Connor Orr writes a fantastic piece in the Star-Ledger about Hill and the potential that Jets WR coach Sanjay Lal is seeking to coax out of him much as he did with Darrius Heyward-Bey in Oakland before being dismissed after the 2011 season. It's a fantastic piece and sheds a lot of light into Hill, the struggles of his rookie season and why hope of him developing into a weekly threat is plausible.
[Hill] says he is more relaxed now, and cannot wait to operate in new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg’s offense, an aggressive system that racks up yardage in the passing game and unleashes All-Pro wideouts.Speed, size, explosiveness, body control ... Hill has every tool it will take to be a top receiver and he just needs to put it together as Lal indicates. A look back at the scouting reports on Hill shows what he could be capable of but the risk-reward associated with him. He came out a year early and so it's good that Lal is working with him to bring out his potential. Sorting out the QB spot is going to be key for Hill. A signal caller who can identify opportunity and with the guts and arm strength to throw him open could be a game-changer for a player like Hill.
"We gotta get that whole quarterback situation handled," Hill said, laughing about his team’s five-way battle for the starting QB job. "We have to get that handled first before we start throwing it really deep."
Lal instructed Hill to begin watching more tape of the great wide receivers to prepare — see how every move Rice makes has a purpose, how Andre Johnson controls and adjusts his body, how Anquan Boldin blocks downfield.
He tells Hill that he can have all those tools and combine them into one receiver.
