I was against David Thomas before the championship game, but after watching him block and make some acrobatic catches, i have changed my view. Thomas in the fourth.

I think that the lack of a good TE is really hurting this team. A good TE can be a great security blanket for a QB.

I would be all in favour of this if the Texans draft Vince Young I would even consider one of the premier TE's like Pope if the Texans drafted Young he uses them alot when reading the defense & checking off his options. can you imagine all 6050 233 lb Vince Young teaming with 6070 255 lb Leonard Pope

i thought he was 6'8, not that it matters at that height.

I wouldnt mind a Pope, but maybe even a V. Davis if available. He is a physical freak like Young. However, if we wanted to improve our D in the secound and third, maybe even an OG in the second. Davis would still work for me w/one of our thirds or our fourth.

When Davis goes to the Combine he is going to shoot up the draft boards.

that has been 1 of my reasons for months now. with 2 different TE's teams can pick up on run/pass then their coverages change. When rivers is in there its pass and if Breuner its a run majority of the time. We get A TE that can do both then all of the sudden Carr has a reliable outlet when the D blitzes and that will cause the D to back off into a cover 2. With the 8th man out of the box DD will be able to run freely and prob end the year with 1500-1600 yards next season. Obcourse the O-line needs upgrading too to gaurauntee that.

Yes and the guys name escapes me. He's a very athletic white guy, who I think may have even returned kicks for Tulsa at one time.

Don't be surprised to see as many as 3-4 TEs taken in the first.

I think you guys are thinking about Garrett Mills. I've only seen him play like one or two games. He definitely doesn't have the prototypical TE build. I think he's under 240 or so.

6'2 230 had 87 catches for 1235 yards and 9 TD's

seems a little undersized for the position

Honestly guys we likely do not need to use a draft pick on a TE. Now if there is an athletic one in the 5-7th rounds that appeals to the team then I think about taking him. I feel we can get Teyo Johnson or another TE in FA for a cheap price for one year and decide if Joppru is going to be able to play. Rivers, Bruener, Joppru, Johnson. That locks us down for at least next year at TE. Now Rivers and Bruener would likely be shown the door next year. Joppru will also be gone unless he shows something impressive for a rookie. Johnson is the 6'5" receiving TE that can run and catch. He is not an overly good blocker, but we have Bruener so anyway.

Why go after a TE that can't do it all? We had that when Miller was here and that didnt work either.
