Stephen Hill #87 WR
Height: 6-4 Weight: 215 Age: 24
Born: 4/25/1991 Tucker , GA
College: Georgia Tech
Experience: 3rd season
High School: Miller Grove HS [Lithonia, GA]
Selected By: New York Jets
Pick (Overall): 11 (43)
Hill is an early entry junior receiver out of Georgia Tech who started consistently for the past two years and was the sole deep threat in a run-first offense. He has great length and an outstanding catch radius, which along with his speed make him a serious deep-threat option in the NFL. He has a thin frame and will be hurt by the fact that he ran a very basic route tree at Georgia Tech, and teams won't be able to utilize him for much more than go routes at this point in his career. He is a splash player who was No. 1 in the nation in yards per catch; he has fourth-round value based off his all-around body of work but could impress a team with his size and speed enough to ascend significantly throughout the pre-draft process. If the rest of his game can catch up to the ability he shows in the deep passing game, Hill could be the sleeper of this year's draft.
