In PPR, he and Graham will be #1 and 2 TE taken. I predict third round.

I can see third as well. Maybe late second? Next year seems like a year where I'll want to wait a round or two after those guys get taken and grab a player like Witten. I see more value there then I do by taking a TE in the 2nd or 3rd round.

I doubt I would draft him before the 3rd round, but I also don't think he will make it that far. In a PPR league I'm gonna guess his ADP is top 5 (I believe only Rice outscored him this year). Non PPR I'm thinking he will be early second. Too expensive for me.

There is absolutely no way he is a top-5 pick in the upcoming 2012 Fantasy Football season.

We shall see. PPR league he is a lock for first round and I still think he will go top 5.

Third round. TE in first or second round is just... blasphemy to this old FFB'er.

Arrrrgh! I can remember only a few years ago drafting TEs in the 4th or 5th round and having my choice of Gates or Gonzo. Took a few years for people to see the value there. Like you, though, I just cannot spend that high a pick. Just seems so wrong.

Gronk going to set receiver TD record this year? Wait, maybe he would be worth drafting at the turn in round 1/2 :-?

Anyone who spends a first round pick on a TE deserves the bottom of the rankings that they will end up in.

I'm in a very TE favorable league (5 point bonus after 75 yards receiving. PPR, etc.) and the TEs didn't start to go until round 4. No matter how good a TE may be, you still have to take a good RB and QB before them.
