If he doesn't I would be surprised. I mean I know it has happened before, but this was one of the reason this guy was so big. Not only can the man block well, but he can catch. If he isn't used the right way it would be a huge disappointment in my opinion.

Couple thoughts:

1)not a missed picked. Roth would not have been great value at the pick. Good pick but maybe something happens and he falls in round 2 like Miller did in round 1. Miller only fell cause of his injury. His size, speed, talent didn't change to much(like Clarrett running 4.8763957 or whatever in the 40). So if you have a chance to get a previous top ten pick on discount so much the better.

2)Now that you have him, make the most of it. Two passes a game(one of those being a throw away and the TE was the closest eligible receiver) does not warrant us taking him with the pick. Now use him to complete short sure passes on 1st down, use him to draw away deep middle coverage from Ward/El/Wilson/Gibson, use him in goal line/red zone. I can live and be very happy if he gets used like this. His stats don't have to match Gates or Tony G., but he just has to be a threat enough to be effective.

3 minimum I said , 15 is to much, we run the ball, so 30 throws a game is max. right now for Ben, 10+ to Hines, El, Wilson, screens, etc.

but i expect to see 2-5 catches a game from him. He's a very good athletic tight end. the same type as todd heap style. Ward of course is gonna be the main point of our passing game and ill surely have 60+ catches unless an injury happens. i see randle el in the 40 range wilson in the 30. i think thats around what we'll see since we are a running team
