wouldnt mind hill one bit
but wright will make more of an immeadiete impact in the slot he will be the answer to our 3rd down problems as he is the guy who will be a mismatch because of his speed(victor cruz) also a very adaequate deep threat and will strech the field
i would love hill but he will require a year of grooming
Either one is fine with me.
People overrate size sometimes, if a guy is athletic enough to jump ball as well as Kendall does it he's going to beat most corners anyway. Hill vert jumped 39.5 and he's got a 7 inch advantage on Kendall, Kendall jumped only 1 inch less at 38.5".
The thing we need is a guy with great hands who can break for yardage after the catch. Wright is the more polished route runner and one of the best after the catch, Hill the better blocker(because he did more blocking in his run-oriented offense and because he's bigger).
If I'm wanting the guy who'd make the biggest impact next year, I'd go Wright for sure. But I think Hill will be great in a couple seasons, also will make an impact in the redzone next year just due to his size, and will probably have a few highlight plays going long. But in our WCO style, a polished route runner with great hands and freaky athleticism like Wright would give us a lot of creative options. He can do slants, more complex routes, fades, whatever. So not only can he "go long", but he can threaten in the slot in whatever kind of plays we design.
