It has become apparent that the Houston Texans felt better about their tight end position than many of the fans did as they did next to nothing to change the group that underwhelmed in 2014. Garrett Graham, C.J. Fiedorowicz and Ryan Griffin combined for 32 catches and three touchdowns in a very poor season from the position.

The team brought in a couple of undrafted tight ends, but made no changes at all beyond that. No draft picks or free agent signings were dedicated to the position, so it appears the same group will trot out in the second year under head coach Bill O’Brien.
All the news around the second-year player Fiedorowicz seems to be positive as he enters the upcoming year. I personally believe of the three guys, he has the most upside.
Graham on the other hand has shown some serious talent in the past as 2013 saw him grab 49 receptions for 545 yards and five touchdowns. That season he outperformed the unit as a whole in every category from last year.
Griffin has a total of 29 catches in his two year career and I am not sold he will ever be much more than that, a third tight end that can catch a pass or two occasionally.
Still, it seems that the unit as a whole cannot put together as poor of a performance in 2015 as they did the previous year. So we want to know, who do you think will have the biggest year for the Houston Texans out of the three guys who should still line up as the top options for Houston (barring a break out by an undrafted guy).
