What did we think of Hilliard in game 1

Recommended Posts

Hilliard will be fine with more reps.  Lets see how the rest of pre-season shakes out.  But his hands from the backfield appear to be quite steady.

I’d say Dorsey brings in a vet soon. I’d keep an eye out for Charkandrick West. 

Possible, but that's depends more upon how D'Ernest "The Other" Johnson continues to show. He had a nice little Game 1... if it continues then any vet additions can be put off until after final cuts. Even into the season if we have three healthy backs rostered.

...what He said.

We signed the guys that we have for a reason.  We have to see them enough to be sure about them....one way or the other.

D'Ernest Johnson also did KO & Punt returns at South Fla..and As the ACC watcher 👀 this guy got late touches with some nice burst..hope to see more.. why are we looking for another FB? a 6'2" 233'er that can run 4.37  https://caneswarning.com/2019/03/25/miami-hurricanes-pro-day-early-analysis-trayone-gray-has-blazing-40/       i don't think we keep one? but we may, beef up a FB on PS?

I think Hilliard will be fine as a receiver, there probably won't be that much of a drop off, but his running seemed to lacking, definitely not as physical as Duke.

Yeah.  I WOULD like to see more of that guy.  He had 2 carries for 16 yards. (#43)

I guess he will do. Not sure he would of been as good as Duke would of been as a split end. Duke had great hands and was perfect for a check down situation.

Agree with this... I always felt Duke was underutilized in this role... especially in 2017 when our WR corps was nothing to brag about.

Now? Really is no need for him in that role.

I never understood the thinking of turning Duke into a WR.  Fortunately, Dorsey went out and got 'real' WR's.
