Josh Hill is our starting TE

Saints coach Sean Payton gushed over rising third-year TE Josh Hill at his season-ending press conference, calling Hill "exactly what we're looking for."

The starting tight end job in New Orleans is Hill's to lose following Jimmy Graham's departure. Hill led the Saints in 2014 special teams tackles and has six touchdown catches on 30 career targets. "He's exactly what we're looking for," said Payton with a wide grin, several months before the Graham trade. "Each week you know exactly what you're gonna get. He's talented, he can run, he's young. He's consistent. Those are things that allow you to win." Payton also discussed Hill's eye-opening Pro Day measurables. If your Dynasty league has open offseason waivers, stop what you're doing and pick Hill up.

Re: Josh Hill is our starting TE

I like Hill. I also do see us getting another TE in the draft.

Re: Josh Hill is our starting TE

I fine with this, Brees will help him make the pro bowl just like he did Gates and Graham if Hill does what is asked of him and can get open, Brees always seems to find they open man when he has time to throw which he should get behind this new offensive line that's being put together (please use 13 or 31 on Oline). He's light years ahead of Graham when it comes to blocking so he's a more complete/traditional tight end too.

Re: Josh Hill is our starting TE

Hill can be just as good as Graham in this offense. This kid is very underrated. Watch and learn NFL.

Re: Josh Hill is our starting TE

I like Hill. He proved to me we can make him into another Jimmy Graham. Or even a more complete Tight End.

Hill has long since deserved much more playing time.

Re: Josh Hill is our starting TE

Hill will be very effective, but it's asinine to suggest that he's every bit that Jimmy Graham was for us...

He won't be able to body up players as effectively...

But since the Big Mo Contract, Jimmy wasn't doing it as well, either...

But Hill will be effective and we will have plenty bang for the buck with his salary cap number...

One thing the Saints get right - We sure can find UDFA even though we crap our hat with draft picks...

Re: Josh Hill is our starting TE

I like Hill

If you look at his big plays though
He got lost in the secondary as other teams teamed up on Jimmy

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
