I was just reading a real interesting article here over at rivals.com about the the new shift in teams drafting more tight-ends. Even though Vernon Davis is not mentioned in the article, I have to think that he is the catalyst in this new way of thinking among NFL teams. We saw what he was able to do last year with regards to match-ups, but I think a lot of teams also saw the kind of potential he had for setting up mismatches, before he even broke out last year. He can single-handedly force defenses to do what they don't want to do. Raye also used two tight-end sets extremely effectively .... and as we all know, it's a copy-cat league.
I am curious to see how many teams will employ two tight-end sets this year. I tried looking it up, but I could not find a definitive answer to who used two-TE sets last year, other than the Niners. I know teams were doing it, but not sure about specifics. Anyways, it's something worth discussing and fun to talk about.
