Wells is 245 lbs and can't punch his way through a paper bag. IMO talent counts for more and if you really have to throw a big chunk of meat at the line then put Baxter in with Norris lead blocking. At this point the Texans already have three large backs with Wells, Baxter and Norris. Three large and two regular seems a lot more balanced than Four large and one regular IMO.
