Stephen Hill
Round 2, Pick 43
Position: WR
Class:  Jr
School: Georgia Tech
HT: 6'4"
WT: 200 lbs.
40 Time: 4.3
Conference: ACC
Biography: Two-year starter who posted 28 receptions/820 yards/5 TDs as a junior with an average of 29.3 yards per reception. Sophomore totals included 15/291/3 with a 19.4 yard average.

Positives: Big, athletic receiver with tremendous upside. Smooth releasing off the line of scrimmage, immediately gets to top speed and plays to his forty time. Presents himself as a downfield threat with the ability to consistently stretch the defense. Fights with his hands throughout the action to separate from opponents, displays adequate eye/hand coordination and makes some amazingly athletic receptions. Gets vertical and adjusts to make the difficult catch in midair. Consistently catches the pass away from his frame. Works hard to come back into the clearing to make himself a free target for the quarterback. Keeps the play inbounds running after the catch and works to pick up positive yardage. Effectively picks up blocking assignments, sealing the downfield lanes open for ballcarriers.

Negatives: Lets some catchable throws slip through his hands on occasion. Does not consistently extend his hands to offer the quarterback a target. Rarely asked to run precise routes in college.

Analysis: Hill was Georgia Tech's big play pass catching threat in their option offense and the home run hitting receiver opponents were forced to keep track of. He offers the size, athleticism and the pass-catching ability to be a productive number one receiver at the next level, but he?s still raw and must get acclimated to playing in a disciplined NFL offense.
