Before we get carried away with all the "Gronk" references, let the kid play an actual NFL down before we give him nicknames. :)

He needs to earn that nickname in the NFL IMO.

Greg "Third Leg" Olson got his before playing in the NFL.

It was reported that Shaheen was the Broncos pick if he had been there 6 picks later. So, no, he wouldn't have been available later.


I don't know if I buy that. Anyway, Denver drafted Jake Butt 100 picks later.


100 picks later because he'll start the season on PUP and so won't play until October if he plays at all this season.

I live in Denver and they were definitely high on him. Local media people plugged into the team thought they were targeting him there. They were bummed when he went off the board.


Yet he'll still probably get a start before Shaheen.



Not sure about getting a start, but being a matchup nightmare I expect he will get looks on 3rd down and other passing downs from day 1.

Sneak him into a 2 TE set with this personnel:

Meredith, White, Cohen, Miller Sheehan
Or go 0 RB and throw Wheaton or Wright out there in the slot or a set of trips

Things could get fun this year even without a bona fide WR1

Is it me, or does he look a bit stiff and uncomfortable? Something, I don't know. Maybe it was the footage, I'm looking forward to seeing him against NFL guys...

He's a big boy and I think he lumbers a bit at times... can argue he's a bit top-heavy. We have to remember he's only been this size for 3-4 years, if that. I'm expecting more out of him in 2018 than 2017.

True..... which makes me kinda want Miller to stay and do something. He will likely get hurt at some point. But kinda a stopgap till...

He has very little definition on his body. If he can "redshirt", and live in the weight room for a year, that would benefit him immensely.

Definition don't mean nothin'.
They're football players not Olympic posers.
