Thor 2.0?

For all the joke about the Texans having a TE fixation, the Texans currently only have two true tight ends on the active roster. James Casey acts as a hybrid TE/FB, while Owen Daniels and Garrett Graham are pass catchers first, blockers second. It wouldn't surprise me if the Texans brought in another TE through the draft. With two Wisconsin Badgers already in the lineup, maybe it's time for the school on South Main to flex it's TE muscle.

Rice's Vance McDonald is a name that has popped up as a TE prospect in recent days. Physically he has all the tools that the NFL looks for. First, he's big. At 6'5", 260 pounds, and an 82" wingspan, he has the type of size that NFL teams want as an in-line TE. He also has very good pass catching ability. His 15 career touchdowns ranks him 5th on the all-time Rice TD reseptions list, just 2 behind James Casey.

At the Senior Bowl, scouts noted his size, speed, and pass catching ability. Your own Houston Texans even caught up with him and interviewed him for their web series "Path to the Draft".

You can judge his ability as a TE by watching a few highlights. Here are some of the highlights of Rice versus SMU.

So what do you think about having two Owls and two Badgers as our TE's?
