This is what I saw. He looks to have good hands to me. But, has a tendency to try to catch with his body.
At the combine, they had a couple of WRs & scouts talking about all the players & pointing out some technique things. Keeping your elbows in, locating the ball early... several things that could help receivers improve their catching skills.
When I look at Hill, I see things that proper coaching can fix. I don't know if we have proper coaching at the WR position.
But like you said, he is an elite athlete, there is no question about that. Can he become an elite WR? that is the chance that someone will take if they draft him in the first or second rounds.
I'm not saying the Texans should take him, like you though, I wouldn't be upset in the slightest if they did.
