Good S! Wow, you called it bro. Someone just dug this thread up and now I'm going back reading it, this is a ballsy statement and you are 100% correct.

I was a Stephen Hill believer.

Jets ruined him, because I cannot be wrong!!

If we're talking about WRs we all pulled for, let it be stated on the record that I was a huge proponent of Keenan Allen.

The guy is an elite athlete who will get nasty in the running game. I love that about him.

But let's tap the brakes here a bit. The guy has tons of negatives:

-He ran about three different routes in his entire college career. The learning curve is going to be tremendous for him.

-From what I've seen, he has the ability to make the great catch but he is not a natural catcher. Too many wide open drops. I wouldn't say he fights the ball but he prefers to use his body instead of his hands.

-The reason his yards per catch is so high is because defenders are getting sucked up by the option game and he just uses his long speed to run past them. He is wide open because of the scheme, not because of his ability as a receiver.

There are reasons to be excited about him as a prospect. But he is a big time project. I don't 100% agree with the Jacoby Jones comparisons but he is way way closer to that than he is to the Calvin Johnsons of the league. I can easily think of about ten guys I would rather have, and most of them could be had later in the draft.
Bringing forward for props, as well.

I would say jury is still out on Hill. Consider his QBs Sanchez and Geno. Sanchez ranked 53rd w/ a QB rating of 66.9 and Smith ranked 50th w/ a QB Rating of 66.5.

Yep

He's the type of guy somebody like the Broncos will pick up on the cheap and start tearing it up.

Not really. What bothered me about hill was his 3 cone. Normally the 3 cone is .20 seconds faster than the 40, well his was worse. That means dropping ur weight and coming out a break. In short, hill is a 1 trick pony type who shouldn't have ever been drafted before the 3rd or 4th rd. He's a shot player type like meacham,devry henderson type.
