Overall Strategy

Best Pick(s)

Travis Kelce, 2.12, TE2 – Bear was shrewd to prioritize Kelce at 24 overall. He wouldn’t be around in Round 4, and he legitimately valuates right around this spot anyway (though he’s currently going around 30 in MFL10s). No tight end on the board boasts a higher floor – it’s hard to imagine him winding up with less than third-round value – and the ceiling to outdo even Rob Gronkowski himself. Gronkowski finds himself in a crowded offense and, as usual, an injury question mark, while Kelce towers over the Kansas City passing game and hasn’t missed a game as a pro. I have to applaud Bear for taking the stab, snatching up almost certain WR2 numbers at a TE position that looks as volatile as ever.
