Lightbulb Revolutionizing Football: The 11 Tight End Set

During the 2010 NFL draft, the Houston Texans did something none of us thought imaginable: the drafted more TEs. After striking gold with Owen Daniels, they drafted James Casey and Anthony Hill in 2009. With Joel Dreessen emerging as a solid #2 TE, there was absolutely no need for a player at the position. Not only did they draft 2 TEs, they also signed another right before the draft putting the total at 7. That got many of us thinking: what if Houston’s trying to revolutionize football by putting 11 TEs on the field at once? Then I started remembering that they have several other players who were former TEs in college. With that said, I decided to beat Houston to the punch and write about the new formation in football: the 11 TE offense.


Owen Daniels, QB – Daniels knows the offense inside and out. He lines up all over the field and has a good sense of timing on the routes. He also is the most experienced out of all the TEs on the roster at QB and spent time there at Wisconsin. In fact, he was Houston’s emergency 3rd QB on the roster when Houston carried only 2 QBs. Casey is the only real other option at QB, but with him at RB they can have success in the wildcat if need be.


James Casey, RB – Easily the most versatile, he spent time at multiple positions on offense (WR, TE, QB, FB, RB, LS). While it would be easy to put him at QB, he spent a lot of time at Rice running the wildcat and getting goal line carries so he has a better understanding of running lanes than most do. He knows how to run with power and would be huge in short yardage situations.


Garrett Graham, FB – Graham really isn’t a true FB, but he could fit as he gives incredible effort on blocking. He’s compared to a much better blocking version of Owen Daniels (obviously not as talented a receiver), so this could make sense. Houston likes having their TEs play multiple roles so he could actually play FB in a pinch this season. He would also be deadly on play action role outs.


Dorin Dickerson, WR – This was a no brainer. Although he also spent time at multiple positions all over the field (TE, FB, LB), he’s going to play WR in the NFL and that’s where he fits in this offense. Most of his catches last season were deep bombs from him torching LBs, so it makes sense, especially seeing as he’s the most athletic of the group. He certainly has the athleticism to make it work with his 4.40 speed and 43.5” vertical.


Joel Dreessen, WR – Dreessen would be perfect as a center since he’s the long snapper, but he’s too scrawny and would get destroyed by guys like Casey Hampton and Kris Jenkins. However, after filling in nicely for Daniels, I think he could fit in as Houston’s possession WR. He did a good job working the middle of the field and could be a safety value for Daniels. He wouldn’t be a deep threat, but that’s what Dickerson is for.


Connor Barwin, TE – It wasn’t too long ago that Barwin was playing TE in college (2 seasons removed). He actually had close to 600 yards and 6 TDs during his time as a TE at Cincy. He actually was a draft-worthy prospect at TE and judging by his combine numbers might of actually been drafted towards the middle/late rounds. Barwin has the tenacity and speed to be the TE in this offense.


Anthony Hill, OT – In 2009, Hill was drafted in the 4th round solely based on his blocking skills. Some thought about switching him to OT a la Jason Peters, but showed enough as a TE in college (when healthy). Hill isn’t mobile as a TE because of injuries, but would be a perfect fit as an athletic LT in the offense because of his superior blocking abilities. He’s got the frame to get bigger as well.


Michael Gaines, OT – Like Hill, Gaines is considered a blocking TE by most. At a size of 6’3” 270, Gaines has made NFL teams in the past by his blocking skills as he’s incredibly limited in the passing game. He’s got a quick first step for an OT and would be facing many of the same DEs that he’s gone up against as a TE. He would be able to step in at RT position.


Duane Brown, OG – Brown is actually the starting LT right now, but it’s much easier to transition an OT to OG than it is a TE like Hill and Gaines. Brown was a TE early in his college career and has spent time at a good amount of positions on the OL. He’s more powerful than most players in the ZBS and would greatly help out Hill at LT.


Earl Mitchell, OG – This one is a bit of a stretch, I’ll admit. Mitchell went to Arizona as a TE and spent time there before switching to DT. He hasn’t played on the OL before, but several players in the past who haven’t played there have actually made it work (Stephen Neal for example). Mitchell does have an amazing quick first step and has decent strength (26 reps at combine). He would be next to Winston at center who would be able to help him out.


Eric Winston, C – Like Brown, Winston out-grew the TE position during college. He spent time at both OT positions, but there needs to be a leader at center and Winston knows the offense well (starter since 2006). He understands multiple positions and would be the one making protection calls. He would form a solid tandem next to Brown and could also help Mitchell out as he grows into the position.

It's a joke. We had 7 TEs on the roster after the draft (if you include Dickerson) and several former TEs. Figured I would make a post about it to cope with how many TEs/former TEs we have on our roster. All in good fun.

Is it really that big of a deal?

I mean...Technically they only drafted one TE..

I know a lot of people think that's one too many, but with all the injuries at the position and with Owen Daniels contract and future with the team being up in the air at this point, is it really that bad?

As a side note, I didn't realize that this was Owens 2nd or 3rd(?) ACL injury...I heard him talking about it on the radio the other day and to me it sounds like he is prone to injuring that thing...

I don't want to hijack your thread, but I'm not really feeling good about the Texans ponying up the money to keep Owen even if he has a really good yr...I think that they are pretty much in the process of trying to replace him...Hope I'm wrong...

This would be the perfect thread if you can make Dickerson a great FS prospect .

I like it. Send the same 11 guys out there and just throw different looks at the D. It's the second coming of Richard Smith's defense on the opposite side of the ball. Maybe we can pull up the same fantastic results! (too soon?)

And Rey stop poking holes in the thread. Isn't it obvious it was made after Lork realized how many former and current TE's we have on the roster and used some of his brutally football free time to put it together.

Reading this was the greatest use of my February- August time ever.

BTW it looks like we also signed an UDFA TE. I think he MIGHT be out of Rutgers but thats a shot in the dark.

Nice! You actually might be able to move the ball. Need to do this in Madden and let us know how it plays out. Do a season and let us know what the record was with this package.
