Tight End an area of Interest

We have seen how the TE has been a vital part of the Saints offense. Coby Fleener was a bust given his cap figure IMHO . OJ Howard is a player that didn't have as many opportunities to exhibit his superior athletic skills as he should in the offense he played in. I estimate him being a second rd pick and wouldn't mind him in the black and gold.

The twoTE formation is something I would like to see more of out of the Saints. It is useful in creating mismatches. Adding another pass receiver TE would open up opportunities for Play action in the running game and would allow us to force defenses in coverages to our advantage
.
Josh Hill has failed to take advantage of his Saints tenure. I think it is time to move on . Hoomanwani is a good blocking TE and I hope he returns healthy

I think we would use it more if Hill could actually play TE.

In no current reality do I see Howard on the board when we draft in the second round.

If a gas mask video surfaces?

I still don't see him there.

He's only had three of substance, Shockey, Graham and Watson. All the rest were JAG's.

Wait, do you mean 3 starters? Because I can name a lot more than 3 total te's. There is atleast 4 starters I can think of; shockey, Watson, jg and fleener. There was a countless number of backups and practice squad. I really liked Thomas and Miller too. Miller was underrated.

Now I pray we don't go te. Fleener was above avg. not worth the money but 650 yards and 5 tds was a solid season. His second year with drew should be better.
