WR Jason Hill, #76 Overall Pick, San Francisco 49'ers
San Francisco 49'ers
selected Washington State WR Jason Hill
with the #76
overall selection (#12 in the 3rd round) in the 2007 NFL draft. Hill, surprised folks at the combine with a 4.3 40 time after a productive career in the Pac-10 with 32 career TD receptions. Hill joins a suddenly deep 49'ers receiving core but don't be surprised if he's starting by mid-season and in a few years is one of the better third round selections from this draft.
- Position: Wide Receiver
- Height: 6'1"
- Weight: 210
- 40 Time: 4.31
shocked the folks at the combine with one of the fastest times recorded. Many scouts feel he plays slower than his timed speed but he was a productive, big play receiver in the Pac-10 posting 158 career catches and 32 TD receptions in a little more than two full seasons of playing time. Hill runs good routes, fights for the ball and has shown good open field running ability. Doubters say he doesn't have sudden burst or much quickness on the field and has trouble getting separation but his production on the college level lacking a quality quarterback tell a different story.
