K.J. Hill. player. Wide Receiver. Ohio State. 3. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 54

Rightfully so, most of the focus surrounding Ohio State in this year’s draft is on the defensive side of the football since Chase Young and Jeffrey Okudah are two of the best players from the class in general.

But if the Eagles are looking for an underrated playmaker on the other side of the football, K.J. Hill could end up being a solid option at wide receiver.

First off, one of the best factors behind bringing on someone like Hill is he wouldn’t feel the pressure to be the No. 1 or No. 2 wide receiver right away, and can sort of ease his way into a larger role over the next couple of years before once certain veterans are no longer around.

In fact, since Reagor is already officially part of the picture, chances are Hill would need to compete for playing time as a rookie, especially with J.J. Arcega-Whiteside looking to bounce back following a disappointing rookie campaign.

Not only did Hill find his way into the end zone 16 times in 28 games over the last two seasons with the Buckeyes, but his route-running ability is one of the best for remaining wide receivers waiting to hear their name called on the final day of the draft.
