Forget Pettigrew

Let's not waste our 1st pick on Pettigrew. Yes he's talented, BUT this year's draft is deep at the TE position.  PLUS, if you exclude Tony Gonzalez, 1st round Tight Ends have historically had little more success in the NFL than 2nd and 3rd rounders.  Consider the (incomplete) list below.

1st Rd: Tony Gonzalez, Dallas Clark, Jeremy Shockey, Todd Heap, Bubba Franks, Kellen Winslow II, Vernon Davis, and Jerramy Stevens

2nd Rd: Alge Crumpler, John Carlson

3rd Rd: Jason Witten, Chris Cooley

4th Rd: Owen Daniels

5th Rd: Donald Lee

7th Rd: Shannon Sharpe

Undrafted: Antonio Gates
