    why is it never mentioned about a RB's ability to block? even more so in a pass pro system like Kubiak/Shanahan run. so Auburn didn't have much of a passing attack, I watched Tate closely & he seemed always engaged blocking somebody, physical in all aspects of the position, do people actually watch film? This has to have been a real plus for him to being selected by the Texans as high as he did yet nobody ever mentions this. curious isn't it?

    I think we talked about it before the draft. One of the reasons I was high on him was that he had a bit more experience pass blocking that the other top prospects.

    You're right about that because Foster didn't even get to play until he absolutely had to and most of the reason for it is because he had issues with pass pro.
