Now rookie TEs..... They can just... piss up a rope until they are like 26/27?
The game has changed. They draft these RBs with the thought of using them up during their cheap rookie contracts. If they are great then they get a 2nd contract and if not then they use another 3rd round pick and get some fresh legs. The WRs are probably more the result of how many passes are thrown now, as the hit rates do not seem to be that much higher IMO, just that there are now 50-70 WR3s these days.
With all due respect to Zuggy, the TEs still suck early on. Bringing up 4 guys who were good their first year kinda ignores the dozens of guys drafted in those years who did not produce.
