Nice way to get people's attention. I trust you're talking out your ass to get people to read further.

Anyway, I like Boo Williams a lot. Also, I like B Chamberlain in Denver, an offense that's accustomed to utlizing a TE well -- and Chamberlain is in good shape this year for a change.

As far as Gonzo's, Heap's, shockey's, and Winslow's; I'll probably not get a shot at these guys in a draft sicne I'll still be taking valuable position players. But one never knows, someone could take a flyer on Emmitt Smith in the 6th round and Winslow Jr could fall in my lap.

Kleinsasser is the better pick...

I thought I was reading about another tight end in Minny? I could be wrong. Klein is going to get you average numbers in an offense that needs to get the ball to Moss and Bennett. Johnson has more athletic ability and IF he can stay healthy, is playing in an offense that will need to get the ball to somebody - a young QB that will probably rely on his TE a lot. Johnson might be worth taking a late flyer on.

When he's healthy, Johnson is one of the better athletes at the TE position in the league and definitely one of the better pass catching options. Kleinsasser certainly is in a good system and seemingly has a good situation but the passing options up there are #1: R. Moss, #2: R. Moss, #3: R. Moss. If you want a guy that could break out (for a TE at least), go Johnson.

Kleinsasser is very versitile. He can catch the ball and he runs too. Maybe 400 catching at 120 rushing with 4-5 total touchdowns.

What about that guy from the Rams, Brandon Manumaleuna (sp?)... anybody think he's worth a shot? I think maybe Bulger will have to look at him as a quick outlet a little more with that banged-up O-Line they have...

He's always been a disappointment to the Rams. He drops too many balls to be effective.

Manumaleuna is not a good option. At the beginning of camp he was more nimbler than usual and running more precise routes. But he has only dissapointed since by making careless errors.
