    Tye Hill is the new Dre' Bly

    Tye Hill is Dre' Bly waiting to happen...hopefully without the FA departure unless he's worth resigning in the future.

    Like Bly, Hill is a FAST cornerback but a little undersized. But the ball doesn't care whether you're 5-9, 6-9 or 3-9, as long as you can pick it off. And like Bly, Hill could likely start out as a nickel back who is a nightmare matched up with slot receivers. Hill can stuff the run when needed, too, but he can also get wiped out on sweeps. But that's all right.

    With a stronger pass rush--hopefully--Hill will likely get some underthrown and poorly thrown passes, negating those bigger receivers being able to catch them/get back to them. Hill has the SPEED to take it to the house as a home run threat every time he gets his paws on it...yeah, he'll drop some easy picks, but a lot of rookies do and even some All-Pros so whatever.

    Teams like the Cardinals will try to take advantage of Hill in the red zone, with Warner (or Leinart in the near future) throwing up jump balls and fades toward the back corner of the end zone. But overall I think our schemes can get to that QB, keep up with the WR's with tackling help from safeties and linebackers and we'll be fine. Besides, how many good defenses have undersized corners who have good awareness, tackling skills and speed? Plenty.

    Butler is also undersized, but does that stop him from playing well against taller WR's? Not always.

    I am excited about Tye Hill, I thought the signing of Fakhir Brown was an indication that we'd trade down and get Greenway or Carpenter. But Travis Fisher's a FA and he could get traded or something, Brown not be more than a backup--an expensive one at that--and Butler may not stay healthy. So this is a strong pick as our future #1 corner who can shut 'em down.

    Why don't we let Tye Hill be Tye Hill instead of Dre Bly.

    Re: Tye Hill is the new....Tye Hill

    Good thread, men!

    Yeah, Tye Hill will have to carve his own niche into the big tree that is the NFL. We're facing some pretty good competition in the AFC West this year, but outside of Denver and Arizona I don't really think he'll face too many tough-as-hell receivers. Plus he'll probably start out as a nickel back alongside Butler and either Fakhir or Travis Fisher, if Fisher's not dealt first. Hill could start midway in his rookie season, especially if 1-2 CBs get hurt.

    Tye Hill is not the next Dre Bly. Tye Hill has mediocre hands (and that is being nice). He ties the record for broken up passes because he doesn't have the hands to turn those into interceptions. He should do some catching drills with Torry and his throw guy Joe. I hope they don't place the same deal with Hill where he has to buy Joe dinner if he drops a ball!
