TY Hilton - Best WR from draft?

50 posts in this topic

I think he very well could end up the best WR from this past draft. Kendall Wright has shown some playmaking ability, but I think Hilton is more explosive and better in the return game. Michael Floyd hasnt done much, and the only other one who may compete with Hilton is Josh Gordon from Cleveland.

 

Thoughts?

Too early.

 

But Hilton is having a very good year. He will certainly have the best year out of the rest of the receivers.

Cardinals are playing without an O Line and QB and Floyd only has 2 starts. I think Hilton has alot of potential, but best WR in the draft I dont know about that ince a couple of these other big name WR's get a QB, not much size to Hilton, Great start though he has worked out great for us

This year's wide receiver class was not exactly stacked, so there is a very good chance he could turn out to be the best.

So far, no. Josh Gordon has been better, but if you're talking about the NFL Draft only, then yes TY has been the best SO FAR.

You do have to factor in who is throwing to all those WRs too. :)

 

That TD pass to TY vs the Texans today. Are you kidding me? The ball was just gliding like it was effortless. The other guy who throws like that effortlessly just beat the Pats in Foxboro, IMO. RG3's deep ball is pretty to watch as well.

TY reminds me a bit of Garcon. He came in under the radar and has been pleasantly turning heads since he put on the horse shoe. Love it! :td:

The REAL question, though, is whose TD "dance" is more presumptions, immature and annoying - Garcon pointing to his name or TY's arm flapping?

I would definitely say Hilton has been playing better than all the other receivers. Josh Gordon comes close.

I like Gordon and wish we got him...he's a monster. I imagine if he had a full off season program he wouldve faired much better

You know what's so crazy about that pass and others I've seen from Luck in the past is that he was under considerable duress and scrambling when he did it.  The guy seems to be able to put mustard on the ball even when he doesn't have his feet planted.

With the early season drops I didn't think much of TY, but the last half of the season the kid has been very impressive!   Hope that he and Luck can stick together and become the next Manning-Harrison/Wayne!

My thoughts would be "probably not." Hilton will always have some limitations due to his size. I don't think he will ever be a terrific route runner either. Guys like Josh Gorden , Stephen Hill , Blackman have a higher ceiling as they have better size and can make catches when they are covered. That said I think Hilton was a great pick for the end of the 3rd round and may have been the steal of the draft as far as Wr's go. In all fairness to his competition , there could be a case for saying Hilton had had more of an opprotunity than a lot of other rookie WR's as the Colts had pretty much Reggie Wayne and not a lot other than a bunch of rookies cometing for targets. Plus we throw the ball as much as anyone...

I htink he will end up being really good, reminds me of Brown of the steelers, if he could pick up ten more pounds of muscle in the offseason it could make a big difference.

Too early to tell but man he has a great rookie season and I look forward to watching him grow!

If I had the ability to steal a rookie receiver from a team it would have to be Josh Gordon.  Both guys are deep threats but only one of them has a 6'3", 220 pound frame.

 

Hilton is still a hell of a player, though, and has been much more dangerous than just about every other receiver in that draft.

This kid was a steal..and he's only going to get better with time.

Exactly Luck1824! Great vision, hands, & speed...TY's "a diamond in the rough" who will shimmer & shine brightly in a few years once he masters the playbook, trusts what he sees & feels, & just reacts...A great fit for us IMO.

Thanks RGIII, my friend CF4L will be glad to hear you say that. I'm glad RG3 is okay too. Washington has a darn good shot at winning the NFC East too. Dallas is not consistent & the NY Giants are misfiring right now. The Skins will make the Playoffs this year too. Book It!  :thmup:

Most talented? Doubt it, when T.Y. gets his season highlight reels he's not going to have the most athletic, elite catches, but he's productive and a steal for sure.

My thoughts exactly.  He has the type of Desean Jackson/Mike Wallace type speed, great choice in the draft.

If he is really modeling himself after Wayne, then he will become the best....that's for sure.

Athletic and talented are two different things. When people say "athletic" they usually refer to the big tall dominant receivers that beat you with their sheer size. But I remember a certain receiver we used to have that showed athleticism is not the only measure of talent in a receiver by beating the defense with shear route running and fantastic hands, just wish I could remember his name**sarcasm**

Is Hilton the biggest? Far from it. Is he the fastest? Not even close. Are his hands good? Yes, but not GREAT yet. Route running? Average for a rookie receiver. Despite all that he is getting it done arguably as good if not better than most rookie WRs so yes I say he has talent and will be a fantastic WR for this team in the future.

