised by that. There’s so much talent available in Round 2. I would’ve taken it and moved on from Albert. Gotta say, I’m kinda disappointed.

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Geno Smith going to NYJ

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Geno to the JEts. Rolf.

    • Ehud

      The Jets fan reactions are priceless.

      • d-block

        That guy that started chanting, “Geno sucks”, deserves to be chokeslammed. The draft should rotate instead of being in NY all the time.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Te’o to Sandy Eggo… Geno to NY? Interesting.

  • Ehud

    Finish this sentence: The starting QB for the Jets on opening day is _____?

    • Stacy D. Smith

      Sanchez. Though I fully expect to see Geno before the season is up.

      • Justin R Groth

        Ido they already tried to ship Sanchez once I can see them trying again.

      • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

        Not sure NY is the best environment for Geno. At least I will get to watch him play.

  • Sarah Thomas

    Fans were definitely not happy with the last pick!

  • dominicscarlatti

    Geno to the Jets…!! I feel badly for Geno; had to wait until #39 and now he’s gone to the most dysfunctional franchise in the NFL. Terrible position that both Sanchez and Geno are now left in. Best of luck to Geno, however. I hope he can overcome Rex and the gang and become a success on Broadway.

  • dominicscarlatti

    Tank to the Niners…sorry, Bert.

  • Sarah Thomas

    So,how long before they get to us?

  • Ehud

    Congrats to SF for turning Alex Smith into Tank Carradine, a 7th round pick in 2013, and two 3rd round picks in 2014.

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Groan.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Good pick by the Raiders.

  • Ehud

    The pick of Menelik Watson by the Raiders gives the Chiefs more leverage. Every OT taken before #54 gives the Chiefs more leverage.

    • Stacy D. Smith

      Yep.

    • dominicscarlatti

      A Mancunian, and a fan of Manchester City, to boot…!

  • micah stephenson

    Geno to the Jets! Do that mean we will b trading them a draft pick for Sanchez soon? Lol

    • Ehud

      Nah, the Reid-like move would be to pick him up after he was cut, coach him up, and then flip him for a draft pick.

  • Ehud

    That Aaron Rodgers commercial just doesn’t get old to me. (Although it may by Round 7 tomorrow.)

  • Ehud

    More good news for Chiefs. Bengals re-signed Andre Smith. Another OT taken out of play.

  • micah stephenson

    Jets are winning the draft! Best CB in Milliner, best DT in S.Richardson, & best QB in Geno! Jets are do n it!

    • Jim Harper

      MEDIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Stacy D. Smith

    AZ got Minter. Good pick.

  • tribalrage

    Lacy to KC. Please

    • Ehud

      No, just, no.

      • tribalrage

        That dude is Steven Jackson

    • Jim Harper

      No, if the Chiefs draft a RB I am hoping for Lattimore

      • tribalrage

        I do like him. He would be a great comeback story

  • ladner morse

    CRAP… there goes Alonso!!!!!!

    • Ehud

      But Arthur Brown is still there…shhh.

      • t_tyrance

        I hope he’s there when we did but I seriously doubt it

        • Ehud

          I figure Bears or Giants will get him.

          • t_tyrance

            I, hope Keenan Allen falls to us but I seriously doubt that one too

      • Stacy D. Smith

        There are also a bunch of teams in need of help at ILB. Pittsburgh, currently on the clock, is one of them.

      • ladner morse

        Only way we can snag him is if teh Miami trade happens….

        • Ehud

          Would still need to trade up even with Miami trade.

      • TAZMOSIS

        Brown just went to the Ravens. CRAP!!!!

    • Stacy D. Smith

      Drafting him a round higher than necessary.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Alonso goes a round higher than I expected. Rut roh! Hope there isn’t a run on ILB’s.

    • Ehud

      Teo, Minter, and Alonso just went in the last 10 picks. I’d call that a run.

      • Stacy D. Smith

        I’m really not counting Te’o because I expected him to be gone at the bottom of Round 1.

  • Justin R Groth

    there goes bell

  • micah stephenson

    Go Chieeeeeefs!!!!

  • Bigtexjayhawk

    Somebody grt on twitter and say Arthur Brown just got arrested or something!! Keep falling AB!!

    • t_tyrance

      Are you Serious?

    • micah stephenson

      Chi is about to get him. Lol.

    • Ehud

      SHHHHHH! Don’t mention Arthur-hay Rown-bay.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mark.mcdaneld Mark McDaneld

    The Chiefs might be in position to take Nassib.

