T.Y. Hilton scouting report

T.Y. Hilton WR Florida International #4
Ht: 5’10”

Wt: 183

 
Strengths:
Dangerous in the open field; extremely quick and elusive. Has the speed to consistently stretch the field. Efficient route runner; very quick in his breaks and can quickly shake defenders who lack the footwork to stay with him. Reliable hands. Gives a solid effort as a blocker. Explosive return specialist. Hard worker off the field; well respected by coaches and teammates.
Weaknesses:
Undersized; may struggle to shake press coverage at the next level. Level of competition is a minor concern; hasn’t seen corners with the same size/athleticism combination he’ll face at the next level.
Comments:
Hilton is a prototypical slot receiver who can make big plays with his quickness. He’ll struggle in certain matchups due to his lack of strength, but as a 3rd option he can be a dangerous weapon who can stretch the field and also draw some attention away from from the top receivers. He reminds me of former Rams receiver Az-Zahir Hakim, who excelled as the 3rd option alongside Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce.
