Georgia Tech’s Stephen Hill lights up the 40-yard dash

Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill has just done a whole lot to improve his NFL draft stock.

Hill put up a sensational 40-yard dash time of 4.30 seconds on Sunday morning in Indianapolis. That’s easily the best time we’ve seen so far. On his other attempt he ran in 4.31 seconds, so he actually has the two fastest 40 times of the 2012 Scouting Combine to date.

A 6-foot-4, 215-pounder, Hill has good size to go with his good speed. There’s no question that he’s opening some eyes this weekend.

The question is whether Hill can develop into a consistent threat while playing in an NFL passing game. While playing in a run-first option offense at Georgia Tech, he caught just 49 passes in his college career.
