Josh Hill is our starting TE

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I was mad at TE end around because why call that, it made no sense. That's not Hill's fault, that falls on Payton and CarMicheal...

He wont have that advantage this year


Give Drew some time to spread the ball around including a chip and release by Hill and things will open up
Yeah, but now Hill can get lost with the addition of Spiller. LB's will have to account for Spiller out of the backfield.

LOL..ooooh yes...that failed end around..almost forgot about that. Me personally, I blamed that on the stupid play call not so much Hills fault. Also, for those that blasted him for that, he was a rookie!

Re: Josh Hill is our starting TE

Hill has decent hands and good speed for a TE but aside from being a respectable receiving threat I haven't seen much of him as a blocker. Hopefully he can handle all of the assignments that will be asked of him.

We definitely need depth at the position but I am content with Hill as the starter. Teams will definitely sleep on him.

Re: Josh Hill is our starting TE

Hill is the better "all around" TE compared to Graham anyway.

I've read somewhere that he is actually a pretty good blocker. It was said he was better than JG at that.

Re: Josh Hill is our starting TE

The only thing that bothers me is that Hill is so muscular that he looks tight. If I were coaching him he would stretch two hours a day and become much more flexible. I have been a fan since he was a rookie and I believe he has the talent to get the job done. And yes, he is a good blocker. That alone makes him a better all around TE than Jimmy.

Re: Josh Hill is our starting TE

I liked hill a lot. Better blocker and he is coming along in the passing game. Not a Jimmy Graham type threat, but there are not many Jimmy Grahams out there. I think HIll is better for us all around when you factor in blocking.

Re: Josh Hill is our starting TE

Is it a done deal that Hill will start over Ben Watson, because he can play too. He was an every down starter on the Pats offense that was the most prolific in NFL history several years ago. Everyone assumes we are gonna draft a TE, but this year's TE class is said to be very weak. There may not be any upgrades in the draft. Two guys I like in the draft are Max Williams from Minnesota and Nick O'Leary from FSU. Both have good hands, though O'Leary may be more of an H-back type.

Re: Josh Hill is our starting TE

I think we could do a lot worse than having Hill as our starter

We became too dependant on the "monster mismatch" Jimmy Graham presented, athleticly Jimmy is obviously the better athlete but we don't need Hill to be like that

Be a David Thomas, Jeremy Shockey or even a Billy Miller (anyone remember him) and I'll be happy.
