    Look at the tape. You will actually see him winning contested catches against bigger corners. The kid may not be big, but he is tough and he knows how to fight for the ball.

    He loses much more than he wins in that area but if he can continue to get separation at the pro level as he did in college then he hopefully won’t be in the position where he needs to make contested catches very often.

    To make the most of this guys abilities, he is going to need to get the ball in space.

    What Tyreek Hill does is no small feat, it’s expecting a lot out of a rookie.

    I haven't seen nearly enough tape to see him losing on contested catches more than he wins. If you have, you've watched a lot more of him than I have so far.

    Who is expecting him to match Tyreek Hill?
