Tight Ends (3)

Adam Trautman, Taysom Hill, Nick Vannett

As mentioned in the quarterback section, Taysom Hill is listed with the tight ends because that appears to be the position he’ll be taking the majority of his snaps at. Joining Hill at the tight end position are Adam Trautman and Nick Vannett.

These three feel pretty obvious to make the team but will the Saints carry just three tight ends as I have them doing? If they decide to go with four, Juwan Johnson and Lucas Krull will be fighting it out for that final spot.

I debated putting Johnson here as the fourth tight end but ended up giving the team an extra offensive lineman instead. O-line depth is more important for this team than tight end depth, especially with there not being a true starting option at the position.

These three feel like pretty sure bets to make the 53-man roster though unless injuries or something bizarre ends up happening. Perhaps if Krull really flashes this summer he can knock Vannett off the podium.
