Collins is a project. He isn't going to see the field much and he was taken before Hodgdon in any case. I was one of the guys who wanted a back early so I'm very happy we took Morency.

Morency was rated by some as the 4th best back in the draft (ahead of Arrington) prior to running a 4.6 at the combine. I think he was a very good pick for the Texans. Our RB depth was severely lacking. I personally don't think much of Wells as a backup.

If the Texans wanted a TE they should've taken Joel Dreessen TE RD 6 pick 198, instead of S C.C. Brown....or Kevin Everett TE RD 3 pick 86....but, they obviously liked our TE situation.

But, I agree with the RB pick, Hollings hasn't proved anything yet and Wells doesn't exactly have the coaches confidence when Davis is hurt.

I'm not sure if I agree that Morency was a STEAL in round three, but, I am glad that they drafted him and not Maurice Clarett.

i think that wells is a suitable backup. there was talk last offseason about him taking a shot at the FB position and i think this season they think he might have a shot at it with it being norris' position.

IMO the texans took morency because they have doubts with hollings. i can see the backfield including norris, wells, davis, and morency. they still might want to work with hollings though.

i cant see that, sorry

and as for our TE solution, well im clueless and just hope who we have now can get the job done. and with the new offense they wont really be NEEDING the position as often as one was needed last season; however im not certain to how the "new-style" offense will require a legit TE

I guess I should have explained myself better.

Wells does have the coaches confidence as far as, playing Special Teams and willing to contribute wherever necessary.........but, he does not have their confidence in being a backup that can come in and put together good production for multiple games if DD goes down.

If Davis was to get injured in week 1 for the season, the coaching staff or GM didn't think that Wells was the answer or they wouldn't have picked a RB in Round 3.

That said, I like Wells and I think that its great how he's working on different aspects of his game to keep helping the team in any way that he can.

i can see what you mean and i feel that he is able to effectively contribute for a while (situational to a couple of quarters to even a game or two), but he is not an answer to our RB needs.
