Originally posted by 5280High:Much appreciated as always, one constuctive criticism would be puttnig Hill before Wright. Hills measurements are off the charts, but Wright was very impressive at his proday, is much more polished at this point in his routes, and breaks in & out of them on a dime. In my pretend GM opinion there just isnt enough film on the Hill showing things that are succesful at the NFL level to justify picking him over Wright that early.
Would definitly like the draft to fall that way cause I would dump my Fleener crush for Upshaw in a heartbeat and wave goodbye to Parys. But I dont see him or Barron lasting that long.
Every year, the draft throws everyone a curve all. This year, I think someone will gamble a bit and use a top 20 pick on Hill. The upside is greater than any receiver this year. Any tall WR that can burn like Hill, you have to seriously consider, and I think teams fall in love with the potential.
Had a chance to watch portions of his Pro-Day and the kid looks sharp in his breaks.
Rarely do I get suckered into measurables in putting a grade on a player (I think Sanu is going to be really good in the NFL), but I have Hill as the second best WR in this draft?
One final note: while there are a number of sub 6' talented WR's in the NFL, I think teams are a but conservative with their first rounders and height at the position. Some see Wright limited to the slot at the next level, and this may impact his draft status
