TE is too important in this offense, and to Smith, to leave to chance IMO.
I don't think a tight end rotation of Fasano, Kelce and McGrath is leaving it to chance.
Consider that McGrath effectively played only one year of college football at a school smaller than most average high schools and was quite effective in getting open, catching the ball and turning up-field against NFL defenders in what was his rookie season. That speaks of a whole hell of a lot of upside yet to come.
And Fasano is a very solid all-around NFL tight end.
If Kelce is cleared medically, I have absolutely no qualms about fielding that trio as our TE group and think that using a draft pick on a tight end is tantamount to throwing it in the trash bin. Especially after using a very high third on Kelce in last years draft.
Now, if Kelce still has medical issues, then, by all means, I hope that they select a tight end.
