Black & Gold Hester


EDITORS NOTE: THIS BLOG WAS FIRST PUBLISHED LAST MONTH. IT WILL RE-RUN EACH MONTH UNTIL THE 2008 NFL DRAFT IN APRIL!

I’m not a football expert by any means.
I love the game and love covering the Saints and the LSU Tigers and of course have opinions and one opinion I have is as follows;
The Saints should draft LSU halfback/fullback Jacob Hester.
Yeah yeah yeah, I know…..Hester is too slow to be a true halfback in the NFL and too small to be a full time fullback.
But the guy is a player.
He’s carried the ball nearly 300 times since his freshman year and has fumbled only once (on his 1st college carry)!
He understands pass protection and blocking and with a head coach like Sean Payton, a guy who throws so many schemes at opposing defensive coordinators….their heads spin….Hester would thrive.
The Shreveport resident is also a gem on special teams.
In all honesty, I think he’d be a better version of current Saints running back Aaron Stecker.
Hester could play on all special teams and be used in special packages on offense.
He’s also a class guy and would fit in perfectly in a locker room with guys like Drew Brees, Deuce McAllister, Scott Fujita and Mike Karney.
I’m not saying draft him in the first round….but from round two on….Hester should be a consideration.
