Look at Manning's total TE passing stats over the past 5 years...yeah, they are between several people:
2000 - 77 rec., 977 yards, 6 TD's (Dilger, Pollard)
2001 - 79 rec., 1082 yards, 9 TD's (Dilger, Pollard)
2002 - 51 rec., 565 yards, 6 TD's (Pollard, Davenport, Wiggins)
2003 - 72 rec., 904 yards, 4 TD's (Pollard, Clark, Davenport)
2004 - 58 rec., 765 yards, 11 TD's (Pollard, Clark, Hartsock)
He threw for over 900 yards to TE's three times in five years...not including last year's crazy year. So it's going to be Clark and Hartsock this year. I don't see why Clark can't get the majority of it - maybe around 700 yards and catch 6 TD's. That would probably be good enough for 6th place on the TE totem pole behind Gonzo, Gates, Witten, Crumpler, and maybe Shockey. He could be top 5 by the end of the year.
I think Clark is a great low-end TE this year that would take in a second if I could get him in Round 8.
