Hartline is a little overrated on this site. He's a good player, but the slot would be best for him. If Jennings comes to Miami, he's taking #1 slot and honestly, I wouldn't be shocked if Matthews beats out Hartline for the #2 spot. Matthews is more talented than Hartline. He dropped down the draft because of his unimpressive 40 time but the guy has game speed and he has talent. This offseason is going to be huge for him.
Hartline is the opposite of a slot receiver. Long strides and tall. Bess runs crisp routes with short strides that create seperation. Hartline battled with Patrick Peterson and Antonio Cromartie last year and won those battles... The kid has moves, and is a legit wideout. Do i want him at his asking price? No. But he'd be a nice complement to a guy like Megatron or AJ Green..
Is it possible that he could find the end zone 4-5 times? Sure. He hasn't demonstrated any sort of ability to do so, though, and for the team to shell out somewhere in the neighborhood of 5-6 million per year to find out isn't the wisest course of action, I'm afraid. I'd bet money he won't approach the catch and yardage numbers if the team has other options, also. So, let's just say for ****s and giggles that Hartline does score 5 TDs next season. He would probably do so with around 50 catches for about 700-some odd yards. Is that really worth that kind of money?
