As we wrote about yesterday, Hill has been a standout all week at Senior Bowl practices, where he's consistently beat defensive backs in one-on-one situations with his route running and has caught just about everything that's come his way. He continued to make highlight-reel plays during his final practice of the week on Thursday, including a spectacular one-handed catch and a double move to burn former Michigan safety Josh Metellus.

KJ Hill just snagged a beautiful one-handed catch reaching back behind him in stride— Luke Inman (@Luke_SpinmanNFL) January 23, 2020
Earlier he broke ankles on this double move in the end zone.. Great week for the Ohio State Buckeye pic.twitter.com/BBapULh1Pu
Hamilton also impressed onlookers all week with his power and quickness, including one repetition in one-on-ones on Thursday in which he absolutely manhandled Washington center Nick Harris.

Pure power and drive from Hamilton. And theres nothing Harris can do about it. pic.twitter.com/R4SZynhz8h
Needless to say, it's been a great week for both Hill and Hamilton and their draft stocks, as both of them appear to have now solidified themselves as at least middle-round selections in April's NFL draft.
