While Nagy has acknowledged the similarities between the two pint-sized playmakers, it's unclear to what extent Cohen will be featured in Chicago's offense this season.
If offseason practices are any indication, Nagy shares mentor Andy Reid's penchant for exploiting mismatches through alignment.
In a Monday interview with the Jim Rome Show, Cohen revealed that Nagy already has him moving around the gridiron as a pre-snap chess piece.
"I feel like if I could kick the football, he'd also want me to kick the football, too," Cohen quipped. "It just goes to show how many places he has me at. I've been everywhere. I've been at every position. It's crazy."
A fourth-round steal out of North Carolina A&T State, Cohen became the first NFL rookie since Hall of Famer Gale Sayers in 1965 to score touchdowns via rushing, receiving, passing and punt return in a single season. His total of 1,578 all-purpose yards nearly matched Hill's rookie-year output of 1,836 yards.
The primary difference between the two dynamic playmakers, as Nagy pointed out at the NFL Scouting Combine in February, is that Cohen is a better runner out of the backfield while Hill is a superior downfield receiver.
Cohen is an obvious candidate to shine in Nagy's creative attack. The question is whether he will come close to matching Hill's value as one of the most dangerous big-play threats in football.
