2012 Draft

Steelers Host WR Stephen Hill & T Mitchell Schwartz Tuesday For Pre Draft Visits

The Pittsburgh Steelers announced on Tuesday that Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill and California offensive lineman Mitchell Schwartz are in town for pre draft visits.

Hill measured in at the NFL combine at 6036 and weighed 215 pounds. He reportedly ran a 4.36 40 time to go along with a 4.48 short shuttle time. He put up 14 reps on the bench and had a vertical jump of 39 1/2 inches to go along with a 11\’01” broad jump. He is a raw route runner that has both the length and speed to play at the next level. He uses his physical nature to separate quickly off of the line of scrimmage and is not afraid to block on running plays. He can work both inside and on the edge and tracks the ball well in flight as he uses his body to shield defenders. Hill is currently rated as a late first round or early second round prospect.

Schwartz measures in at 6051 and weighs 318 pounds. He ran a 5.45 40 time at the combine to go along with a 4.87 short shuttle time. He put 23 reps on the bench and posted a 26 1/2 vertical jump to go along with a 7\’05” broad jump. He is not an overly physical lineman, but did play on both sides during his career at California. On tape his agility is evident and is good getting to the second level. He does redirect well in pass protection and is able to hand off well on switches. He projects as a right tackle at the next level that could kick inside should the need arise due to his mobility and short area quickness.
