    Guessing this one won't go over well, but he is probably a true best athlete available. Note: Kibiak at his pree conference said that Dickerson is a WR for the Texans

    lol, another TE.

    Totally a BPA pick. This guy was rated as a 2-3 round grade.

    I guess OD better work hard this season, or he's gone

    He's a good TE, but I just don't even know what's going on anymore...

    I knew a lot of people would hate, but this was strictly a BPA pick...with Hill's status uncertain, who knows?

    We now have 7 TE's. Guess we will unleash our new 5 TE set upon the NFL this season.

    It is evident that the Texans are concerned about their te situation. With all the injuries and the way nobody really stepped up after Owen Daniels went down I think they want to be sure they are covered. No way we draft 2 tight ends and sign a te free agent if there wasn't a major concern. I think more information will be coming post draft about the te situation.

    Yay another Tight End! Maybe this year we will move to a two TE set.

    We have become the Detroit Lions of TEs. Great athlete, and may be BPA, but how the hell are we going to stash OD, Leach, Dresson, Hill, Casey, Graham and Dickerson on the roster? That is 7 guys that are TE/FB. Can we really devote that many roster spots to those two positions? Most teams go with one FB, 2 TE, and one guy that is a mix (if I am thinking correctly. Correct me if I am wrong). Where are we going to cut people?

    THIS KID IS A WEAPON and is more of an H-back, he's too small for the line of schrimmage. Consider him a FB not a TE, so the "not another TE" crowd can go back to their Mel Kiper Draft Guide.

    I like the pick from a talent standpoint.

    I think he plays FB/H-back.

    Good value for a 7th round pick, but it certainly seems like a BPA pick. I have a hard time seeing how he'll fit on this team since he's undersized for a TE, but I guess we'll see how it plays out.

    Actually, Kiper was the one who said that he didn't even list a position for DIckerson because he doesn't know where he'll fit in

    Should make for a spirited training camp battle....

    I think we're trying to figure out a way to score in the redzone this year.

    Thinking out loud: Our personnel allows us to split TEs out at WR if we would like which gives us favorable run blocking matchups. Plus we still have the ability to throw the ball around because all our TEs (except for Hill) are exceptional WRs.

    Throw in Tate and I think we're gonna be finishing a lot more drives with tds this season.

    I'm not upset with these picks because these guys are clearly good players. I'm just interested to see how we use these weapons.

    I am intrigued with this TE situation to say the least!!!*

    *If we even have him playing TE!!!

    The Texans carry 2 full backs, consider Dickerson the 2nd FB. This kid is has freak measurables for an h-back. Can't wait to see how the offense utilizes him.
