He also specializes in a whole different category, blocking, that we all know Texans covet. Hill was mostly asked to block in Georgia Tech's triple-option offense. As a blocker, Hill is outstanding, consistently locating, controlling, moving, and pancaking smaller DBs, and more than holding his own against LBs. Hill, despite high hips, bends his knees, uses good technique, and has good range and power blocking.

Seems like clean, well spoken individual who easily buys into team concept. He would bring not only speed on the outside he would lift the roof on coverage's & open up routes for Andre, other receivers/TE's. 29.3 yards per catch average. Those yards per catch are no joke either, I looked up his numbers, as a freshmen 22.83, sophomore 19.4.

Bottom Line: Big play specialist, every down WR because of blocking skill set, in other words might just be perfect compliment to Andre Johnson.

No no no no for the love of god NO! Please do not draft this kid. He is so inconsistent it kills. He's dropped more open passes than anyone I can recount. 49 career catches, probably 49 career drops. He's terrible.
