Hopefully at 5-1 you will hear the name A.C. Leonard called, a big fast athletic TE in the Gates/Graham mold. This will represent a change in the Texans drafting philosophy.

I yield to your knowledge.

I do wonder if surgery in athletes might not be overdone though. While not an accountant, my son did well as a 6'7" 320 lb. guy on his feet a lot without surgery. But perhaps it was a minor bone in the foot as opposed to a more significant one.

I'm 100% on board with Leonard in the 5th but I'm fairly certain you have his mold wrong.

Gates is 2 inches taller than Leonard and is a pure in-line TE with receiving ability. Graham is 5 inches taller and is more like a giant sized slot WR.

Leonard is neither of those and is only 6-2 252. That's not great size for a pro TE. He is very athletic though. His size and skill set are very similar to Aaron Hernandez. Which is fine. Leonard would fit here very well as the move TE while Griffin takes over as the Y.

Yep

For some reason I thought Leonard was 6'4.

My bad, guy can run, and has great hands. Was highly decorated coming out of HS.

He's got a shot to be really good if he can keep his head on straight. I'd take a shot on him.

Really looking forward to seeing griffin in this offense. I think he's going to explode in the next couple of years

Very curious statement. If it were for muscle, you would expect that he (and O'brien) would want to maintain it. If it were fat, you would expect that he (and O'brien) would want to lose it much quicker that by the end of 2014. The only thing that might make sense is that the "expects to lose it" would be a facetious reference to the fact that he would be working so hard (because O'brien's heavy use of TEs) that it would be difficult to maintain the extra bulk through the season?

What happened i think was, they quit making Twinkies. Well when they began making them again, him like me went on a twinkie bing which is not good for an athlete, nor my bed room time with the old lady. But a man has to do what he has to do. That's my theory.
