Is it possible that Niles Paul is moving to TE?
And then there is this...

Interesting nugget from #Redskins workouts: I'm hearing that Niles Paul has been working / meeting with Washington's TE group this week.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) April 19, 2012
Paul moving to TE, plus Gaffney being released or trade, plus the hopeful inevitability of Banks getting cut would lighten up the WR's on the roster. If so, those who believe a WR will be drafted may be close to an I told you so.
But pump the brakes! Paul is 6'1" 224lbs with small hands. Isn't there a trend of TE's being bigger (taller and stronger)? If this is his "secret" then I have to trust that Shanahan knows what he is doing. Or it may be a case of "hey, learn another position or face being cut." Let's remember they moved Sellers to TE last year as well.
