How so? I see a slower TE with a large catch radius and limited blocking. That sounds a lot like Tony.
Because the thing about Tony is that he is those things but is still effective because he has extremely precise route-running ability and extremely soft hands. He catches everything and doesn't even ever fumble (which BTW is the most underrated stat of all-time!) Tony is essentially a perfectionist with how much he strives for diet supremacy, how much he preparation he has for games, etc.
That's why if the team was trying to develop a player like Tony, they should have drafted a tight end several years ago so that he would have time and experience to work towards that polished
But expecting a second-year player, especially a "raw" prospect like Toilolo to come in and do those things is foolish, or extremely lucky that you just managed to find the "Andrew Luck" to your "Peyton Manning" in the fourth round
no less as opposed to the very first pick in the draft.
Thus if you had a "plan" for Toilolo, you wouldn't put him in that predicament where he'll have to be the Jason Witten-esque rarity of a mid-round pick that turns into that player. Instead it would rather be tailoring the offense to what his strengths were, which was playing in a "power" double-TE offense at Stanford that is similar to Harbaugh-coached 49ers: an offense geared around the power run game, also akin to what the Falcons were in 2008.
That would make sense with the emphasis on drafting larger offensive linemen, but would not make sense with what the team has done at the skill positions by investing in players like Harry Douglas, Jacquizz Rodgers, and previously Tony, all of whom have ceilings on how good they can be in that offense. The former two being merely effective role players, and with the latter being tailor-made for that style.
People in the past have called this nitpicking, but moves like these can ultimately be the difference in going to and/or winning a Super Bowl, where someone like Doug Baldwin can make a pivotal play in a big game, while your guy gets mugged on a slant route which leads to a game-sealing pick-six.
My suspicion that a lot like me, they really fell in love with Toilolo's potential during his junior season where Luck was his QB and envisioned they were hopefully drafting that player. And the reason that they didn't play him that much once Chase Coffman got healthy was due to fact that he was not at all
this player. Which wouldn't have been hard to figure out if you had watched him as a senior.
