Grade and Reactions for the K.J. Hill pick

The Chargers finished the 2020 NFL Draft with one of their best picks of the entire weekend when they selected Ohio state wide receiver K.J. Hill in the seventh round. Hill comes to the Chargers after becoming the Buckeyes’ all-time leader in career receptions. He was a two-time Honorable Mention All-Big Ten selection over his final two seasons and led the team in receptions as a senior with 57.

The Chargers needed help at wide receiver to complement Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. After selecting Virginia’s Joe Reed in the fifth round who is seen as more of a offensive “utility” player, the Bolts still needed a pure receiver.
