According to PFF when Dreessen was with the Texans he in fact graded out as a Top 3 Run Blocking TE. If know anything about or have studied Alex Gibbs and his ZBS then you would know how important Gibbs thinks and uses a good blocking TE in his running game. It is no coincidence that running game has declined since Dreessen and Gibbs have departed.
The Texans missed Dreessen, that's for sure, but they can't afford him with Graham already on the roster.
Graham isn't far off from Dreessen in blocking, anyway.
We just didn't have a real FB last year, and both Foster and Tate have not been healthy this year.
