but I'm not sure you'd have every TE running every TE route

I guess what I'm speculating on is that everyone is assuming Niklas will "step into" Eifert's role, but if we look at the routes he ran last year (bootleg outlets), and see that they have him bulked up to 270, Niklas may not be a guy you put in the slot or wide and run him on go sideline routes. If Niklas is that big, I expect him to be an inline/backfield blocker and release on play action, with other guys (like Welch) doing the nifty downfield routes.

New prop bet: among tight ends, Niklas will NOT have the most receptions in '13.
