Anyone thinking of rostering the guy?

If Gonzo gets traded away, he would be the clearcut starting TE.

Already has been scoring TD's, a big red zone threat due to his size (6'8", big potential).

Had to share the spotlight at Stanford with Fleener and than Ertz.

Still went in the 4th round after playing behind those guys.

I get a TE I can start. Win/Win

Sounds like they are moving to 2 TE sets instead of 3-4 WR sets.  He's a big target, but as I understand he's a better blocker than he is a route runner.

Big time sleeper potential here with Toilolo, Atlanta is running out of guys to throw the ball to.  We'll see more 2 TE sets for sure. It's to their benefit to get him some on the job training anyway, as they drafted him to replace Tony G.  At 6'8 he is the tallest TE in the league and already a red zone threat  (2 touchdowns in the last 3 games, would have had one against the Patriots but he dropped it.)   Worth a speculative add if you're desperate for help at TE.

What will ATL do at TE next year? Once Julio went down and Roddy was out, I also thought they would go to more 2TE sets and see what Toilolo could do...but they seemed to use him less. Is ATL more of a 3WR, 1TE set offense of have they lost confidence in him already? Will they draft, bring in a veteran, or use him in the redzone as they did Gonzo?

This draft is full of TEs, I am sure they will adress it there. I believe they run 3 WR/1TE sets with Douglas in the slot but I could be wrong.
I am back!

So Julius, Davis, and even Cameron (if given a better QB) are a dime a dozen?

I wouldn't even touch Gronk until the middle or later in the draft.

This guy could be a sleeper for next season given his size, but I have a feeling many will expect Gonzo type numbers and be tremendously disappointed.

Toilolo is absolutely worth a look, with Gonzo hanging up the cleats. He made some promising plays, including some red zone TD's even when Gonzo was still on the field. Of course he's far from a lock, but the no-name that has no proven track record should be a cheap buy in next years draft. I'll pair him with a decent TE in a heartbeat next year, if I opt away from Gronk/Graham. Of course a lot of it speaks to how good Tony is, but Matty Ice and this offensive system can reap major benefits at the TE position.

ok so those guys are the 2nd tier.

2 guys in 1st tier (assume helathy gronk)
3 in the 2nd tier

then guys in olsen/cook range are so numerous there is almost always something close to them the waiver

zach sudfeld is just as big and fast and had a better qb. I will for actual results.  Size is not that hard to find in the NFL.

Hmmm. I was just making the comparison because both of them are known exclusively for scoring TDs. I didn't mean to make any sort of commentary on size.

I was refereing to toilolo, furia and sud all being big athletic guys and that meaning drastically less then people like to make it seem when they fall in love with a guy being he is tall.

there are tons of big tall fast guys but they have very different results.
