Best pick: Owen Daniels, Texans (Wisconsin) -- This guy is really, really good, a possession receiver who makes a huge impact in the red zone. He's a little on the small side, but he's a competent blocker as well.

Nice Find! I thought Daniels was a hell of a pick.

When we picked him, I went Uhhh? We had Putz, so what do we need another TE for when we had soooo many holes to fill. Now, I think it was a great pick.

I'm trying to remember - what round did we get him in?

Owen Daniels has been a great boon to the Texans. I am nicely surprised at how well the draft class is performing in their first year, and I can only look forward to even better play in the upcoming years.

First pick of the fourth round.

Very nice read. I love the fact we have OD. He seems like a great guy as well. I look forward to reading his weekly diary on the Texans website every week. I still think Davis will be a good TE, but I'm stoked we ended up with OD.:bananasplit:

After Marques Colston, maybe Owen is the best value pick in this years Draft ?
BTW, we need to get this guy an interesting, colorful nickname. "Owen" does
not sound like a TEs name. He studied Meteorology at Wisconsin. Maybe we call him the "Weatherman" ? But that's not very origional ? Surely
a more creative mind can come up with a good idea ? We can't have a TE named Owen. Don't want to dis the parents, I'm sure they love the name they gave their son.

He's also mentioned in this article towards the end. Jist is start him on your fantasy team and that he is under rated.

It looks like we're gonna have to give Owen a nickname too.

There was one other mention of Daniels this week in the national media, but I can't remember exactly where. Either way, he is getting a ton of pub as of late.

If Kubiak could teach Carr to throw the ball down the middle to him... oh, the possibilities...

DeMeco was the BVP in the 2006 draft :)

A little jab at some of you just to remind you this was a Casserly pick based on what Kubiak has said.

Yes and no.

Casserly this year was picking for a particular offensive philosophy.

Tight Ends coach Brian Pariani values very intelligent, athletic, tight ends who can both block and catch. He likes ex-QBs. He says that on offense, the three positions he expects to know the most are QB, center and TE. Kubiak's system values TEs more than some other offenses do.

I am guessing Casserly pimped the pick based on what they were looking for. And what they already had.

Oooooooh, had to bring up "he who shall not be named". :tease:


Daniels is great, and a steal in the 4th. I think in a few years we will see this draft class as the one that kicked this team into the right gear.

Would you have preferred they name him "Sage?"
