Player Scouting Report

Players Scouting Reviewer : AaronRDuke . Position :Wide Receiver [WR]

"Blazing Speed". "Fastest player in the league". The "Cheetah". Speed is Tyreek Hill's most important attribute of which really makes him stand out. Instant acceleration and high stamina makes his very hard to catch.
Pass Catching
With only 2 drops on 83 targets (2.4% drop percentage), Hill is pretty reliable. When running in the slot, Hill tends to let the ball hit his chest which can sometimes play against him when adjusting to run after the catch.
Route Running
Very hard to keep up with whether it is the long ball or in the slot position. Hill can create instant separation with his speed, not his strength. Most consistent in the slot position.
Hill is one of the smallest guys on the field standing at 5'10" and 185 pounds. Not afraid to take a big hit. Muscles to fight for extra yards but can get tossed if caught.
Vertical Ability
Very impressive 40'.5" vertical. Not the first to look for by Alex Smith or soon to be Patrick Mahomes II. Not the player to stand out over the pack to receive an overthrown ball.
Run after Catch
One word...untouchable. Once Tyreek Hill reaches open space, there is no catching him. With his incredible open field and double moves, Hill can put defenders on skates and leave them in the dust. Whether he is returning a punt/kick or playing WR/HB Tyreek Hill is a very unpredictable runner.
Catching in Traffic
Very hard for Hill to haul in a pass with a big muscle defender all over him. Tends to struggle in this area.
Big Play Ability
Whether he is playing WR/HB or retuning kicks/punts, Hill is the guy you want with the ball. Stick to the facts when mentioning Hill is a clutch player. Tyreek Hill is the first player since 1965 to have a rushing TD, receiving TD, and retuning TD in the same game. Scoring with 1 sec left in regulation to force overtime in Denver that night.
Did not miss a game due to injury.
Always striving for extra yards. Willing to take the hits.
Tyreek Hill is everywhere. Receiving close to 600 yards and 6 TD's, Nearly 300 yards and TD's rushing, and nearly 1,000 returning yards adding 3 TD's.
Very composed on the field. Have to be a little worried with Hill off the field. Many scouts had Hill going un-drafted due to his off-field troubles due to domestic violence.
Deep Threat
Uses his speed to beat defenders down the field, not his strength or size.
Over the Middle
Hands are shaky once he reaches the middle of the field. Needs to adjust quicker once receiving the ball and turning to run.
Wide Receiver, Running Back, Punt Returner, Kick Returner, used in the WildCat formation. All very efficient.
Hill can make up any play or performance with any position. With his Rookie Year in the books, only time will tell.
Ridiculous speed. Can switch the field with one pivot, move, or stop/break. Very dynamic. Open field moves. Can play multiple positions. -WR -HB -PR -KR
Lack of size leads to lack of strength on the field. Waits for a hole to open up. Past Off-field situations (domestic violence).
Overall Analysis
Tyreek Hill is one of the most dynamic players in the NFL and just ranked 36 out of 100 on the NFL's Top 100 Players. His speed and agility can take him a long way. Adjusted to the Chiefs playbook very quickly coming in as a Rookie and fits very well in their system. Mainly looked upon for his returning skills in his Rookie year, but this man can play anything and that can hurt the defense.
