Texans Report Card - Tight End

Owen Daniels (Mark Humphrey/AP)

BattleRedNation.com is going to look at the Texans, position by position, and give our final evaluation of what happened during the 2008 season. We're going to move to the tight end position next.

Owen Daniels - 70 receptions, 862 yards, 2 TD's

Joel Dreessen - 11 receptions, 77 yards

Positives- Owen Daniels is one of the best, most underrated tight ends in football. Daniels is speedy enough to beat seam coverage, and he has shown great hands.

Negatives- As great as Daniels is, the Texans still need more depth, as Dreessen is little more than just a guy, and Mark Bruener wasn't much of a factor.

Overall- The Texans can use another blocking type of tight end, and someone else to spread the field if they choose to go with more two tight end sets.

Solution- Houston should look for another tight end to compliment Daniels in either free agency or the draft.

Final grade: B-
