2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech

Hill did not see a ton of action at wide receiver in his three years at Georgia Tech (since he was playing in a triple-option offense), but he certainly made the most of his opportunities. He averaged 22.8 yards per reception as a freshman, 19.4 as a sophomore, and (with a much larger sample size because he had 28 catches) a ridiculous 29.3 as a junior. Hill caught 820 yards worth of balls and scored five touchdowns. He also had a few carries out of the backfield every year due to his speed and he found the endzone once during his freshman campaign. Although many experts felt Hill should have gone back to school, he is taking his talents to the next level in 2012.

The Lithonia, GA native has outstanding size at 6'5'' and 206 pounds--without question his greatest asset heading into the NFL. At least it was until the NFL combine. Hill was expected to run around a 4.5 in the 40-yard dash or maybe in the 4.4s. Instead, he turned in a blistering 4.36 and his combination of size and speed will not be ignored. He is extremely dangerous with the ball in the open field and he is prone to the spectacular catch. He had some drops with the Yellow Jackets, but he more than made up for those with occasional brilliance. Hill's only real downside is that he has never been a part of a pro-style offense and it remains to be seen how consistent he can be day in and day out. Hill is raw, but his talent warrants a late first-round selection in April's draft.

I think Cleveland Should Draft Floyd and Hill with their 4th and 22nd pick in First Round, that way you have two big recievers plus Greg Little from last year and you woulld have three good young receivers and draft a QB in the second round the guy from Arizona State or the QB from Michigan State. Then in thrid round Pick a Good OL in the Fourth Rd Pick Running Back and go from their.
