Andy Reid Compares Tyreke Hill To A Young DeSean Jackson


If it wasn’t for Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, Tyreke Hill would be the overwhelming favorite to win Rookie of the Year. Nonetheless, Hill is ‘quickly’ becoming a household name.

On the season, Hill has a grand total of 12 touchdowns.

When asked about the rookie, head coach Andy Reid kept it short and simple.

“I had DeSean Jackson and he kind of was the same,” Reid. “When he was young he did all of the return stuff, we moved him all around the offense, he took snaps as a quarterback, we had him everywhere. He made it to the Pro Bowl in two different positions — as a wide receiver and a returner.”

It’ll be interesting to see how Hill performs in his first playoff game next week.
