Actually if you look at the numbers on Antsports since the beginning of May:
1. Tony Gonzalez TE KCC 3.09
2. Antonio Gates TE SDC 3.10
3. Todd Heap TE BAL 5.12
4. Jason Witten TE DAL 6.01
5. Alge Crumpler TE ATL 6.04
6. Jeremy Shockey TE NYG 6.12
7. Dallas Clark TE IND 8.01
8. Randy McMichael TE MIA 8.06
9. Eric Johnson TE SFO 9.10
10. Jermaine Wiggins TE MIN 10.05
Wiggins is going a full 4 rounds after Crumpler on average. That's incredibly significant drafting a TE in the 10th instead of the 6th. In fact the highest Wiggins was drafted in the 118 samples that make up his 10.05 average draft status was at 6.09, which is still after Crumpler's average
draft status of 6.04
Teams are not taking him after Alge Crumpler. They are taking him before LJ Smith, Bubba Franks, Daniel Graham, and Marcus Pollard though, and rightfully so. I'd much rather snag Wiggins with tons of upside than any of those guys, who don't make an impact ever unless they score a TD.
