Consistent has been the term used to describe Hill’s game the most. Hill is a talented receiver that I had the opportunity to scout while he was in high school. Hill’s game has grown a great deal since his playing days at North Little Rock High School and he is another Ohio State Buckeyes wide receiver that will have the opportunity to play on Sundays.
Hill’s route running is what will catch the eyes of scouts and team representatives. K.J. does a good job of working his way back to the quarterback and making himself open for the quarterback to deliver the ball. Hill is an intelligent, instinctive player and always finds a way to create an opening for the quarterback to deliver the football. Hill protects the football as well; he does not fumble or turn the ball over.
Hill does not have a great deal of leaping ability to outjump defenders for the football. Hill is only 5’10”, 198 pounds so he relies heavily on his quickness and his speed. Hill needs to work on defeating press coverage and become more physical in the process.
Hill is a consistent player and will be dangerous running the underneath routes. I have Hill projected at a late third round to early fourth round selection. Hill has talent and his productivity has been impressive, teams that love the underneath routes will make Hill a priority.
