I don't know how Georgia Tech gets these freaks at Wide receiver.
Johnson, Thomas and Hill are all high potential, big receivers who had horrible Quarterbacks on their team.
Thomas IMO, has the potential to be #2 best receiver out of the 2010 receiver class, behind Bryant, if he can also work on route running and playing in a slightly more passing offense, with Tebow there anyways.
I could see teams like Miami, who are bare at receiver, other than Marshall, take a shot at him at pick 41. With Philbin there, he wants a more stretch the field offense. Getting a guy like Hill at 6'4, 215 with some outrageous athletic ability might be worth the risk so early in the draft, even though he is raw as a receiver.
A nice little bonus with Hill, is that IIRC he is a good blocker on the outside. Paul Johnson wanted his receiver to be able to hold a block versus the corners due to their offense.
