2012 NFL Draft, New York Giants: Final Thoughts On Stephen Hill

Throughout the day today I will post some 'final thoughts on many of the players to whom the New York Giants have been connected with their selection Thursday night in the 2012 NFL Draft. That pick, of course, is the 32nd and final one of the evening.

Thought I would start with Stephen Hill, the Georgia Tech wide receiver I selected for the Giants in my own mock draft.

Interesting post on Hill today in Pro Football Talk, detailing how he has risen from a player told he had no chance to be a first-round selection to a player who today seems unlikely to last into the second round.

Why The Giants Should Select Him

The Giants, of course, lost Mario Manningham and have no obvious replacement for him. Candidates, yes. Someone you know can do the job? No. At 6-foot-4, 209 with blazing 4.3 40-yard dash speed Hill offers size, athleticism and potential to replace -- or surpass -- what Manningham did for New York. The NFL is a big-play league, and Hill is a guy who could provide them.

Why The Giants Should Not Select Him

Hill is raw, the Giants' passing attack is among the NFL's most intricate in terms of the reads between the quarterback and the receivers and there is no telling how long it will take Hill to figure it out. Also, the Giants have other areas that need more immediate help.
