Game film seems to be the big issue with Poe. I've read/heard several times that there is no game footage on him out there yet, which I find hard to believe. I would think that Memphis has some kind of video documentation person/crew for coaches and players to review game film to critique how the players are doing.

As for speed and quickness, I think Wade likes them pretty quick off the snap. If Poe blows them away at the Combine with his quickness, it might be too much for Wade to pass on. I just wonder how motivated Poe is. Is he a high motor guy? Somehow I don't get that impression yet. Still some questions to be answered and some should be answered at the Combine. JMO.

You say you have not seen footage, but you dont think he is a high motor guy? How did you come to that assumption?

Poe is a high motor guy, and has adequate quickness. By all accounts he works hard in both the weight room and in video.

And I would like people to stop believing the fallacy that Wade prefers small NTs. He works with what he has. In his 4 stops prior to Houston, Wade had 2 larger NTs and 2 smaller NTs, which shows no favoritism either way.

If you want some game film check out Paulson when Oregon plays Wisconsin Monday. It has been somewhat dissapointing this year from the TE position, thinking it was one of Texans strongest offensive positions. Haven't really checked the numbers but Owen Daniels fantasy value seems like its dropped while a guy like Gronkowski takes league by storm in only his second year. The TE has a real high value in Kubiak's offense, this trend needs to reverse itself & Paulson is an upgrade to Dreessen who is a free agent.

Both Fuller & Blake had great bowl games. Fuller seemed like he caught almost every targeted throw snatching 7 for 117 yards & back-corner NFL caliber TD to send Aggie's ahead for good. Excellent hands, concentration to finish play.

Blake was a beast. He pretty much stoned Alameda Ta'amu. He was so dominant in fact that Ta'amu just released downfield to try & make a play.

Both remain solid picks for the Texans where I have them selected.

Happy New Year

It seems to me that Dreesen has taken away TDs from OD. I had OD on my fantasy team, and watching games OD would move us down the field and JD seemed to catch TDs. I think you have to factor the QB situation in as well. I like Paulson, but with OD, JD, Casey (I think he'll see some reps at TE next year - but that's pure speculation) I don't see picking a TE. If we do Paulson's a nice player. I'd also like to see Graham get a little pt.

Think of it as more BPA. Rick Smith has done this more than once. Two examples that come to mind where Connor Barwin who had a first rd. Grade & Casey despite drafting TE previous round.

Thanks for your feedback!