  • Ehud

    Whew, dodged one.

  • ladner morse

    Another ILB… Brown will go next among ILBs

  • ladner morse

    I want to see Armstead go off the board before #54.

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Well looks like Branden Albert will be a Chief.

    • d-block

      What position do you play BA at if he is a Chief this season but with no long term deal agreed upon?

  • Ehud

    Chiefs need to start thinking about trading up, possibly. Because I highly doubt Brown makes it past Ravens.

  • Ehud

    I did a twitter mock draft (www.mockone.net) where I took Barkley with the Chiefs 4th rounder and everyone said he wouldn’t be there. Starting to look more likely.

    • http://www.facebook.com/mark.mcdaneld Mark McDaneld

      I like Nassib over Barkley. If Brown is there, I see him too.

  • tribalrage

    Here we go

  • Ehud

    If I am Tannehill I’m going to be checking with the equipment manager to see just how much padding and helmet cushion I can wear.

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Yeah Tannehill is fucked.

  • Mike Arnold

    well…..how are we going to do on defense without a decent ILB….Brandon Albert’s stupid franchise amount makes it so we cannot even afford a free agent ILB….good grief….Chiefs….furthering stupid to higher levels. Should have made that trade with Miami. We need a decent ILB more than two starting LT. Eric Fisher as our LT Stephenson at RT, no Brandon Albert ‘s salary hit, with money to shore up our ILB problem, money to sign a RT free agent and money to sign our draft picks. This is why Brandon Albert needed to be moved, not because of lack of talent, but because his affordability after our free agent signings.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    I just got in and am catching up. Who else here is looking forward to Eric Fisher pancaking Manti Teo?

  • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

    there goes arthur…

  • Ehud

    And crap.

  • ladner morse

    Oh Nooooooo. Brown is gone!

  • http://www.facebook.com/nick.hoskins.391 Nick Hoskins

    Id take Lacy now. If were going BPA

  • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

    We might have had him if the Chargers wouldn’t have traded up for Te’o and started that linebacker spree.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Current draft tek projection has the Chiefs taking Phillip Thomas, FS, Fresno State

  • Heilios

    Ok just got off work, what’s happened so far?

    • Ehud

      Albert trade not going down, we were teased with Arthur Brown falling to us, and I am currently wondering who is starting at LILB for us.

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    How about Eddie Lacy as a sidekick to Jamaal Charles?

    • http://www.facebook.com/nick.hoskins.391 Nick Hoskins

      If Donkeys dont grab him first….

      • http://www.facebook.com/nick.hoskins.391 Nick Hoskins

        OK…..good enough for me. Take Lacy

        • http://www.facebook.com/nick.hoskins.391 Nick Hoskins

          If Merlin is correct and there is an injury concern. Take Larry Wofford and grab Lattimore later. I love Lattimore

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      Watch Denver take him

      • Ehud

        I think Packers are more likely. Although starting to question if there is an issue with Lacy.

    • http://www.facebook.com/mark.mcdaneld Mark McDaneld

      Don’t like him, kind of reminds me of Lendale White.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Bengals radio play-by-play man Dave Lapham said during a radio interview on the Lance Mcalister show this afternoon that he was hearing from a number of NFL teams that Lacy has some serious medical issues that has caused multiple teams to completely take him off their draft boards.

    • Ehud

      If true, I’m out on him.

  • Ehud

    BTW, if the Dolphins change their mind as the season approaches and they want Albert, they are coughing up a 1st rounder in 2014 for him, if I were Dorsey.

  • Heilios

    So whats happening to Lacey

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    We need another Justin Houston/Jamaal Charles pick here.

  • ladner morse

    Jesse Williams, Keenan Allen, Terron Armstead, Larry
    Warford, …. who’s it going to be???

    • t_tyrance

      Keenan Allen!

  • Ehud

    So many ways the Chiefs could go here. Unfortunately the ILB class has been value gutted.

  • http://www.facebook.com/nick.hoskins.391 Nick Hoskins

    take Warford

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Phillip Thomas, Barrett Jones, Jordan Poyer.

    • Ehud

      Personally not a fan of Jones. Like Poyer the player but dislike his off the field stuff. Thomas is a possibility.

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Who do you want boys?

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    I was a big Gary Barbaro fan when I was young

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    wow, a TE

  • http://www.facebook.com/nick.hoskins.391 Nick Hoskins

    W.T.F.

  • Ehud

    Oooh. Travis Kelce.

