What to expect from T.Y. Hilton

Nate Dunlevy gives us a history lesson in order to predict T.Y. Hilton’s first year:

From 2005-2011, there were 36 wideouts taken between picks 60 and 100 of the draft. That spans the very late second round all the way to the early fourth. Here’s what we can learn from those picks:

    • Only four started at least six games. None started more than nine.
    • 25 of 36 played in at least 10 games.
    • Only two had at least 40 catches. Only 15 had at least 20. Thirteen had fewer than 10 catches.
    • Only three had at least 600 yards receiving, and just six had 400 yards.
    • Two had six touchdowns, but only eight had more than one.
    • The average performance was 17 catches, 224 yards, and just under one touchdown each.

Don’t stop reading there–Nate has a few notable exceptions you may want to know about.
