Default Re: Stephen Hill

4th Qtr

This is the dropped pass that the blogger mentioned in his last example.

(2nd and 7) Washington, T. pass incomplete to Hill, S., dropped pass

This is another case where UNC brought the CB up to the line.
Hill was wide open again on another simple go route along the side line.
The pass was slightly behind where Hill had to slow down just a tad and turned back slightly.
There was no excuse for the drop, however.

This is fixable (I hope, LOL).
With more practice, he should learn to adjust his position on the field so that he can catch the ball a little further away from his body and pull it in.

In this instance, he was just waiting for the ball to come to him and catch it wherever the ball happened to arrive.

Also, we want to take into account that the QB can always do a better job leading the receiver as to put Hill in a better position to catch the ball in stride (he was wide open and had not ran that far downfield.)
That was just a 30-yard pass attempt inside number.
An NFL QB has to do better than that.

Again, no excuse for the drop though.

....

Side Note:
Dwight Jones looks solid, but nothing spectacular.
Coples didn't do much; Tech ran away from him quite a bit.
