2023 Player Outlook
Mike McDaniel brought his offensive scheme with him from San Francisco - a scheme that utilizes a two-way tight end who can block like George Kittle. That's why we saw Durham Smythe play 557 snaps to 478 for Mike Gesicki. The issue for Smythe is that he was also asked to block on 35% of his pass plays in an offense that features Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill. That number needs to drop under 15% for him to have relevancy in 2023 and that would be a big change.
