28 catches for 800+ yards, keep in mind he was in a run heavy offense. Imagine if Hill was in a pass-first offense and had 30 more catches, that's 1,600 yards. But you need to look at more than just measureables and production, its about getting separation at the next level and creating mismatches. Sometimes production doesn't always equal production in the NFL but more so if a payer will fit into your system or complement your existing players and I believe Hill can do just that.
You know his yards would tail off if he was in a more balance offense.
He his YPC is so massive because he typically his man to man coverage and the box is load to stop the run, yes he beats double or bracket sometimes as well but you know as well as anyone that the reason he did so well is because of the run heavy offense. Had to been at a more balance program such as South Carolina or Alabama he probably wouldn't look anywhere near as flashy as he does in GT's triple option.
also we can't really expect the same kind of play that CJ or even Thomas puts on the field, they are both 20 pounds heavier then Hill is. Hill will be a lot less physical when you compare him to those two. The fact that he had already bulked up 10 pounds from his listed college weight gives us the indication that he will likely only be able to add at most another 5 pounds of muscle.
Hill is completely a boom or bust pick, just because he runs a 4.3 doesn't mean he'll be the best WR since Calvin Johnson, we're in a waiting game now and with the FO still wanting to give Crabtree the chance to prove himself as #1 I dont see it as a complete lock that we even go WR in the 1st.
