Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room examines the ball-tracking, sharpness of movement, and route running of 2019 NFL Draft prospect, Ohio State wide receiver K.J. Hill.
Isaac Bruce, Robert Woods, Amari Cooper, Calvin Ridley, and K.J. Hill share commonalities as wide receivers. Their movements are sharp and sudden, which helps them tell a compelling story — even in a compressed area of the field. Their advanced movement skills make also them productive ball carriers in space.
Where Bruce and Woods separate themselves from Cooper and Ridley is their consistency of hand-eye coordination. The same is true of Hill, who tracks and adjusts to the football like a veteran professional.
This RSP Film Room episode is an extended look at Hill’s performance against Minnesota, a 9-catch, 187-yard, 2-touchdown performance in September. It’s a revealing demonstration of Hill’s suddenness, precision, and coordination that applies to route running, blocking, ball-carrying, and ball-tracking.
