Heap to be Moved Around.

Postby Guttpuppy » Thu Jun 12, 2003 2:24 pm

ON ONE PLAY, Ravens All-Pro tight end Todd Heap is in the backfield. On another, he is in the slot. On another, he becomes a split end. The Ravens can use him from the line of scrimmage or in motion. They have him in short patterns as well as long and intermediate ones.

And then there are the alley-oops, the ones in which Heap would bring down to choruses of "Heap!" that echo throughout the Ravens' stadium.

But last season, his second after a rookie year as Shannon Sharpe's understudy, Heap had a coming-out party, catching 68 passes for 836 yards and six touchdowns. Everybody knows about him now. Every team knows he is the central figure in the team's passing game.

So the Ravens have a new strategy for Heap in 2003. They want to play hide-and-seek.

More on this here.

Tightend Rankings

Postby NFLknowitall » Thu Jun 12, 2003 2:45 pm

He is a top 3 Tightend. I'm still having trouble ranking my top three TE's. Is it Gonzo, Heap or Shockey? Who will have a bigger season. Gonzo is really up and down, Heap has QB issues and Shockey is just a freaking mad man. What do you guys think?

He is a TE that puts up WR numbers, I like it. I think its great they move him around, but at the end of the day he is a MAJOR target and so any team knows they have to watch out for him.

As far as ranking the top 3 TE's

I'd go

Gonzo
Heap
Shockey

But i'd be happy to get any single one of them ;-D

McMichael deserves consideration as well. He was on a tear last year until the Fiddler went down. With a healthy pass attack all season he could do some damage this year.

id rank them:

shockey
heap
gonzo - only b/c of the ups and downs the team has when priest is on/off the field.

mcmikey is a good te and if the qb situation stabilizes, i think he will be much more productive in their offense. he is definitely a good sleeper in my eyes...
