I think the hype machine is moving at full steam with this kid and we are getting a bit ahead of ourselves. I think he has potential and great measurables but I still see him in the 36-44 range come draft time. Guys like Blackmon, Floyd, and Wright had people arguing their positions all season...Hill didn't come into the picture until he ran his 40. Granted every year some burner or monster sneaks into the 1st round who was never seriously talked about and Hill could be that guy.

every year we all overestimate one main guy and I think he's it this year
He only had a few hundred less yards than Demaryius Thomas did his last year at GT. But Thomas' measurables were 6-3 224 4.52. Hill has him there at 6-4 215 4.36.
Going back a few years for 1st round WR's.
We get an avg of 2.8 WR's being drafted in the 1st. Granted its a meaningless number but looking at this years class I only see 3 true first round talents. If we pull the trigger I will support the pick and Hill regardless, I just think we can be crafty and trade back and still get Hill a little later.
