Since the Redskins do not play the Dolphins this year on the regular schedule, he gives his insights on what he might do to cover the Cheetah and the Penguin. I would say the best thing to do is to attack the offensive line to disrupt Tua, but Tua has shown to be able to make quick decisions and avoid the pressure, and he delivers very accurate passes on short passing downs. How would you defend Hill and Waddle (knowing that if you double team them you will leave Gesicki wide open)?

But here’s the problem: Hill excels on short and deep passes. Though many visualize Hill catching deep passes — and he does — most of his damage is done on short or intermediate throws that he converts into long gains.

Per PFF’s Ryan Smith, Hill was targeted on deep passes (20 or more yards downfield) just 17.9% of the time last season, which was 51st among all receivers and tight ends with at least 50 targets.

And per NBC’s Lawrence Jackson, 70.9% of Hill’s targets in 2021 were caught anywhere from 0 to 20 yards from the line of scrimmage; another 13.7% were caught behind the line of scrimmage. Waddle wasn’t targeted deep much last year — he caught only four passes that traveled more than 20 air yards — but was an accomplished deep threat at Alabama.

Waddle did most of his damage last season with short and intermediate routes, and yards after catch. “Waddle is so explosive, it looks like he’s coming out of the box in a 100-meter race,” former Pro Bowl receiver Chad Johnson said.

Let this get you excited about Hill, Waddle, and Gesicki on passing downs. Try to stop that.
