I was one who had wished the Texans drafted Fleener but I wasn't disappointed about them getting Mercilus. I figured they wouldn't draft a TE that high anyway. This year I think is a deeper class of TE's and there are some taller ones (6'6"+) they can grab in the early and middle rounds that may turn out to be pretty good like Fauria and Kelce. With all the compensatory picks (maybe 4) the Texans should be able to get a good TE in the 3rd or 4th round at least.
