NFL Draft 2012: Georgia Tech WR Stephen Hill Has Tools To Become A Pro Starter

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are losing a talented wide receiver a year early to the 2012 NFL Draft. Wide receiver Stephen Hill announced his intent to enter the draft as a junior and could potentially make a splash in the pros sooner rather than later.

Wes Bunting of the National Football Post recently posted an article about Hill, suggesting that the Yellow Jackets wideout might be the best big play threat in this year's NFL Draft.

Has a unique skill set, can pluck off his frame, track the football and is the next big time talent from the Georgia Tech program. Is going to need some time to develop, but can come in and track football vertically early on. Has a lot of upside to his game and the skill set says he's an NFL starter.

Bunting notes that Hill is an underclassman and that he has no notable weaknesses, but will definitely need time and development to realize his full potential. He grades him as a player will all the tools to become a pro starter, but will need to overcome his inconsistencies in order to succeed.
