I also don't like the Moss comparisons to Hill. Moss is/was MUCH faster then Hill. Hill ran a 4.31 and Moss a 4.25. Thats a huge difference and Moss is also taller. Moss also has crazy hands and ran smooth like a gazelle and was able to turn on his 5th gear at the last second and just blow by defenders.
I think hill will be a good player, and in 2-3 years he can be a legit #1, but those hoping for Megatron will be sorely disappointed and those thinking he'll be Randy Moss blowing by every defender he sees is also going to be dissapointed.
Hill will not be 251 lbs for sure. Probably by age 24-25, he could be around 225-230. Without loss of speed or athleticism. Impressive enough when you're 6-4, with a 39.5 vertical, and have game changing 4.3 speed. That's a pretty big mismatch for your average 5-11; 195-200 pound CB to contend with.

Those are two HOF talents that we're talking about.
I'll be ecstatic if Hill turns out to be half as good as those guys.
The Megatron comparison has more to do with the fact that Hill is a tall, fast, physical receiver, that came from the same Georgia Tech program that Calvin Johnson and Demaryius Thomas came from. A program that seems to have a knack for recruiting talented receivers, even though they emphasize a triple option run oriented offense. It's a good track record for Hill to be part of.
Like I said...I like Hill's attitude and work ethic. Combine that with his impressive physical talent, he could be a dominate receiver by year three. JMO.
