Falcons trade for CB Tye Hill
Not sure what we gave up, rumor is a 7th round pick

I like this aquistion, this just adds on to an already speedy falcon defense

I was never a Tye Hill fan but anytime you can get a former 1st round pick who's only been in the league for 3 years for a late round pick its a good trade IMO.

If TD is for it, I'm for it. Especially since it's just a 7th round flyer. Hopefully it's Foxworth pt 2.

I found this...

2009 Scouting Report - Scouts Inc.
Grade: 67 | Key

Comment: Hill is a third-year player who only started four games last year due to injury. He is an athletically gifted player with good agility and straight-line speed. He has smooth hips with quick feet and good acceleration. He excels in man coverage due to his ability to flip and run without giving up much separation. He has very good speed to run deep. He's an aggressive player in man coverage who will challenge receivers early in routes and is not afraid to try and make plays on the ball down field. A confident player in his speed to close quick and make up ground as the ball arrives. When playing off the ball he will often shuffle to gain depth. He has a good short burst to close on an angle but is somewhat inconsistent as a tackler. Against the run, he will give effort to make plays but not a consistently physical force on the outside. Hill is a solid starter when healthy who still has upside and hasn't reached his full potential yet.

perfect fit for our scheme

Tye Hill and Travis Johnson traded in the same week, kind of sad. Hopefully they can turn things around in different schemes. I always wanted to see Johnson play some end in a 3-4.

Good pickup. My dad should be content.

KCJ58 09-01-2009 04:41 PM

he sucks ass

kiranadwaney 09-01-2009 05:41 PM

this is a good move we need help at corner as we saw against san deigo

Bosanac01 09-01-2009 06:57 PM

We released Von Hutchins and Ben Hartsock.

D-Rod 09-03-2009 04:51 PM

Definitely worth a flyer. I can't see him having much impact before the bye week, but he may be pushing for a starting spot after that.

Bosanac01 09-03-2009 06:31 PM

I could see that. Considering how bad our CBs are, it may be even sooner. He had about 2 weeks before the first game.

Falcon<3 10-24-2009 01:04 PM

I really hope he's on the field this week. We really need him to make an impact...and now. I know it was a low round pick that we couldn't have normally gotten a talent like that for, but if he's too stupid to figure out this system by now we wasted that pick. With Williams out he has to step up.

ATLDirtyBirds 12-29-2009 09:47 PM

Well, not Foxy pt. 2

Bosanac01 12-29-2009 10:39 PM
