As Jimmy Graham stays away from OTAs, second-year TE Josh Hill is handling first-team reps with veteran Ben Watson.
Hill is something of a super-deep sleeper. He made the Saints as a 2013 undrafted rookie out of Idaho State, and offers plus speed (4.66) to go with a highly explosive broad jump of 10-foot-7 at 6-foot-5 and 246 pounds. Hill is someone to consider grabbing in Dynasty leagues. He could appear on the re-draft radar if Graham missed regular season time due to injury or holdout. Jun 6 - 3:57 PM

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett reports the team is high on second-year TE Josh Hill.

Hill, an undrafted free agent out of Idaho State, played 246 offensive snaps as a rookie and saw plenty of action in the playoffs as the No. 3 tight end. At his Pro Day, Hill posted a 4.66 forty and 36.5-inch vertical. A catch-first tight end with plus athleticism, the Saints could be grooming Hill for eventual No. 2 duties.

Saints TE Josh Hill caught one pass for 23 yards in New Orleans' Divisional Round loss to the Seahawks.

An undrafted rookie out of small-school Idaho State, Hill did a nice Jimmy Graham impression on his 23-yard catch, going airborne to make the grab. Hill won a roster spot in training camp, finishing the regular season with six catches for 44 yards and a touchdown. He'll have an inside track on a 2014 roster spot.
