Rookie TE Hill Making an Impression as Camp Closes In

Texans training camp is closing in, and while this is a team that has a number of weapons, one player that will come in without much limelight is tight end Anthony Hill. Who you ask?

Yes, Anthony Hill, the teams 4th round pick of this past April’s draft out of North Carolina State. Hill is a guy that can make some plays, and at 6-6, 265 pounds from Houston, he has shown the coaches some good things playing for his hometown team.

“He’s caught the ball really well. I think that’s kind of been a surprise for us. He knows what he is doing route wise,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “He’ll get better just through repetitions and understanding exactly the pro game and that type of thing. I think that’s been a bonus. We knew we were getting a physical player, but I think it’s been a bonus that he can run routes pretty good.”

While unhappy Owen Daniels, who wants a long-term deal, continued to miss practice time with the team, it was Hill’s chance to shine. We’ll see if that time pays off when the team opens training camp at the end of the month.
