Who's our next Jordan Reed?

Postby NavetG8r » Sun Dec 16, 2012 10:36 am

The speculation is he's going to leave for the NFL. If that happens, who becomes our match-up nightmare TE? It sure as heck isn't Clay Burton. He can't catch. Do we have anyone ready to step in and take over?

Kent Taylor and Colin Thompson. Both are 6'5. Both were Frosh this year. Kent was the #1 TE on Rivals. Colin was #6. Colin was 250lbs coming in last year. Kent was a bit light at 225. I'm sure neither played because they had to learn the offense. In particular how to block. And I'm not sure their bodies were ready for that.

I guess we have to hope coach Dillman gets their bodies ready. Has anyone seen any sign they can catch? I can't remember anything from the spring game or practice reports off the top of my head that might give some hope one of those two can be a play-maker.

I guess I'm just nervous because even with Jordan's few flaws, he made a lot of big plays for us this year. If he goes to the NFL, that's a big weapon we're losing.

I believe Colin Thompson broke his foot in practice before the season..he was rated as a great blocking tight end out of college and he does have the weight to do the job. I have not heard any feedback on the status of his injury..if anybody knows put it here. You would think with all the coaches we could teach Clay to catch the ball when it hits him in the hands...

Didn't Clay play LBer in HS? I think it's a new position for him.

I think the two freshman are easy answers to this question (who's the next Reed?). But Burton has a chance to get a lot of snaps next year. He's an athlete, so I wouldn't be surprised if he's our best pass catching TE next year. However, I'd love to see the two freshman (sophmore's next year) live up to their potential.

On Reed: he should stay in school one more year. He's raw and could use another year of development.

None of the TE's on our roster have demonstrated the ability to jump for passes that are waist high so I guess we do not have another Jordan Reed

We are dangerously thin at TE.

Supposedly Kent Taylor will be better than Reed. What's his weight up to now?

Having three tight ends (all young) is great as we use a lot of heavy sets. My guess is they'll all get significant time. It is very good to be a Gator.

If we have a worthy TE coach, no player who can't block & catch
should touch the field. Isn't mastering your position something
the position coach is required to produce ? Those young Gators
need & deserve that.

Reed should stay due to the assurity that next year's offense will
increase in passing attack. I think Reed has a lot more to show
NFL evaluators ... & especially Mel Kiper.

If Westbrook stays, we have 4 scholarship TE's. Otherwise, we are very thin there. Obviously we'll see one or two of the OT's line up in the jumbo/heavy sets. But none of them are TE's.

We probably need to get another FB on the roster as well.

We'll have two fullbacks...just like this year. We probably don't have the space to dress 3 based off the fact that we only use one part of the time. I assume big, little Burton is the emergency fullback.

These two guys are looking solid physically. Saw them yesterday after graduation while I was taking pictures around campus.

That's great news. Rarely can a freshman come in and play TE. It's just a physically demanding position. Like O-lineman. Especially in a run heavy offense such as ours.

You may have meant that neither played a lot, but technically Kent played this year. I don't think Thompson did because of the aforementioned injury and (most likely) position on the depth chart. I only point this out to say that I think Kent will be a Soph. and Thompson will be a RF.

Wasn't the Zooker talking about Patchan playing some TE for us back in the day?
