We start with Garrett Graham and give him a N because when he is in the game he gets overwhelmed during the games. When the Texans use three tight end sets they bring him in, but he get abused in the run blocking game. This has caused the Texans to put those plays involving three tightend sets in their back pocket. Garrett better start improving because the Texans have already brought in some free agent tight ends for workouts for a reason, and he is the reason

Owen Daniels has come back with a vengeance and looks healthy from his ACL injury from two years ago. He gets a B+ for his play so far this season, and once again we think there is plenty of room for better things to happen. He has bailed out Schaub in some tight situations and is his favorite target in the pass game. Daniels has 31 receptions for 415 yards and three touchdowns and might be on his way to a pro bowl appearance.

We were torn on this but Joel Dreessen has been a workhorse for the Texans and he too also graded out at a B+. He actually, to us, has been the most complete tightend for the Texans this season when it comes to blocking and receiving. His run blocking ability has been great and he is tied for the team lead in touchdown receptions with 3. He doesn’t get much publicity in the media, but he is a big contributor to what the Texans are doing offensively. Watch for him to continue is great play into the second half of the season. In this report card we look at the Texans tight ends.
