Wide receiver Stephen Hill turned on the afterburners during his 40-yard dash. He unofficially ran a 4.30 and a 4.31, but later his official time was changed to 4.36.
So who is Stephen Hill?
He's a long-armed deep threat out of Georgia Tech. The wideout's combination of size and speed has most analysts comparing him to former Yellow Jacket Demaryious Thomas, but optimists think he just might be the next Randy Moss.
Hill has the tangibles that make scouts drool; however he's leaving school after a junior year in which he only caught 28 passes. Despite the lack of catches, Hill posted a staggering, 820 yards last season. Yes, that's roughly 30 yards per catch.
Hopefully, Hill will further develop his route running abilities because he cannot be a one-trick pony in the NFL. He's got raw talent, but you can't coach height and speed.
In New England, Hill could spread the field to alleviate the pressure built up underneath for Wes Welker, Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski.
With Hill's stock rising, the Pats should consider him in Round 2 or 3. That is, if the speed-loving Oakland Raiders don't draft him first.