In answer to the topic question, he's certainly up there and may just edge by exceeding the pre-season expectations as being a return/screen only guy. He may well be outstripped as other players in this class develop but given that I think this is going to be one of the best all round classes of all time there's not shame in that. 

 

His hands aren't out of this world, but that can be worked on, I love his speed and attitude and his performances have become a lot more consistent as the season rolls to an end. He's never going to be what some term a "Number one" unless he has a unexpected growth spurt but he still can be huge weapon for us in the future. I think he's proven to be worth trading up for certainly. On top of that he does wear "13" so he wins extra points in my eyes just for that :P

So I guess T.Y. Hilton running a 4.37 doesnt qualify him to be even close to the fastest :clap: http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=86771&draftyear=2012&genpos=WR  not to mention your athletic and talented contrast is laughable

Once again the question talking part were all general statements. We all know he is a very fast guy, doesn't make what I said any less accurate. And if you are going to say my statement is laughable then please add some backbone to your insult and state your own piece, otherwise it's completely moot.

Agreed on both counts.

    • Thanks for your link above to such a fascinating article NCF. I keep coming back to something Shannon Sharpe always says on his new FS1 TV show called "Skip & Shannon"...Real meaningful social change always needs to make others uncomfortable in order to succeed & promote a large shift in daily society & Mr. Sharpe is exactly right. Nothing will change for the better without ruffling some feathers thru rebellion against the way things are. History has demonstrated this fact for decades & centuries. Relax, I'm not about to lead an angry mob with pitch forks & torches here.    The other thing I noticed is when the President of the Players Association said he reached out to Colin Kaep by phone for support I laughed because if the Niners released him tomorrow & Kaep wasn't in the league anymore, would Mr. Smith even care? I highly doubt it. We only care if that QB is on a football roster. The 49ers give him a platform to express his views globally. Take that access away & Colin virtually becomes irrelevant overnight as a celebrity with clout & a public figure of stature.    Bringing up boxer Mohammad Ali was fascinating too because he paid a heavy price for his views not to serve overseas in SE Asia, which pales in comparison to the minor heat Colin is enduring right now. It's not even close. 
    • These guys who kneel or sit for the anthem are PEACEFULLY protesting, they are not hurting a fly......It's MLK style protesting with nothing but being peaceful about it. They are not violent or hurting ANYONE directly. They are just expressing their personal views and some do care about those who are oppressed even if they themselves have money.   If you crack down on the players individuality too much down the road then you might as well call it the "National Fascist League."     Ratings may be down since a lot of late night games suck too. How many times this year have the Bears been on at night for example? And a lot of stars are out this year........and a few have retired like Manning who was a face of the league for so long. MNF this past week sucked with the Falcons destroying the Saints bad defense.   Brady is out for another week and I bet Pats games sky rocket in ratings with his return. JJ Watt is now out. Adrian Peterson is out. The list goes on.......   People get bored. And actually the peaceful protesting gives the NFL attention so in a way they should be thankful for it. If people don't watch since a few sit or kneel for the Anthem then I give up on those people and it just further proves the point of someone like Kaepernick. 
    • Problem here is most fans only see the te as pass catching.  They don't factor in blocking at all.     Check out gores to run and see where Allen took his dude
    • I wake up at 4:30 for work, so 4 more hours of sleep and eating breakfast during a Colts game sounds fanfreakingtastic to me!
    • JV....   It appears you're right.     I just surfed the net looking for information one way or the other.     And here is an interview with DeMaurice Smith the head of the NFLPA,  and in the interview he says there is nothing in the CBA giving the players a right to protest.       Interesting.    Directly contradicts what I heard.   But if Smith is saying it,  it has to be true.      I'll link the interview....   https://www.thenation.com/article/what-the-nfl-players-union-chief-has-to-say-about-colin-kaepernicks-protest/   For some unknown reason,  the website is not letting my cut and paste the quote...    something about formatting issue....    but the answer is the 2nd paragraph after the question about what would the union do to support the players.....            
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
