That’s right, Stephen Hill, the Georgia Tech speedster.

We have talked about this young man at length, but take a look at his video again, just for fun:

Stephen can flat out fly. A 4.36 forty yard dash at the combine proves that in spades.

6’4″ 215 pounds is a great size for an NFL wide receiver. In the red zone, Hill is going to be a major factor. Just send him to the corner of the endzone and put the ball up. He will be able to take the ball off the top of most defensive backs in this league.

As far as his skill set is concerned, look at that tape for all of the evidence you need. He is the size of Plaxico Burress, but he can get separation. As we saw, that was a bit of a problem with Mr. Burress last year, despite his TD production. Hill is tall, can run and has great hands. It doesn’t make a difference that the Georgia Tech offense only afforded him 49 catches over 3 years. He has skills. 29.3 yards per catch last year? He is a threat.

On the next page we will talk about the Ground and Pound at it’s peak.
