Draftee Wideout who I think could be our Number 1 WR.

First let me give a few options than present the Player who I would like to see the Vikings go after.

Note that I'm not considerate of drafting any WR in this draft in the Top 5.

Going through the above options, one of these scouts stands out to me as a potential #1 DEEP play-making receiver that the Vikings could use.

That scout being Stephen Hill of Georgia Tech. Just so happens to be the same school Calvin Johnson attended. If anyone isn't aware of who Stephen Hill is, he's a first starter Wideout who opted to go through the draft, who is a freakish athlete. His stats:

CAREER STATS RECEIVING RUSHING
SEASON REC YDS AVG LNG TD ATT YDS AVG LNG TD
2011 28 820 29.3 82 5 4 29 7.3 24 0
2010 15 291 19.4 79 3 3 34 11.3 16 0
2009 6 137 22.8 53 1

I'll also post a video Highlight of him.

One other reason of me bringing up Calvin Johnson's name, other than the school's both Hill and Johnson attended, was to compare Calvin's Combine to Hill's.

First here are Johnson's stats:

Height: 6'5' Weight: 235 lbs, Arm Length: 33 3/8, 40 yard dash: 4.35, Vertical: 45 inches, Broad Jump: 11'7.

and again here's Hill's:

Stephen Hill (Georgia Tech)

6'4* 215 33 3/8*** 4.36* 39.5* 11'1*

As you can see, both are freakish athletes and compare fairly similar, with Calvin obviously being the better, however Stephen Hill could be the missing Wideout for a deep threat that the Vikings desperately need. He's projected to go between the 1st and 2nd round. Whomever the Vikings select with their first, being Kalil or Morris, IF the 2nd rounds roles around and Hill is sitting there the Vikings should heavily consider him. With this being said, selecting Kalil first may be the best situation for this plan to pan out, because if Morris is selected, the Vikings may be looking at OLine with this pick and DBs later.

Heading into the 2012 draft season, there were a lot of questions about Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill and how his one year of college football dominance would translate to the NFL.

An underclassman who declared early to enter the 2012 NFL Draft, Hill is a physical specimen with all of the tools to be a top-flight wide receiver at the next level. Combining great size (6'4'', 215 pounds) with tremendous speed, he was an interesting prospect who was difficult to place prior to the NFL Scouting Combine.
