Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Texans' picks: 4/122 -- Anthony Hill, TE, 6-5, 262, North Carolina State...The local product is a block-first tight end. He also has the potential to be a receiving threat. He comes in as a sort of replacement for departed TE Mark Bruener, who was primarily a blocker. Hill will most likely play in two-tight end sets, and could see time very early. - by The Sports Xchange
