 K.J. Hill, Ohio State, Player News

  04/29/20 - WR K.J. HillrSr/2020, Ohio State, 6-0, 196 (DS#23 WR) + More +

  As the NFL draft wound down Saturday afternoon, Ryan Day admitted feeling confused and a little frustrated. K.J. Hill, who left Ohio State as its all-time receptions leader and was viewed as a possible mid-round selection, had slipped into the seventh round before he was picked by the Los Angeles Chargers with the 220th overall pick. "All he does is get open, catch the ball, make great plays, the most productive receiver in Ohio State history. I don't get that one at all," said Day, the Buckeyes' coach. "The Chargers got a complete steal. I think a lot of guys missed on him." Speaking with reporters on a teleconference Sunday, Day offered thoughts on a draft that saw 10 players out of Ohio State taken, tied for the second-most from any school behind LSU, which had 14 of its former players taken. Out of all the selections over the three-day draft, Day considered Hill's fall to be one of the biggest mysteries. Hill does not offer a ton of size. He measured 6 feet and 196 pounds at the NFL's scouting combine in February. That means he might be limited to a role as a slot receiver. And he wasn't particularly fast in individual drills. He clocked 4.6 seconds in the 40-yard dash in Indianapolis, a time eclipsed by more than a dozen other wide receiver prospects.

But Day, a former quarterbacks coach in the NFL, found other traits from Hill to be desirable, especially his sure-handedness and route-running precision. "I'm not sitting here telling anybody how to do their business," Day said. "But I just know that some great coaches have said the best receivers get open and they catch the ball. It doesn't really matter at the end of the day what you run or anything like that. "Do you get open? Do you catch the ball? If you're not fast enough to get open, or you can't catch the ball, that's a problem. But I've never seen anybody cover K.J. Hill on a consistent basis. I think it'll be the same way once he gets to the NFL." - Columbus Dispatch

  Three of Ohio State's top four receivers last season were seniors, leaving Hill as the top returning pass catcher and increasingly in the spotlight. Hill has displayed notable consistency throughout his college career, totaling 144 catches over the previous three seasons. He sits 47 shy of reaching David Boston atop Ohio State's career receptions list. He is currently sixth, two catches from moving within the top five. "I mean, I don't have words for it," Hill said. "It's like, 'Wow David Boston, people like that.' You just think, wow. K.J. Hill is now a name in there people are going to be talking about. And that's one of the reasons why I came back, I want to leave my legacy." As productive as Hill was in previous seasons, he was also sure-handed, an important trait to help a first-year starting quarterback. - Columbus Dispatch
