ATLANTA — Former Georgia Tech receiver Stephen Hill hopes he's getting closer to becoming a high pick in the NFL draft.Comment on this story
After creating a buzz by running the 40-yard dash in 4.31 seconds at the NFL scouting combine two weeks ago, Hill caught all 12 passes thrown to him in a pro day workout Tuesday on campus.
Hill now must convince teams that he's worthy of a high second-round pick — or even better — despite spending his college career in the Yellow Jackets' triple-option, run-oriented offense. He caught just 49 passes in a three-year career, but averaged an impressive 25.5 yards per reception.
Since reporting to the combine, Hill has advanced his cause considerably. All 32 NFL teams had representatives watching him Tuesday.
