Anybody got an idea why we have so many TE?

Guess they are looking for the best available TE that can block and catch, and be a FB type of lead blocker. Can never have too many to compare. They obviously want to see if any of them have a chance to be better than A Auclair. Haven’t really watched him at all, but from what I read, it seems like Ernsberger might have a chance. I really like some of the small school guys that are getting a chance. I wonder if J Zema has any chance to be our punter? We have a new kicker so there isn’t… Read more »

I’m all for Zema!! Incarnate Word is about 5 miles from my house in San Antonio. Also rooting for Moore, I used to live about 20 miles from UNT when I lived in the Dallas area.

Seems like they wanna upgrade the H-back spot that Alan Cross plays. Maybe AuClair as well, but I think they liked what they saw from him last year.

Tryout players with a good chance to make the 90 man roster: R Freguson, J Huff, D Price and J Zema.
UFA with a chance to make the team: D Ernsberger, E Phillips, A Allen or R Ferguson, G Igwebuike, S Wilson and C Boozer.
My favorites are E Phillips, G Igwebuike, S Wilson and C Boozer. D Price is very interesting but I believe that, even if we like him, we try to stash him away on the practice squad for 1 year.

Very curious to see E Phillips and S Wilson in camp. They both look to be very quick and have a chance to really help our depth at WR and RB. Also wondering if they see Wilson as a PR/KR? I think he did some returns in college, and we really need help in the return game. Humphries is OK, but lacks any real speed, he is not really a threat to take it all the way unless it is blocked perfectly.

Griffin Oakes is Money, watched him at Indiana for 2 years, good pick up for a try out
