Re: Stephen Hill
I think if you work him in as a 1 trick pony at first, he will be ok. The problem is with college wrs are the conversions routes. People think most of the drops are bad hands and they're not. Say the play calls for the wr to run a 12 yard incut, but as you're running, you notice the cb bails out to give the look of cover 3.The wr accelerate, but he notices the lb like urlacher reading running in the middle. Covenrtional wisdom says break that to an out route or a hook. All of this is done withing 5 steps. Suddenly the qb throws the ball while you're converting and you drop it because it got on you too fast. Thats why guys drop passes. They're trying to read coverage and get where theyre trying to get to. Now the steelers only run wallace on a couple of routes and none of which he is converting routes. Thats why he has the production he has.
