The Denver Broncos have not waited to try and improve the roster that took them to the AFC Divisional Round in 2011.

After signing guard C.J Davis today, the Broncos added a a player to a group with many questions around it.

The Broncos added Wednesday free agent receiver Jason Hill. Hill played in Jacksonville last year after being released late in November, after new Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio was fired.

Hill is a 6'1, 190 pound receiver who was drafted by San Francisco in the third round of the 2007 entry draft. In the 2007 combine he ran the second fastest 40 time running a 4.32. His rookie season he only played in five games due to injury problems.

Hill played at Washington State University. He scored 32 touchdowns breaking the school record and is second on the Pac-10 All Time list. He had 2,704 yards and 148 catches.

Hill is a big addition for the fact that the Broncos receiving group is thin due to Eddie Royal being an unrestricted free-agent.

Scouting Report (From SB Nation

Assets: Has elite athleticism and top-end speed, the needed ingredients of a pure deep-play threat. Is also very shifty. Runs routes well and can really take off if the defender misses his tackle.

Flaws: Has a history of inconsistency and doesn't always seem to be in-sync with his quarterback. Not a physical receiver and won't make the tough catch in heavy traffic.

Career Potential -- Speedy Receiver with great upside.

Also according to Rotoworld, Hill was released by the Jaguars due to problems with dropped passes and not being able to get open down the field.
