Diamond Report

Overview:

WR/Slot/KR/ST Kyle Hill is an explosive tough wideout that can go across the middle or over the top. Long Lean tough wideout with blazing quickness & amazing extension. Has the athletic ability to make DB’s look silly. Kyle also has the toughness needed to make grabs in traffic or block in the run game or on special teams. Consistently putting up good numbers in college & everything I have seen thus far after the season like the National Bowl watched Hill make some nice grabs both in practice & in the game.

In the Pass Game:

Knows the route tree like a Pro never quits on plays goes hard when he breaks off the top of routes. Top flight fluidity smooth cuts in both his route running & his YAC yardage. Ridiculous Catch radius ability to go up highpoint balls horizontally to vertically gifted. Able to sneak in between the combination coverages. Ball Tracking skills are outstanding strong hands can find the ball in traffic & pick it out the air secures the ball. Great sideline awareness understands how to use it, knows how to tap the toes for the completion. Not afraid to go across the middle uses his shiftiness to avoid incident but can bounce off defenders as well at times. Avoids tackles with his elusive athleticism his Stop n Go is so natural it almost looks effortless.  Comes off the line with speed & intensity. Super athletic pass catcher that can be a special talent as a shifty tough slot wideout in the NFL.

Blocking & Special Teams

Shows good effort/ willingness in the blocking game uses good pad level as well as quickness to block or get in the way of defenders. Understands blocking schemes on screenplays & bubble passes. As a slot receiver, he is naturally a tough player &  Has shown some explosiveness in the return game. Snaking through traffic with his 4.4 speed intense focus he could be a day one starter on ST. He has also shown he can navigate his way through coverage to make tackles on the return team. ST Coaches could pound the table for Hill due to his speed & versatility.

Summary:

These slot wide outs are asked to do a lot these days.

Kyle Hill is sort of the Swiss Army knife of prospects with the heart of a warrior.

Consistently putting up big numbers in the passing game he has shown he can be a weapon in the return game Hill looked good at the National Bowl now he aims to turn some heads at the BSN combine in Indy. Think with some good numbers with individual drills could be the cherry on top of Hill’s hardworking offseason.   He could find his way into being a day 3 sleeper or priority Free Agent next April. Hill could be a star in an RPO, West-Coast or Spread style offense in the slot he has the toughness mixed with inspired athletic ability. You can tell just by talking with Kyle his passion & his determination to take every opportunity presented to him. One of my favorite small school wide out’s cause he is a dynamic, fun & game-changing prospect to watch. Mark my words, Kyle Hill will be suiting up on Sundays in the near future.
