IMO i draft them before a kicker and i draft my defense last in the draft meaning i dont draft a kicker because they are unreliable so pick one off the FA. I would draft my TE near the 10th round if the top 3 arent there

TE are more valuable than defenses, which I would probably draft around the 10th round. Kickers should go after that because of their inconsistency from year to year.

How did you get that team?

If Gonzo and company are gone, I would go strongest D. Most TE's are on the second level. If the upper echilon has been depleeted go after the D that is on top of your list. If both are second tier then I go TE.

That's what i did.

I was the first team to draft a D...but with 4 or 5 mid range TE's left i figure id rather have great defense and a shot at that mid range TE than that mid range TE and a shot at a lesser D.
