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.
Sorry dude, but that current trio sucks balls...
Kelce is a complete unknown, he may NEVER fully recover from the microfracture, those are notoriously hard to fix.
McGrath, so far, is the only proven decent player of the three... he's no great shakes but showed signs of being a viable #2 with decent all around skills.
Fasano though? dude has been an absolute bust for us and sucked during his last year in Miami as well... 8.1ypc is AWFUL, its just awful, and he didn't do much better than that during his brief healthy periods here, we could cut him today and I wouldn't blink an eye.
Dump him and get a young playmaker in the draft, THATS a trio I could live with.
