That's an enormous steal unless we're talking about a TSN mock. Good to see the "soldier" didn't go AWOL very long.

Winslow

I would bet that after pre-season, If he stays healthy he would move into the #3 TE spot behind Gonz and Heap (Shockey notwithstanding). He was the 3rd taken in my first Yahoo 10 team standard live draft.

He was highly sought after prior to his signing, even when things were getting hairy between him and the team--now he's going to be impossible to draft (in most leagues) at a spot where he's worth taking.

You have an unproven commodity in an untested offense--how high can you get on this guy? At least the Giants had a running game (Barber) and a good receiver (Toomer) when Shockey came to town. So far, the Browns haven't shown us that they have anything.

Sure, if I see Winslow slip in some draft, I'll grab him, but I won't reach for him, and I think any single-digit rounds would be a reach on a rookie player in that offense. I doubt that Garcia is suddenly going to change his style and dump off to the TE all the time.

Sorry, I just don't see this kid putting up the numbers that people are hoping for. Take him, by all means, but take him with a grain of salt--and in a later round.


I think that Cleveland will look stupid to give him all that money and NOT make him a big part of their offense. I can see him being the #2 TE behind TGonz. In saying that Id still take Shockey ahead of him.

whats the big hype with shockey. granted he is better than everyone except the big 3 or 4. but the guy has only scored 4 tds in 2 seasons. yes he has been hurt but doesnt that down grade the guy. if i were to rank them i would go gonzo,heap,winslow, then shockey and i would really consider taking mcMichael is the fins didnt have all those problems.

I think the saddest part of the whole holdout thing is ole Kellen Sr.'s stance on it. When I was hearing about the holdout and the agents he hired, the Douchebag Brothers, I was thinking "What the hell is Sr. doing?" Why doesn't he slap some sense into the kid. I mean, after all, this is the guy who had to get carried off the field, not because he was injured, just because he left EVERYTHING on the field every time he stepped onto it. Kellen Sr. epitomized hard work and team spirit as a player. Then, I'm watching Outside the Lines last night and Kellen Sr.'s actually on his punk ass kid and his Gestapo agents' side. He said something to the effect of "he needs to get paid". Ridiculous. Believe me, the football gods will punish K2. I want to throw something through the TV every time I hear about these spoiled brat rookies holding out, demanding to be traded, etc., etc. Especially in the same year Pat Tillman showed the world that there is much more important things to worry about than a silly game. Whatever happened to team loyalty? Is a couple mil on top of a lot of mil really worth the entire country realized you're a complete jackass? Just venting a little. Holdouts make me physically ill.

Yeah, poor kid huh? It's a shame that him and Eli, both growing up as NFL kids, seem to have the worst attitudes among the newest class. Sadder still is the way their fathers are acting. And we wonder why fathers over pressure their kids in little leagues. Well, hell Archie and Kellen are doing it. I would like to think they would have more respect for the game than what they're showing.