  • http://www.facebook.com/nick.hoskins.391 Nick Hoskins

    Way to fill a need

    • Justin R Groth

      How so?

    • Danny W

      Sarcasm font?

  • BigGil

    Hopefully Kelce won’t be made of glass…

    • Ehud

      He is not made of glass. The question is whether he will get suspended though.

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

    Hmm compared to Rob Gronkowski.

    • Justin R Groth

      Moeaki is in daenger then I guess.

      • Danny W

        I’d say Moe is gondi.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mark.mcdaneld Mark McDaneld

    Moeaki can’t stay healthy. Reading his stats, it makes sense.

  • Jim Harper

    Looks like Dorsey is staying true to BPA with this pick.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Here is my review that will be on DraftTek: Like Tony Moeaki, Kelce can do it all. He is a strong in-line blocker who can catch. He was plagued by maturity issues early on, but seems to have straightened out. Is Moeaki/Kelce KC’s answer to Gronk and Hernandez?

    • Jim Harper

      Could be right!

    • Ehud

      Would guess it is more like Fasano/Kelce since Moeaki can’t seem to stay healthy.

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        Good point, it certainly puts pressure on Moeaki.

        • Ehud

          The question is do you put Kelce as 3rd string TE and wait for Moeaki to get injured or do you list Moeaki as 3rd stringer and realize that he could be injured soon as well?

          • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

            Moeaki has proven he can play well in this league if healthy. If he is healthy, he starts IMO

          • KCMikeG

            Right as rain Merlin! He broke Tony G’s rookie records when he was healthy. I was there for “The Catch” and have never seen better!

      • 417chiefsfan

        I would agree. I think that R&D saw him as an upgrade to the often injured Tony Moeaki. The scouting reports I’ve read seem to not be able to rave on enough about his blocking skills either.

  • Jim Harper

    Anyone else notice how right on Mayock is?

    • Danny W

      He get’s extremely accurate every time someone tells him who the pick is in his ear.

  • troy utt

    Kelce??? Did not see that one coming with the #63 pick! Especially with K. Allen /UCLA, & Demontre Moore TA&M, both still left on the board…

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Draft Tek keeps updating their mock after each pick. Current projection is Shawn Williams, GA, SS

  • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen
  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Someone hide the peyote, the honey badger goes to AZ.

    • http://www.facebook.com/mark.mcdaneld Mark McDaneld

      I don’t care who you are, that’s funny right there…

    • Jim Harper

      You can hide it in my backyard. I promise he won’t find it!

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict
  • Danny W

    I’d like to see us maybe take Barret Jones or Matt Barkley.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    I like Barrett Jones a lot. He can play 5 positions

    • Danny W

      Yeah I think he’d fit us well especially Allen sucking as badly as he did last year.

    • Ehud

      Jones is on the ground too much for me. I’d rather have Brian Schwenke.

      • KCMikeG

        Agreed! Schwenke and Quessenberry are great value picks. The draft is a crazy thing! Was Jones a potential 1st round pick a few weeks ago?

  • Ehud

    There is a part of me starting to like the idea of drafting Jordan Poyer, moving him to FS, and letting him ballhawk there.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    We should get a solid player at the end of round 3 who can challenge for a starting spot or at least be a valuable reserve

  • Ehud

    Rats, I liked Wheaton.

  • Ehud

    Ha, seems like nfl.com is offline.

  • ladner morse

    I heard that Kelce is the younger brother of Philly Center. So, Reid knows about him and has a familiarity. I also think Moeaki has a great possibility of being cut.

    • KCMikeG

      When Moeaki was healthy in 2010 he broke Tony G’s rookie records. IF Moeaki is healthy he will be the best of them all. BIG IF. This is our insurance policy in case he gets hurt. Otherwise he won’t be going anywhere. Great depth at the position with Moeaki & Fasano being the guys Reid will move around (Reid’s TE’s have produced over 900 yards the last two years) with Kelce & Maneri (who also are good receivers) being the big loads to add even more power to our already impressive OL!

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    DraftTek is now projecting Brian Schwenke, Cal Center to the Chiefs

    • KCMikeG

      Love that pick! Quessenberry is still out there too!

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    I am watching Bacarri Rambo fall. Anyone else like him?

    • Ehud

      I like him. Concerned about off the field stuff though.

    • KCMikeG

      I do too. If we can keep him out of trouble like Houston then this guy could be huge for us.

