Bottom line on TEs is the Texans are mediocre at best. They definitely need a #1 TE going forward. Evans, Ebron, Sefarian-Jenkins and Amaro should all be be 1st or 2nd rd considerations. The Texans running game has declined since Dreessen left and was never replaced with a Top notch blocking TE. A very good blocking TE was a main cog and one of the most pieces to the success of Alex Gibbs ZBS.
I don't think we know what we have in Graham or our rookie just yet. Remember Schaub has been the QB. Let's see what happens now that we have someone who will look for them.
Dreeson was not a top notch blocking TE. He was good but not great. Don't really think having a top notch blocking TE has ever been as important as you suggest. This offense is at its best when it has a TE that is at least a good seal off blocker and can get behind defenses when we run bootlegs. Ala Shannon sharpe.
