According to PFF In 2011 when Dreessen was a Texans he was rated in the Top 3 in TE in Run Blocking.

And then add on to it that we didn't have dressn last year anyways we wont be any worse.
In 2010 & 2011 when the Texans were at their very best at running the football, Dreessen was the primary blocking TE, Leach/Vickers were the blocking FBs and Brisel and Winston were on the right side. In 2012 Texans run game DECLINED and the above 5 were no longer Texans. There will be plenty of excuses and rationale to explain the decline but in the end, it is what it is.
