A versatile performer who was a wide receiver for part of his college career at North Carolina State and is also a dangerous kick returner, Hines could provide PPR value immediately as a pass-catching back with blazing speed. He ran a 40 time of 4.38 seconds at the NFL scouting combine. The Colts drafted Hines early in the fourth round, and he figures to immediately become their primary satellite back.
Hines measured 5-foot-8, 197 pounds at the combine, so he probably isnít going to get a heavy dose of carries at the pro level. He probably isnít going to challenge either Marlon Mack or fellow rookie Jordan Wilkins for early-down carries or goal-line work.
A dynamic playmaker whoís good as a receiver and excels in space, Hines could quickly become useful in PPR leagues.
