Unless they plan on trading another TE in the team, I just don't get this pick

This is why, following the borad sometimes doesnt make sense. We now have 5 TE on the roster. Are we already giving up on ANthony Hill last year????

insurance policy for OD?

I mean, we've been 1 for 1 on Wisconsin TEs so far, so the odds are in our favor.

Garrett Graham isn't as flashy as many of the other tight end prospects for 2010, but he is one of the most complete players. Graham doesn't have the same type of straight line speed as Aaron Hernandez or Jermaine Gresham, but he always seems to find a way to get open. He saw his first major action as a sophomore, catching 30 passes for 328 yards and 4 touchdowns in 2007. He took over as the main target last year for the injured Travis Beckum and caught 40 passes for 540 yards and 5 touchdowns. He again surpassed those numbers as a senior. Graham has caught 51 passes for 624 yards and 7 touchdowns. These aren't eye popping statistics, but he plays for one of the most run heavy offenses of the last decade. Graham makes an excellent safety valve for his quarterback. He finds holes in zone coverage and sits down to provide an easy target. Because of Wisconsin's preference to run the ball, he has become an excellent run blocker. He has the size and upper body strength to take on defensive ends in the run game as well as linebackers. He may become an H-back in the NFL. Graham will likely be picked up in the late fourth or early fifth round of the 2010 draft.

Sounds to me like Anthony Hill may be hurt really bad.

6 TEs. Unbelievable. Teams usually dont even carry 4, how the hell are the Texans going to make room for 6 TEs? Say the FA TE gets cut after camp. That is still 5 TEs!

Who are the 6? OD, Dreesen, Casey, Hill, and now this guy, right? We did not take the Mowhatever guy that ESPN has us listed as taking.

That said, we're bringing back the run and shoot, baby! But you know ... with TEs.

So that leaves Dreesen who did the heavy lifting last season.

It's insurance, at a spot that apparently is very crucial to what we do on offense. It now seems that Kubiak's offense philosophy places a huge emphasis on having a very capable TE.

It must be a very integral part of what he needs for the offense to succeed. If we went with two TEs last year in the 4th and another one in this year's 4th round, I'd say we're pretty serious about keeping that position stocked.

Oh, I forgot about Connor Barwin! There's another potential TE! We are going to own the TE position in the NFL.

And Dreessen had off-season shoulder surgery.

That's three injured TEs.

We acquired Michael Gaines who appears to be a journeyman TE. Probably just for camp fodder.

I think we're going to employ OD, Dreesen or Hill (one is going to get let go), and Casey. The 4th round TE we just got is going to be on the practice squad (as usual) and the Gaines fellow will be cut during one of our roster cutdowns.

Just spitballin' here, so feel free to chime in.
