The problem isnt a lack of production based on opportunity , its the near total lack of the TE being used in the Offense . There is a lot wrong with how the Texans go about their busines on that side of the ball . And the biggest concern there is the O-Line not getting it done in the running game , everything else feeds off ot that . Miller has shown he can can catch the ball , Bruener that he can block . Not every team has a Tony Gonzales @ the TE position. Nor do you need that type of TE to win .
Billy Miller is a poor blocker, and average recieving TE. he had numbers in the texans first year because there was noone else on the offense, not because he was a good player.
Bruenner was a good blocker. At this point in his career, he is mediocore because of age and previous injuires.
the only "wasted" pick is Joppru because of bad luck injury and he is still an if.
In 3 years we picked one TE in the draft. The Texans have not invested a lot of money not draft picks in the position and have the mediocore results to show for it. The production from this position is adequate at best.
At what position do the Texans have worse overall talent?
