Why all the Jason Hill fans? That speed of his is no good with his hands of stone, if he hasn't figured out how to catch by now, he never will.
Where do you get this idea?
When we've actually seen him get into games, he catches the ball.
Jason Hill played at a high level of competition for four seasons while at Washington State. Jason Hill has a good initial burst and tremendous downfield speed to stretch the field vertically. He also has excellent hands and has shown the ability to be versatile as a WR, he is just as likely as to run a 10 yard curl or a slant as he is to run a post or a jet. He had solid productivity at the collegiate level, even though the QB position was never an area of strength for the Cougars.
I like the kid too Gavin, but the bottom line he's been inconsistent through out his entire career here. One day awesome routes coupled with strong hands, then drops and no follow through, too inconsistent given the talent we now have at WR.
Who would have thought?
I'm not making any commentary on Hill with those last two posts. Just answering the ridiculousness of those I was responding to. One says he didn't think he was fast, and the next says he has "hands of stone". He IS fast, one fo the fasted WR's in the NFL, and every scouting report I can find (I only read a few, that was the #1 Google result for "Jason Hill Scouting Report" I posted) says he has great hands.
Hill has never come close to showing that speed in a football game.
