To appreciate Omarius Hines, the best way is from the back. Hines has the ass and legs of an Olympic speedskater. Which would be great if he was a wideout. Now asked to fill the role once occupied by Cornelius Ingram and Aaron Hernandez, Hines has to get bigger up top.
Physically, all the tools seem to be there. He is also embracing his new role and working hard to become the No. 1 tight end over Jordan Reed. But Hines needs to become a featured part of the offense this season to give the Gators a proper threat at tight end.
