Draft Analysis:

The former Oklahoma State Cowboy is a track star with big time explosiveness but only average football instincts. He can be an instant surge for their return game but has a ways to go as an NFL receiver. --Mark Dulgerian

Analysis

Strengths

Has the ability to turn one missed tackle into a touchdown. Had a rushing touchdown of 62 yards and catches of 79, 68 and 65 this season. Ridiculous play speed. Track star in junior college and at Oklahoma State holding school records for indoor 60 and 200 meter dashes. Nimble athlete with light feet allowing him to elude tacklers in space. Produced four return touchdowns (2 kickoffs and 2 punts) in 2015.

Weaknesses

Not very tough as a runner. Willing to go quietly into the turf once defender starts to make contact. Hands get shaky when headed into the middle of the field. Feast or famine returner who is too willing to dance and stall waiting for the perfect hole to open up. Was kicked off of Oklahoma State football team and handed three-year probation (August, 2015) after pleading guilty to punching and choking his girlfriend.

Draft Projection

Undrafted free agent

Bottom Line

Despite an inability to dominate a lower level of competition as a receiver, Hill's electric speed and ability to hit the big play -- ­especially in the punt return department -- could intrigue teams. However, his domestic violence charge makes it unlikely that he gets drafted and could prevent teams from even bringing him into camp.
