Right now, Hillman has the ability to be a decent change of pace back. He has above average acceleration and top end speed. He's broken runs for decent gains in every game where he's gotten more than a couple of carries. He's also made some critical catches on 3rd down (including yesterday.)
That being said, he clearly doesn't have the offense down and the game is still too fast for him (probably because he's so young.) He needs to get a full off-season in the weight room and bulk up 10-15 pounds so he can be more effective between the tackles. But I agree, that he's not ready to be a feature back yet. And he may never be more than a change of pace back.
