Overview

Hill has the frame, athleticism and ceiling for development to eventually become a quality starting safety. However, currently lacks overall consistency and awareness. Capable of playing the point, the deep half and coving tight ends and bigger receivers in man coverage. May struggle against savvy route-runners and shifty slots. Flashes the ability to be really productive against the run but doesn't appear to always play with enough aggressiveness in this area. Has good ball skills but needs to be more physical in 50-50 situations. His value in enhance by extensive special teams coverage experience. Hill's not there yet, but will still be a mid-round pick.


Strengths

Hill has ideal size and good speed. Very smooth athlete. Can close in a hurry. Very comfortable in deep cover-2 and capable of playing center field. Possesses good hands and takes good routes to the football. Flashes the ability to be very productive and physical in run support. Excels on special teams coverage units.

Weaknesses

Instincts and awareness still need work. Can be a tick late reacting to receivers in his zone or coming up in run support. Sucked in by play-action at times. Bit of a high-cut guy who may have trouble mirroring quicker slots. Needs to be more consistently physical against the run.

Grade

2.6
