Hill is another pre draft hype job because he ran a sub 4.4
So you know how many catches he has in his 3 years at GT, right ? Try under 50...yup a whopping 49 catches in 3 years at GT. He is not the 2nd coming of Megatron
Yes. Downplay the kid's abilities because the coach there can't run anything but a high school offense.
Here are some fun FACTS for you.
1) Hill went out of his way to get help on his route running. He enlisted the help of Mohammed Sanu and Terrance Mathis.
2) The kid has good football intelligence.
3) The kid has excellent hands. During the drills he caught almost everything away from his body, IN STRIDE.
4) Also, while running the drills, he has some of the most crisp breaks of any of the receivers. That includes on the Post Corner drill where several WRs got chewed out, including Dwight Jones.
5) The kid blocks extremely well down field. Something the Pats ask their receivers to do.
6) The kid is reported to have good football intelligence. I think that was shown today as well.
I don't expect the kid to be Megatron, but dismissing him because the offense the coach ran was simplistic is just utterly stupid and asinine.
