The St. Louis Rams placed Tye Hill on the IR Tuesday. Hill is still trying to come back from arthroscopic knee surgery. Hill has already missed the past nine game and the Rams have decided to put him on the shelf. Since the best we can do is 5-11 and Hill was struggling with confidence before the injury there is really no reason to rush him back into service. The Rams drafted Hill in the first round of the 2006 NFL draft as the 15th selection overall. Hill seems to have regressed since his rookie campaign when he had three interceptions. Since 06′ Hill has only played in 12 of the Rams last 30 games and does not seem to have the confidence it takes in the NFL to make plays on the ball. Coming out of Clemson Hill was known for his gambling style and confidence. What has become of Tye Hill, is he even in the Rams plans for 2009? As we all remember the Rams traded down in 2006 and passed on the opportunity of taking Jay Cutler. We may look back on this what-if for a long time.
