As far as the Texans' pick is concerned. I am a fan. I wanted a TE last year, and Eiffert fits the Fleener mold.

Important to note draft order is based off week 9 John McClain power rankings, not team records. I could see both the Giants or Falcons taking Eifert if available if things change who I have graded slightly ahead of last years #34th draft selection, Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener. Currently slotted four WR's drafted before Texans selection, Allen, Hunter, Patterson & Woods (this years Kendall Wright). Then there is a drop-off just like last year so we're looking @ another Brian Quick, Stephen Hill, Jeffery Alshon, Rueben Randle model.....

Tyler Eifert is a sure thing. Really bolsters & fits seamlessly into Texan TE rotation while improving inline blocking & shading the tackle position for better pass pro. Eventually, maybe sooner than later, would prove to be equal if not superior weapon to our own Dallas Clarke clone, Owen Daniels. The key is improvement in blocking scheme, like adding a quality OT to help Newton or shutdown another teams top speed rusher. Supreme route runner, smart, fundamental sound hand position (ball never gets into body uses hands) & excellent footwork.
