The report is that TJ is likely to stay in Cincinnati
Porter may be on his way out of Oakland though.

I'm not really familiar with Porter. Would he be a better pick-up than taking someone from the draft?

Admittedly I haven't watched much UVA football, but the couple of times I saw them play Miller didn't stand out as a Tony Gonzalez, Kellen Winslow, Jeremy Shockey type of athlete. Granted 2 of the 3 haven't done dick in the NFL, but they were one of the best offensive weapons in all of college football when they played. I don't see Miller in their league. I may have exaggerated on how slow he is.

Heath Miller keeps a much lower profile than the Shockeys and Winslows also. I don't know. I definitely think he will be a force when he enters the NFL.

Miller was not as effective this year because our quaterback sucked. Instead he just blocked extrememly well and never said a word. But last year as a sophmore with Schaub at quaterback he tore it up. He is gonna be up there with the elite at tightend believe me.

Don't draft Heath Miller

Why?

Two words: Chris Cooley.

End of story.

I agree. If Cooley hadn't panned out I'd quickly change my point of view but he did, just needs to strengthen his blocking skills. And while Miller may not have the speed of a Tony G., Winslow, or Antonio Gates, Miller is a very solid blocker and hands that act like they've got stickem on them cuz he catches practically everything in sight. but even if Gibbs is hankering for another TE, I don't think he'd be foolish enough to use a top 10 pick on one unless he was an absolute stud especially with way more pressing needs in other positions like wr, center, guard, and de(possibly also cb.) like I've been saying since last spring, the main uva player I'd like to see us pick up is Chris Canty and we could possibly do so with a 3rd or 4th round pick. Plus A. Brooks and Blackstock are beasts at lb but hopefully they are staying another year.

Cooley isn't our TE, he's our Hback. I'm looking for a TE that's a dominating blocker with good hands so Ramsey can dump off. We often play with a TE, and though I think royal is sufficient for some time, if we can get a deal on a good TE this year I'd take it. Miller is what I'm looking for, but may be taken too early for my likes. We have more important needs for our #1 pick.

Miller could be a good addition, however not at #9, especially since he is not a Gonzalez/Heap type TE.

Miller (6'5", 255) isn't as big as Cooley (6'3", 265)...but he's about as big as Robert Royal, our current TE (6'4", 257)...

Cooley is definitely our H-Back...he progressed very well at that position. Royal will pan out as a good TE, not a top tier, but a hard nosed guy who will be a workhorse for Gibbs...drafting Miller at 9 doesn't make sense...especially when we have other needs to fill.

I was surprised to see heath miller is one of the top 10 ranked players as of now for the draft by Mel Kiper. I think the list even showed him as the 4th rated player but I'm not sure if the list they showed was an actual ranked list.

If he's going in the first round, I would say pass on him. We a couple things that are huge needs on our team that we have to adress in the first round (WR/DE).

If we dont get a new TE before next season, I'll be happy as a clam to have Royal lining up for us. I think he earned the shot this season, to be a starter next year. He's at least a solid guy for the job. Like was mentioned, if we could get a good TE, we shoudl, however, just if we can after we take care of other things.
