Pharaoh Brown, TE (HOU)

Considered starter by coach

Houston head coach Lovie Smith labeled Brown as "our starting tight end" during Tuesday's post-practice news conference.

Smith feels Brown is the most complete tight end on the team when taking into account his prowess as a blocker, but the coach also talked about his catching skills and said he'll have a "big role." That may be the case for a team expecting to run the ball often, but once passing situations arise, expect Brevin Jordan to be the lead target at the position.
