Just a few years back, the Texans managed to find a second-day steal in tight end Owen Daniels, who was rewarded with a Pro Bowl selection following the 2008 season. Houston may have just found another one of those steals in Anthony Hill.
College Football News.com writer Pete Fiutak had this to say about Hill–
With excellent size, great receiving skills, and good upside, he could be a steal if he's able to stay healthy. That's a big if. He's had a variety of problems over the course of his career, including a knee injury, but when he's right, he has the talent to be as good as any tight end in the draft. At the very least he should be a much cheaper Brandon Pettigrew. He'll work hard to stay healthy and will do what's needed to improve, and after good off-season workouts the arrow is pointing up.
The Texans now have a second viable pass-catching threat at the tight end position which should help their red zone offense, something they struggled with mightily a year ago. Hill also provides some level of insurance as Owen Daniels is reportedly not happy about his contract situation.
