Couldn't disagree more. As others have mentioned he played in the big 10, that's a top conference.

As for project players, the WRs that would have been drafted at the end of rd 1 are projects. Hill may turn out to be a stud, but he could just as equally turn out to be another in a long line of guys that run really, really fast but can't make it the NFL as a WR.
