culliver also was good in college he was only injured
hill (although i like him) has not produced in college at all he is just a complete potential pick
1000 yards on 28 catches is production. You simply don't know that much about him because he went to GT.
Erroneous on all accounts!
GT has had high profile receivers for awhile... everyone knew about Demaryius, and then of course Calvin was untouchable for 2 years. The simple fact is Hill, even with his ridiculous YPC, was a late second/third roung pick until his 40 time. His highlight reels are showcasing his best plays and even then he doesn't seperate from college level CB's. NFL CB's are talented enough to keep stride for stride while also playing the ball,so allot of those plays would not be catches. If left untouched, then yes he'll be the fastest player running straight but in the NFL that doesnt happen. He will be jammed, re-routed, and arm-barred... so he is a complete potential pick because he hasn't seen that before and will have to learn how to counter those moves along with how to run routes which can take a couple offseasons. Randle is a much safer pick and doesnt give that much up to Hill in terms of size or speed, and is twice as quick.
