If the Rams prefer to take the lowest risk possible when seeking to upgrade their receiving group, they could look at a player like Austin Hill as a late-round pick or undrafted free agent. If Hill hadn’t suffered a rather gruesome torn ACL that kept him out for 2013 and limited him in 2014, he might be an early-round pick. Instead, he’s looking to prove his worth and will have to try to make a roster out of training camp.

When he’s healthy, Hill is a wideout with plus size and speed who can be a legitimate playmaker. Though he didn’t show these skills nearly as much during his 2014 comeback, he bounced back during this year’s East-West Shrine Game and may end up reaping the benefits with a selection in the draft.

Hill could be a good backup for both Brian Quick and Kenny Britt, and if he can show that he’s recovered at least most of his previous speed, he could develop into an impactful special-teamer as well. If the Rams are too occupied with filling other needs during the early and middle rounds, Hill might be a very sensical option as the pickings get thinner.
