Stephen Hill invited to NFL combine | Georgia Tech
some predictions have him as high as a second round pick. mel kiper says he could be third round if he makes an impression at combine.
Stephen Hill was an enigma at TECH and so is his draft status. I wouldn't be surprised to see him go in the third round and, by the same token, I wouldn't be surprised to see him un-drafted. For sure, his measures will rank very highly among his peers. His size, speed, broad jump, and leaping ability will be among the best. However, the word 'inconsistent' is an understatement when describing his pass catching abilities. For his sake, I really hope he has a good week holding on to thrown balls.
Hope He does really well in the combine! Good luck! : encouragement:
Hill should be considered a "pass route runner" moreso than a receiver until he learns to catch a dang football.
He is already big enough and fast enough, and if he COULD turn it around (learn to catch), become anything even CLOSE to the likes of BayBay and Megatron, having three receivers in NFL having success sure wouldn't hurt GT's future recruiting of WR's that go to NFL.
For the sake of GT's recruiting, good luck to the kid!
In the past GT football has often been JUST GOOD ENOUGH TO BREAK YOUR HEART!
I believe we are on the way to getting where we all want to be - Win Championships, and be more competitive with UGa and Bowl Games.
QB's looking up, WR's coming along(?), Welcome CTR, CMP and new AD, We have some good recruiters with a good class coming, Stamps back to ST's, all 3 phases should be better this year than last. We have team speed to match anyone we play.
What's not to like?
Good luck to him. I hopes he impresses, gets a good draft spot and goes on to have a successful NFL career.
