    Love both these guys.
    Both will be difficult if not impossible to replace.
    We may never see another tight end than can do the things Pitts could do.
    We will miss Trask but EJ is going to surprise people next year with his passing. His running will add an element to the Offense that will make it difficult to defend.

    Until he gets broken in half. That’s my fear.

      I love the Rat, and because I do, I will give you good advice: Lower your expectations for next season. Significantly.

        I completely agree. If Trask isnt coming back we wont be all that great. Wouldnt hurt to give EJ the bowl game.

          I like you too King, kind of. The Bad News Bears , F Troop type mentality you find here on your board is refreshing.
          However next year at this time when the Gators are 11-1 and were comparing KJ to Tyler Murry I expect you to say "Rat told us so".

            So the defense will be lights out next year and losing Trask, Pitts, and Toney will only help us? Sober up.

            We're looking at a 5 or 6 loss season.

            Recent mock drafts are moving Toney into the bottom of the first round. Kyle is more consistently in the first round. Teams like the Saints, Pats, and Steelers taking him. Pitts is listed anywhere from 4-20.

              Toney is moving up, his combine will be a huge money maker for him. Toney and Trask have to kill their combines.

                The criticism of Toney is that he is quick, but not fast. I don't think Toney is running a 4.3. I'd be stunned if he ran a 4.6 like critics are claiming. Trask going to a team like the Saints or Pats would be perfect. Pitts is a lock for the first round. It is just a matter of how high. I see Mac Jones in the first round. No freakin way am I taking a QB who has sat in the pocket with rarely any pressure.

                  toney won't 40 well, but he will shuttle run well. I have seen Pitts as high as 5 which is amazing for a tight end. Trask wouldn't be a good fit for the Pats (due to weather) but the Colts or Saints would be a great fit.

                  No chance Pitts gets out of the top 10. None.

                  The bengals are the only team he has a chance of going to in the top 10. The lions, eagles, giants, and broncos all have outstanding tight ends. They aren’t taking a second one. The panthers are taking a QB.

                    Someone may trade up to get him.

                    He isn't King.

                    King only shows up every now and again. Usually when Mullenz has another WTF moment.

                      I've seen the Eagles on the list of teams that might take him, because they are losing Ertz and tight ends are an important part of their offense.

                        You are absolutely hammered. Drunk as hell. It's possible someone trades up, but there's no chance he gets out of the top 10. He's considered the biggest weapon at TE in years - he's a matchup nightmare.

                        Holy crap, a lot of mock drafts have the Jets taking Justin Fields at #2. Justin Fields! Has there ever been a bigger potential bust of a pick than that? The guy wouldn't be ready if he sat behind a veteran for 5 years. Instead, the Jets will throw him out there with no weapons around him. What a disaster.

                          I've been up since 4:45am. Of course I'm hammered.


                          I can't believe you just typed this. :headslap:
                          I love watching Pitts. He's one of the best collegiate tight end I have ever seen and I'm not saying that because he is a gator. But, no one is trading up into the top 10 to take a tight end. It would be historic if they did. I'm not sure it has ever happened.

                          Pitts is a historic TE. His HOF bust is already being made up.
