NFL Draft 2012: Stephen Hill, Georgia Tech WR To Visit 49ers

Stephen Hill, a wide receiver prospect out of Georgia Tech, will visit the San Francisco 49ers this weekend according to Matt Barrows from the Sacramento Bee.

The planned visit, may be the first of many for Hill if several mock drafts end up being correct. In SB Nation's bloggers mock draft, Niners Nation picked Stephen Hill at No. 30 overall for the 49ers in the first round.

Hill hauled in five touchdowns and accumulated 820 receiving yards in his junior season at Georgia Tech. The Georgia-native surprised some fans when he decided to forgo his senior season and declare for the NFL draft back in January.

In initial draft evaluations, NFL scouts and executives did not believe Hill to be drafted within the first three rounds. However, due to an impressive showing at the NFL combine, Hill is not only considered to be a first round pick, but was chosen as one of the 26 players to attend the draft at Radio City Music Hall in New York on April 26th.
