He's going to be the TD man in Cleavland when they get to the red-zone.

He has the potential to be a Rathman kind of back, but the FB in that offense isn't an offensive star. Maybe a Howard Griffith type guy.

I figure he'll get 5-10 carries a game and be a solid, if unspectacular, power back.

The real story though will be what he does away from the gridiron, becoming one of the all-time great crossover sports stars when he takes his golfing game to the next level, leaving Augusta with the 2011 Masters Championship.

I predict he will run for an 80 yard TD on his first carry, bowling over and stiff arming defenders....and then he will literally run through the stadium, bricks and all, continuing into Lake Erie, never to be seen again.

Folk songs will be written, statues will be erected, and the legend will grow.

What value did he have with the Razorbacks? Whatever he did there I think he will do with the Browns. They look like a team that will be running a lot of wild cat offense.

This is something I have been worried about. Cleveland landing a star like Hillis.

Is it any coincidence that the HOF is in Ohio? I wouldn't be surprised to start hearing whispers of Hillis and the Nobel Prize in the same sentence. The sky's the limit.

I doubt he'll hit 1200 yds unless he is the starting back in a Mike Shanahan led offense.

I think it's very possible that he turns into an Edgar Bennett type back with a nose for the redzone/short yardage. 900 yds, 300 yds receiving, 5-8 TD's is very reasonable for his skillset.

He'll be a part of the solution assisting in turning around the doormant Browns running game.

There is a good chance Holmgren can coach Hillis into the first 7 tool back in the history of the NFL. There really is no limit as to the heights Hillis can rise.

This trade will be mentioned right up there with the Hershel Walker trade.

Denver will be remembered in infamy not for the Jay Cutler trade but for the trade that sent maybe the best all around back ever to play the game for a pretty boy backup QB.
