Honest question, what video did you watch that showed Hill showcasing seperation skills? Everything I've found shows CB's stride for stride with him 80-90% of the time, but he uses his size very well to wall off the CB and highpoint the catch... just doesnt seperate. IMO Randle wins that one. And then blocking probably a tie.
Another thing to keep in mind is the time it'll take for them to be brought up to an NFL level.
You be the judge. Pick #1 or #2.
#1 Release: Has exceptional length, reach, and power in hands, and easily negates the press. Not overly sudden, needs some steps to get to top speed. Tends to release a bit high and upright. Not overly explosive initially, but top speed is impressive once attained. 4.36 40 6.88 3-cone
#2 Release: Good strength to push the cornerback onto his heels in tight coverage and has the burst to step back, space and snatch the quick out. Smooth accelerator who can get behind the defense with good playing speed but needs to do a better job of using his hands to gain separation when pressed.
4.55 40 6.99 3-cone.
#2 Blocking: Top grade here. Has outstanding range, technique, and power. Consistently dominated smaller DBs and had success blocking LBs. Was a focus blocker on the GaTech offense with plays designed to run behind his blocks. 14 225 reps.
#1 Blocking: Takes pride in his role as a blocker, showing significant improvement in this area in 2011 from 2010. Possesses very good size as well as good strength and effort to contain his target. Looks to get involved downfield to spring one of his teammates. 15 225 reps.
