Thumbs up Who will be the Starting fullback???

Who will be the texans startin fullback they have 3 good choices

Moran-the best blockin fullback on the team without a doubt has recieving problems.

Baxter-Good reciever not a great blocker fast was a running back at New Mexico

and if they decide to put wells at fullback he may have a chance to start eventually if he shows if he can block cause he is big for a halfback 6'1 252lbs.
and he would be good for short yardage situations.

Norris will probably start but I still see Baxter on the roster. Wells just isnt physical enough to be a FB. And for short yardage situations, I see Baxter being the goal line back, he was a very good RB in college.

I see Hollings, Davis, Norris and Baxter after the final cut but Anderson could bump Baxter out....

Wells will make the final squad. Capers is very pleased with his approach this summer and he's a very good special teamer.

They do run the ace formation a lot, but I think they run 3 WR sets a little more. But even if you dont use FBs a lot you still need a good lead blocking FB on the roster...

No doubt Moran norris will start @ FB. Chris Palmer doesn't like involving FBs in his passing game. So Baxter or any other HB cant take away his job b/c simply hes the best by a significant margin in blocking.

I also see Wells making the team on Special Teams. So it will be Davis, Hollings, Norris, Wells, Baxter. Baxter could lose his job to jason Anderson. But i'm not sure if the Texans would keep 2 FBs and since baxter could lose the job of short-yardage rushing to Wells he might as well may not make the team.
