After his proday, people are describing his game as if he were a suped up MM.
Excellent vertical threat who can run deep patterns; go routes, posts, and ins...which is almost exactly what we used MM for.
MM wasn't a possession WR for us, he was the target we used to exploit coverages when opposing defenses went all out to stop Cruz and Nicks.
Imo, Hill could be the perfect WR to work off of Cruz and Nicks. First, on 3rd downs, we could move him outside of Cruz in the slot. That'd give Eli the ability to decipher what the d is doing, and if Hill has 1v1 coverage, can let it fly. Secondly, Hill will most likely be around when we pick, because he played in that GT triple option offense, he has really no solid foundation for teams to base an early pick on him. Third, he has top 5 talent and athleticism and size.
I'm not saying he will def. be the pick, but if Reese selects him, I will be very confident bc it will mean Reese did his homework and believes he can come in and succeed right away, which is not typical for WR's in our offense. He could be used early for us bc I'd assume with the complexity of routes Nicks and Cruz will run, Hill wont be overwhelmed with our whole offense, I'd assume KG could give him 2 simpl concepts based on the defensive coverage offof Nicks and Cruz, and let Eli make the decision to throw to him which he won't if Hill messes up.
Just throwing that out there, kind of a boring sunday, just figured I'd see where others stand on it...
