Round 3, Pick 15

As of now, the New Orleans Saints will need to add a tight end or two through free agency or the draft. Ben Watson, Michael Hoomanawanui, and Josh Hill are all scheduled to become free agents. Hill is a bit of a different situation, as he’s a restricted free agent.

Hunter Henry is regarded as the No. 1 tight end prospect in the draft by many, and would have a big role in the Crescent City. First and foremost, Henry is a strong blocker. His reception stats might not jump off the page at you, as Henry hauled in 51 receptions for 739 yards and three scores. Most tight ends in a Sean Payton scheme need have a block first mentality with dedication to the run game, and that’s what Henry would bring.

Henry has strong athleticism, and can easily get behind opposing linebackers to make catches. In all honesty, the term ‘complete’ comes to mind when thinking about this Razorback product.
