A real in line FB is not what MLF desires in his system.
MLF's desires and reality still haven't aligned, though, after 3 years. Does he really want a blocking TE, a receiving TE, and a TE/FB who mainly blocks to have to split the duties OR would he really like 2 TE's with speed & hands who can block AND
catch? Seems ridiculous to have such specialized TE's littering the roster. When Deguara is in the game the opposing D pretty much assumes it's a running play, so why not have a real FB (who can actually block a DE or LB) lead the way?
MLF desires to have a roster full of fast guys, in motion to create confusion, but that can also block and catch... has he really had that over the last 3 years? He has that in Tonyan & is trying to get that with Davis.
Instead of Deguara in the 3rd round Gute passed on Adam Trautman, who led the league in '21 for TE's with a blocking grade of 84.1. Also passed on Albert Okwuegbunam who ran a 4.49 40, is a natural hands-catcher. Both guys are 6'-5"+, 250+ and can catch AND block better than Deguara. I really don't know that MLF knows what he wants from this position, which is why he doesn't get much success from the TE position.