      COMPARES TO: Dashon Goldson, FS, San Francisco 49ers: Like the 49ers’ standout free safety, Rambo has a tendency to make splashy plays as a pass thief and intimidating hitter but is prone to an occasional breakdown. If he can tighten up his game (and his off-field decision-making) Rambo has the talent to earn Pro Bowl consideration, just as Goldson has done for the 49ers.

  • Ehud

    First guy drafted not on my board.

  • Ehud

    Good get by Rams. Tavon and Stedman teamed up again.

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    we may have some good safety and interior line prospects to choose from here and at the top of round 4

  • micah stephenson

    We still need a RB and MLB

    • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

      Don’t forget Shaun Draughn and signing 3 free agent MLB’s.

      • KCMikeG

        Don’t forget Cyrus Gray!

      • micah stephenson

        We still need a RB. Lol

        • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

          True… lol

    • KCMikeG

      Lattimore in round #4

  • http://www.facebook.com/jordanmpollock Jordan Pollock

    Let’s go!! Baccari Rambo! Plz!

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Poyer and Thomas are still available

  • Ehud

    Knile Davis, very interesting.

    • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

      injury concerns…. mmmmmm

      • Ehud

        I feel like the pick of Kelce is pushing out an injury prone TE while we just drafted an injury prone RB. Don’t like the pick value here but, not a bad pick for the Chiefs. If he stays healthy he is a great compliment to Charles. If he gets injured we have RB depth to deal with it.

    • Ehud

      I don’t like the pick here.

  • Doug McD

    Use as a punt returner/special teams? Kid has speed.

  • ladner morse

    Help for Alex Smith = priority one. Done.

  • micah stephenson

    I guessed that right. Rb. Lol. Will they get MLB or QB next?

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    Here is my drafttek comment on Davis: A freak athlete with major injury (ankle) and fumbling concerns. This is a boom or bust pick. Charles gets his running buddy here. As part of a stable of running backs, Davis could be very effective. However, he doesn’t appear to be a good primary runner. Grade C

    • Ehud

      I would agree with that. Might even add a minus to that C.

      • micah stephenson

        And Dam.

        • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

          well, you asked for a rb, if you hadn’t said that, we would have gone DB here

    • KCMikeG

      IF healthy the extra credit work would push that grade to a B+

    • micah stephenson

      Dam.

    • Doug McD

      I have to think he got noticed because of his 4.37 40 at the combine.

    • Ehud

      I had a 6th round grade on Davis. If I were to go RB here I would have gone Lattimore, Randle, or Stepfan Taylor here.

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        I would not touch lattimore. Talk about injuries

        • Ehud

          True, then again, I didn’t really see RB as a need for the Chiefs. So I wouldn’t have made this pick.

          • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

            I liked bringing in a RB around round 5 or 6

          • Ehud

            I was open to the idea in Rounds 6 & 7 when I usually value hunt. Then I would’ve been open to a flier on Davis or someone else if the value was there.

  • KCMikeG

    He will be our goal line/3rd and 1 yard power back replacing what Hillis never provided.

  • Jim Harper

    Knile Davis? This is really putting my faith in R&D to the limit, but I have to trust their reasoning. I was actually hoping for Barkley here. He has the perfect skill set for Andy and could be brought along slow like Rodgers was. Maybe at #99 tomorrow. Overall I am pleased.

  • http://www.facebook.com/genemyuk Gene Yuknis

    like i said last night…geno and teblow…happy together

  • KCMikeG

    Thought Franklin would go before him.

  • Ehud

    The top guys left on my board are (in no order): QB Barkley, Wilson, Nassib. WR Quinton Patton, OC Barrett Jones, NT Jesse Williams, CB Jordan Poyer.

    There does seem to be value had at OLB right now. Chiefs could look to add depth behind Hali & Houston at top of 4th.

    • Ehud

      Although at this point I would assume medical problems with Jesse Williams.

  • Ehud

    Chiefs still have a lot of work to do. Still need a starting LILB, at least Safety depth, and could use depth at OLB, OC, & DE

  • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

    I am surprised that we have gone totally offensive in this draft so far.

    • Ehud

      I’m not too surprised. Offense needed a lot of work. And not just to make it functional but to make it Andy Reid’s. Still worried about LILB though.

      • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

        Yes, but with holes at ILB and the DB’s I would have thought we would have a pick there.

        • Ehud

          Agreed, but by the time they picked the value wasn’t there at ILB and our combination DB (CB & S) group is pretty solid.

