T.Y. Hilton, WR, Florida International

T.Y. Hilton, out of Florida International, is an undersized burner that could climb into the middle rounds. Hilton is a home-run hitter with shifty quickness and enough burst to carry him into the end zone. He's able to take bubble screens and other short passes and make the most of them.

Given his size, it is tough to connect with him downfield on big throws. Think of Hilton as a player like Ted Ginn, Jr. His impact as a receiver is limited, but he can be a difference maker on kick and punt returns. Injuries are going to be a concern given Hilton's slight frame.

Hilton in open space can be dangerous, but NFL offenses will need to create plays specifically for him in mind. He does well to catch the ball away from his body. His route running isn't crisp, but that can come in time.

He isn't strong enough against press coverage, but given his multiple gears of speed, he can use his agility to get around defenders rather than taking them on straight on. Given that he can also contribute as a returner, Hilton has tremendous draft value and should come off the board late in the third round.
