Born: 11/9/1995 East St. Louis , IL

Draft 2017

Pick No.156

Selected By: Atlanta Falcons

Round: 5

Pick (Overall): 12 (156)

Pick Analysis: Growing up in a St. Louis suburb, Hill was pushed into football by his mother, who wanted him to have an after-school activity to stay out of trouble. She paid him five dollars for every touchdown or sack to keep him motivated. Now he's looking for NFL money after three successful seasons with the Cowboys. He started four games as a true freshman (796 yards, seven scores rushing; 13-204 receiving), becoming the fifth FBS player ever with 200 rushing yards and 100 receiving yards in the same game (Fresno State, 387 total yards). Hill was a second-team all-conference pick in 2015, finishing eighth in the FBS with 135.9 rushing yards a game (281-1,631, six TDs rushing; 20-132 receiving). The load became even higher in his junior, as he carried the ball 349 times for 1,860 yards (ranked third in the FBS) and 22 touchdowns (fourth) in 14 games on his way to first-team All-Mountain West honors.
