Joppru is (was?) a combo TE, for lack of a better term. Big enough to block inline, quick enough to beat LBs in coverage. The formation you described with Joppru & Miller is exactly what the Texans practiced early in the '03 camp prior to Bennie's initial groin injury.

I still think a guy with Joppru's skills is the missing link in this offense. Better blocker than Miller, can uncover better than Bruener, can be a great option on 3rd & short playaction. I know Casserly thinks that Joppru will see the field this season, I guess we'll find out if that's true.
