The 2020 NFL Draft is wrapping up its seventh and final round on Saturday evening, and Ohio State wide receiver KJ Hill finally heard his name called after falling farther than expected.

The former Buckeyes star will join one of the AFC's most talented offenses in the Los Angeles Chargers, who used the No. 220 overall pick on him. In terms of value, this was an absolute steal because we seriously have no idea how Hill was still available.

Prepare the mind for this insane stat, folks. Hill was ranked as the No. 73 prospect on Pro Football Focus' big board. To think that he fell beyond the top-200 is nothing short of ridiculous.

Hill might not blow you away with his speed, but his route running and hands are among the best in the 2020 class. He set an Ohio State record with 201 career receptions across his four years in Columbus. Think about the number of stud receivers that have passed through the Buckeyes program over the years? Standing alone in the OSU record books is no small feat.

The 22-year-old also finished sixth in Buckeyes history with 2,332 receiving yards and became the first Ohio State WR to log three seasons with 50-or-more receptions. Tell us again: how did Hill fall this far!?

Kudos to the Chargers for putting a firm end to this mystifying narrative.
