Cole Kmet/Jimmy Graham
Optimist: Kmet learns not only well but quickly and shows an instinct for the nuances of the tight end position in Nagy’s offense. That helps produce the offensive diversity and conflict-of-assignment that creates opportunities for the 33-year-old Graham, who has his best season in the NFL since his glory days with the Saints.
Pessimist: Kmet needs time to learn the nuances of the tight end position in Nagy’s offense and doesn’t have enough speed to accelerate the growth process. Graham can’t create his own opportunities, which makes him useless.
