49ers Absent From Stephen Hill Pro Day

The month of March brings with it not only free agency, but also college pro days around the country. Teams set up opportunities for all of their draft prospects to work out for NFL scouts and try to wow them one last time before the April draft. High profile players are the ones to look out for at a Pro Day, but players can come in under the radar and through a strong workout convince a team to grab them. A good story is how Dwight Clark was meant to just help work out a quarterback at Clemson and ended up doing enough for Bill Walsh to draft him.

Scouts will attend a Pro Day workout, but it remains to be seen how much an appearance or absence can mean. Matt Barrows posted today that the 49ers were the only team to not have a person present at Georgia Tech's Pro Day earlier today. That is of note primarily because wide receiver Stephen Hill was the player to watch today. Hill made a name for himself at the NFL Combine with a strong 40 and some great work in the receiver drills. Hill did not run the 40 today, but he did run routes and catch passes.

My guess is this doesn't mean anything, but it is always there for speculation. The 49ers might know they want him but want to psych out other teams. Or they know he is not a guy they want to draft, so why waste the resources. It is all up to us to speculate. In the meantime, here is some video of an interview and brief highlights of Hill's day.
