Don't sleep on Saints tight end Benjamin Watson

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; There were 14 TE's taken in the last 3 rounds, but we stayed put with the guys we have. We certainly had the picks available if we were interested. That's all I need know as far as how SP feels ...

JG seemed to do that every other game last year.

The problem is that now we have almost no depth at TE.

In my opinion you are selling these guys short big time. As a receicer, I think Hill has big time potential and could end up in the pro bowl with more receptions than Graham this year. Watson can block and catch and he's been the starting TE on some prolific offenses.

Hill had some big plays last year because he was that one guy not accounted for

With no Jimmy to draw doubles he and ben will be covered more closely

To be fair, the way they are setting up the line/backs; play action should be deadly. Shouldn't matter who is catching the ball, if the defense has to crowd the box.

And Hill did well when Jimmy wasn't in the game because of injuries, so I don't see why he wouldn't continue

Graham was a one dimensional player who was routinely rotated out of the lineup on running plays because of his inadequate blocking skills. Yes, Graham is a talented pass catcher, but was made to look much better because of who was delivering the ball. I expect Watson and Hill to make up for most of Graham's missing production while making the offense far more difficult to anticipate because of their blocking skills. That lack of predictability should result in a far more effective offense. And like the title of this thread states, don't sleep on Watson. He has been vastly underutilized by the Saints due to Graham's presence.

Stills is a case of pure addition by subtraction. He was becoming, or had already become, a distraction in the locker room. Brees is good enough to make any one of his WR's into Stills' production replacement.

I fully expect the offense to be much better as a whole especially with the additions of Andrus Peat and Max Unger and a healthy Jahri Evans giving Brees a great deal better protection than he was warranted the last couple of years.
Lets hope Lelito at LG performs more than adequately also.

Re: Don't sleep on Saints tight end Benjamin Watson

my dear Watson is a jewel to have on our roster. but he shows his age in todays gameplans he gets banged up a lot , is why we had 3 tight ends rotating most of the time.but if you think hes going to catch 50-60 balls is not going to happen.
