True but lets all hope that Hilliard pulls a Ford and fixes that issue. Ford was the absolute worst at trying to stay up after contact when he first saw the field. Not worth a shite up the middle or even off tackle. But he fixed that and was a real bruiser getting yards after contact and bulling his way forward.
Coaches worked with him on that obviously and it paid off. Just think Hilliard can be just as good as Hill if the coaches work that same magic!
3rd as of now but that doesn't mean it can't change.
Agree with almost all of that. But, I dont see him ever being as good as Hill. Even if he starts running pissed off and crushing people, his lack of speed would still hold him back. He would def be a good RB if he runs mean. But, if he and Hill both ran with the same attitude, Hills speed would still separate him. Hilliard is a poor mans Hill. Not as physical, not as strong, def not as fast. Not a bad RB by any means, but just a little soft.
IMO, Hills breakaway speed is what makes him so dangerous. At his size, 6'2 235, he has great quickness and speed to go along with his tackle breaking ability and strength. I think a lot of teams underestimate how fast he is because of his size. His skill set and speed is very rare for a guy with his size.
And people saying Blue is faster than Hill, Im not so sure. You put them in a race it would be neck and neck IMO. Wouldnt surprise me if Hill is actually faster. Hes just as fast IMO.
