"He's continued to improve," coach Andy Reid said of Hill on Monday, per the team's official website. "We're asking him to do a ton of things and he just handles it. I've told you before: I think he's a smart kid, shows up and does all the things that we're asking him to do."
Also a fascinating return man, Hill has spiced up a roster short on electrifying weapons. Operating as a downfield threat, the 5-foot-10, 185-pounder now has 18 receptions over the last three weeks and sits third among all rookies -- behind Michael Thomas and Sterling Shepard -- with 32 catches on the year. It's clear to see that he's gained the trust of quarterback Alex Smith.
"Whenever my number is called, I just go out there and try to get open every play," Hill added. "If the ball comes to me, I'm going to catch it and do my thing."
"He is freaky fast. He can giddy up and go, which doesn't hurt," said Reid, who harbors no plans to slow the development of Kansas City's most exciting young player.
