Zack Hilton will emerge..Pro Bowl?

Now that the Boo Williams experiment is over with, and A "tight-end loving" Drew Brees is in town, I think Zack Hilton, who finished '05 strong, will become a force to be reconed with. With a speedy Stallworth will spread the field and Horn will still demand attention! These factors and a Reggie Bush lining up all over will open up the middle of the field. What are your thoughts? Pro Bowl?

I'll put him around 55 catches with Brees throwing him the ball... but no ProBowl. There are too many good tight ends out there right now.

Shockey, Witten, Smith, Crumpler, etc.

I agree he should have a very good year, the probowl may be a reach mainly for the reason papz pointed out. I really do not care if he makes the probowl or not, just solidify the position and we should be good.

Shockey may not make it through the entire season. His bell's been rung a few too many times and once that syndrome starts, there's no stopping it until he quits. Witten's good but not all-pro, while Crumpler's no secret and with the ATL wideouts falling like flies, will get more over the top coverage. If Hilton starts, he could have a legitimate shot.

I think it will be a miracle if Stallworth either gets a roster spot or doesn't get traded.
Wide Receivers are supposed to CATCH the ball and Payton knows this.

Without a doubt it's a reach...He play for our Saints.

Ya ever think why Ricky Jackson is not a Hall or famer?

xan,

Witten may have his best year with T.O. getting all the attention and Terry Glenn being able to go deep.

Seeing how Witten's already a ProBowler, I don't see how he's not "all-pro".
