Report Prepared: February 18, 2012

After a sub-par sophomore season where Hill dropped several passes, he bounced back in his junior campaign to become one of college football's biggest big-play threats. In 2011, Hill only caught 28 passes in Georgia Tech's triple option offense; however, his receptions resulted in a gaudy 820 yards, which led the nation in yards per catch at 29.3. The concern is that Hill remains a raw prospect, as the Rambling Wreck are not known for their sophistication in the aerial game. He will have to "hit the books" on the receiving route tree in an NFL playbook, as his routes will need a lot of work. Hill had some notable drops over his career, mostly due to lack of concentration. And to be fair, he's also demonstrated spectacular leaping ability and rare hand strength to make some amazing catches (easily understood based on the passing ability of Georgia Tech QB's). Despite receiving an unfavorable grade from the NFL committee, Hill has decided to take his talents to the NFL. If he was enrolled at a program that had a better passing attack, he definitely could have used another year at school to refine his route running ability. Regardless, scouts will fall in love with Hill's size and playmaking ability. He is probably a 3rd round pick but with a good combine and a good pro day he could rise to the 2nd round.
