Re: Coby Fleener shifts in Saints' second 'unofficial' depth chart

i know freener missed a block last game that sent payton frustrating down the sideline looking for a piece of his asre, when ingram got hit in backfield.or maybe hill not to sure, but i love it when payton shows that character to his players. and thats why our kickers are always headcases,

When no one was looking Hill did fine. But he has hit his ceiling and isn't more than a semi-reliable back up tight end.

I got to see the beginning of camp and Hill couldn't catch anything and barely reached for balls within arm's reach.

Fleener was running the seam routes well and his size if employed well could prove valuable. I can see a lot of those 20-30 yd routes into the end zone being lethal ala Graham style.

If Josh "I'm made of glass" Hill is beating Fleener out its not a good sign. Hopefully this is just a procedural "wake up call".
Remember, this is unofficial. In pre-season they will move players from first to second and third to get them more playing time on offense in order to get a better evaluation of them. They rarely play there first string in pre-season.

If it were going any slower, it'd be going backwards.