          I’m having a heck of time guessing picks for the Chiefs since we don’t have a good handle on the new GM, what our offense will look like and what our defense will look like. Add in the depth and uncertainty surrounding (seemingly) all players in this draft and it is like trying to give an answer without knowing the question.

          • Merlin_Arrowhead_Addict

            I agree. I think we are all trying to get used what this new group will do. It took me about 2 drafts to really hone in on what Pioli valued.

  • Ehud

    At this point the best I can give the Chiefs is a C for this draft.

  • codi

    Chiefs should go after Quinton Patton WR Louisiana tech.

  • KCMikeG

    My draft grade analysis through round #3: STRONG B WITH POTENTIAL FOR B+ TO A- DEPENDING ON KNILE DAVIS HEALTH

    #1 – RT – Eric Fisher A+: Bigger, stronger, faster, better footwork than Joeckel. Critically important factor is flexibility to play either OT or OG positions. Huge upside, fits with the spread-style, speed-based attack Reid will favor.

    #2 – QB – Alex Smith B+: Only a top draft pick we develop into our QBOTF could earn an A grade. AS will continue his success experienced in SF.

    #3A – TE – Travis Kelce B: While initially a surprise he is a great blocker AND receiver. Insurance for Moeaki if health issues continue. Perfect for Reid’s system. The TE position is CRITICAL to the success of our offense. PLEASE See below from PFW:

    #3B – RB – Knile Davis C: This grade is ONLY due to his past injury issues. IF healthy this could become a huge sleeper pick and his extra credit work as our power back for goal line/3rd & short would move this to a B+.

    SO WHAT DO YOU THINK??

    PFW ON THE IMPORTANCE OF THE TE IN REID’S WEST COAST OFFENSE:
    From the West Coast offense to new Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, former NFL TEs Chad Lewis and Jackie Harris have common ground. But arguably the largest similarity surrounds the development they experienced with Reid, where honors and statistics offer evidence of production.

    Lewis enjoyed three straight Pro Bowl seasons (2000-02) in Philadelphia, including second-team All-Pro recognition by The Associated Press in 2000. Harris, who played on four teams during a 12-year career, had two of his top three seasons in yards receiving during Reid’s first two years in Green Bay (1992-93).

    Overall numbers tell the story, making it difficult to argue against Reid having an established system where TEs flourish.

    “Part of it is he coached the TE position for so many years in Green Bay, he has an affinity for TEs,” Lewis explained. “He understands the language, he understands the technique, he completely understands. Andy has no problem manufacturing plays to the tight end that helps the running game and passing game.”

    “Tony Moeaki and Kevin Boss (INSERT KELCE & FASANO), those guys are going to love Coach Reid,” Lewis said. “He loves tight ends and he knows how to get them the ball. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

    The former Eagles TE would know, as he totaled 152 catches for 1,555 yards and 12 touchdowns during his three Pro Bowl seasons.

    Former Packers TE Mark Chmura made three Pro Bowls (1995, 1997-98) and current Eagles TE Brent Celek averaged 59.2 catches with Reid the last four seasons, including a team-high 76 receptions in 2009.

    Additionally, former Eagles TE L.J. Smith proved heavily involved in the passing game. His 61 catches in 2005 tied for the team lead with then-Eagles RB Brian Westbrook, and Smith followed that season with 50 catches, good for second-best on the team.

    And there’s Harris, who went from 24 catches for 264 yards in 1991 before Reid to an increase to 55 catches for 595 yards in 1992 and 42 catches for 604 yards in 1993 with Reid.

    Former Eagles QB Koy Detmer said in most situations, what the TE does helps establish what the RBs and WRs do with their respective routes. He adds the TE route also sets up the QB read, making the development of unspoken communication between the two positions a priority.

    “The relationship between a QB and TE is very important because of the route concepts,” Detmer said. “The tight end is a big part of it because if he’s not the primary receiver, he’s almost always the secondary receiver. That becomes a real big deal to a West Coast offense with the TE.”

    Of course, the West Coast offense and its variations produced high-profile QBs over the last 25-plus years. However, Harris points out behind those QBs were capable TEs who helped the scheme work.

    “If you don’t have a TE that can play well, that fits in well, you can’t do a lot of the things that you saw Joe Montana, Brett Favre, Steve Young or Donovan McNabb do in the West Coast offense,” Harris said. “The TE is responsible for the blitz adjustment on just about every play. That offense is designed to let the WRs do their thing and the TE handles all the set adjustments, the hot reads, those kinds of things.”
