    You have to say that the Combine 40 times for these two were kind of damaging.

    Maybe for Mack but I'd say most expected Hill to run around a 4.6. His game isn't built on speed. I don't think it hurts or helps; it just confirms what we previously assumed

    No one has more receptions at Ohio State in a career than KJ Hill. He shined during the combine drills. Everyone saw that. His 40 time means squat.

    K.J. HILL
    Ohio State's most precise route-runner, K.J. Hill's draft stock was mostly stagnant throughout the season. After starting as a consensus third-round pick, Hill has fallen off slightly and now looks to be on the fringe of a Day Two selection (pick No. 97.74). This year's class of receivers is as good as they come, contributing to Hill's slight decline.

    With Terry McLaurin's spectacular rookie season last year, it should not be a surprise if Hill is able to replicate his success. Although he is not the deep threat that McLaurin is, his ability to separate and consistent hands will help him be a reliable target during the most important plays of the season.

    SKULL SESSION: JONAH JACKSON AND KJ HILL ARE DRAFT SLEEPERS, HOW JUSTIN FIELDS IS PRACTICING WHILE QUARANTINED, AND THE STATUS OF AN NCAA VIDEO GAME

    SLEEPERS OF THE DRAFT.
    Ohio State produced two of the best overall players in the draft, but it also looks like they've produced two of the most underrated, according to Pro Football Focus.

    5. WR K.J. HILL, OHIO STATE

    Pound-for-pound the best route-runner in the entire draft class, Hill creates separation on the underneath route tree like no other. That still plays in the NFL. He doesn’t have good speed (4.6 40 at the Combine), doesn’t have a big catch radius and is likely stuck in the slot, but I have no doubt he’ll be a productive NFL receiver. He won all but one of his routes in the one-on-ones during the Senior Bowl practices, and his ability to get off the line of scrimmage is already incredibly advanced. Throw out the yardage totals in the Ohio State offense — Hill gets open.

    You'd think NFL decision-makers would have figured out that it generally pays to just go ahead and pick the Buckeye when all else is equal. I mean, we did this with Michael Thomas and Terry McLaurin already. But maybe they just need a little nudge.
