Michael Mayer 2023 NFL Draft Prospects


Recommended Posts

Would love to see him play for the Bengals, but I don't think he's going to last that long. Would be a perfect fit long-term in between Chase and Higgins, especially on a cheap rookie deal when those two and Burrow are about to get paid. Great player that I think is more valuable today with his blocking ability vs all the 2 high defenses in the NFL than maybe a couple years ago.

You can usually get a decent TE in free agency pretty cheap every year (Hurst) so I don't think the Bengals would spend a 1st round pick on him unless he tumbled down the draft board. I'd love to see him on our team though. I'm a little concerned that he'll end up in a place like Pittsburgh.

You’re no doubt correct. As long as Joe, Jamarr and Tee are healthy we are going to have a top 8 offense at least. We can plug a guy like Hayden in there and be fine.

I think looking at Mike, there aren’t any 265 lb TE’s in the league right now that can line up as an inline Y or split out and win with quickness, size and route running vs man coverage. Combine that with his after the catch play strength and blocking ability and I think there is a chance he ends up a multiple time first team all pro TE. I just hope he ends up in a good situation with a good QB.

Me too, I want what is best for Mike.  Just please don't beat the Bengals, that will be a tough one but I will still be happy for him.

I'm thinking a good NFC West team like the Seahawks, I think we get them at home next year. This was we can see him in Cincy and then he can't kill us year in and year out.

.... because everyone knows that the Bengals can't cover a tight end!
