John MiddleKauff doesn't think so. The former scout for the eagles RAVED about our two new tight ends.
Rivera will play more of a Aaron Hernandez role (bad timing I know)... move him around, matchup vs LBs/SS... TUFF Cover
But Kasa has BIG TIME upside - talking about a kid 6-6 270 4.70 who only played 1 year @ TE. Hes bigger than Gronk!
Depending on QB obviously - I could see Rivera catching 40/50 balls.
Rivera is another example of the 40... ran a 4.8 but got open vs Georgia and Florida. So what is more important to you?
Paraphrasing Belichick - People don't come to see guys run, jump, & lift on Sunday - they come to watch them play football!
Rivera is a just a savvy route runner, what VG during practice @ the SR bowl, while the Raiders had the chance to coach Kasa that wk
@JMiddle365 this is true. After covering all the OTAs, Rivera's speed and route running got him open quite often.
The #raiders are headed in the right direction, just need to stick behind Reggie, and obviously find the QB of the future
Sorry for the copy/paste job but i figured some of you might enjoy reading this as much as i did. Optimistic!
