One thing we haven't seen yet from Hill is a jump ball opportunity. At this stage of his career, I don't know if he has that in his arsenal since he doesn't do a good enough job catching the ball away from his body and using his wide catching radius.
I know the drops are frustrating, but anyone who expected more than 40 catches out of the guy is off their rocker. I predicted ~35 catches and about 4 TDs. Considering he has missed a game and came up gimpy in another, he is almost on pace for that. He's a good kid that always comes off as committed to the game, so I expect him to work his azz off all offseason to improve. Contrary to popular belief, you can improve your hands as a receiver just like a RB can improve his ball security...all it comes down to is concentration and a strong work ethic.
The best part about Hill...he's only 21 years old!
we spent alot to get him with pick #47 was he worth all that? or did tanny reach again for all the wrong player?
