Hill continuing Georgia Tech receiver trend
INDIANAPOLIS _ It is the most unlikely of things, but Georgia Tech may be turning into Wide Receiver U.
Of course, Calvin Johnson of the Detroit Lions leads the way, followed by Demaryius Thomas of the Broncos, who developed a rapport with Tim Tebow this year in Denver.
Now, another Tech wideout made a splash at the NFL Combine as receiver Stephen Hill ran a 4.30 unofficial time in the 40-yard dash, an amazing time for a receiver who stands 6-4 and weighs 215 pounds.
The oddest part, of course, is that the Yellow Jackets run a version of the option and rarely through more than 10 passes a game a lot of the time. Nonetheless, Hill's stock likely rose quite a bit on Sunday in a draft that is stocked at the receiver position.
