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

    I think they just went BPA, plus all the injuries to our current TEs..

    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.

    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.

    :D

    Uh, OD is coming off an injury.

    Anthony Hill got hurt.

    James Casey did not ignite and set the turf on fire.

    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.
