Back in 2002 and 2003, Dante Hall might have been the most exciting player in football. Dubbed “The Human Joystick,” he scored multiple kick and punt returns in consecutive seasons, and he did it in audacious fashion (watch that one on mute), with jukes and cutbacks that would be considered suicide for anybody a millisecond slower than him.
Fast forward to 2016, and the Chiefs again have the most dangerous return man in the league — rookie Tyreek Hill.
Hill was a fifth-round pick due to a combination of his anonymous college (West Alabama), his diminutive size (5’10, 185) and possibly, his conviction for beating and choking his pregnant girlfriend that got him kicked out of Oklahoma State University and put on probation until 2018. But his speed was no mystery. He ran a blazing 4.24 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, and now he’s out here putting that speed to work.
