Unlike those other two big receivers his specialty is his long speed. But Hill is much more than than just a deep threat, he can block, run route tree & is a team player, not a diva, very rare quality. In this offense paired with Andre Johnson he should continue to haul in big receptions, maybe not that many, but enough to probably led the league in yards per reception. Hard to define a value on that but think the results might just justify the risk.
I find it's odd that Waldman (from the Q&A thread with TC in the main forum) thinks that Hill is seriously lacking at blocking. He even says that Ga Tech didn't run much toward Hill's side. Not what I saw.
