Scouting Report

OVERVIEW

A three-star recruit from Tulsa, Okla., Hill led the nation's freshmen in rushing in 2016, racking up 1,142 yards and six touchdowns on 206 carries (5.5 average). He bettered those figures as a sophomore, reaching 1,467 yards and 15 scores on 268 carries (5.5 average) while adding 31 catches for 190 yards and a TD. Production dipped as a junior due to a rib injury and fewer carries, but he still managed 930 yards and nine scores on 158 totes (5.9 average).

ANALYSISWhat Hill lacks in size (5-foot-10, 198 pounds), he makes up for with pure energy. He runs with a relentless want-to, using burst and shiftiness to get through running lanes and embarrass would-be tacklers, and churning his legs to finish runs. With a low center of gravity and active feet, he uses quick cuts and spins to maximize yardage.

Scouts will have to rationalize Hill's timed speed (4.4-second 40-yard dash, fastest among RBs at the NFL Scouting Combine) and his play speed, as he didn't appear to have the extra gear to break long runs. He lacks much of a power element, and his turbocharged style can border on frenetic, with wasted motion in jukes that don't elude anyone. His size is an issue in protection, limiting his third-down usage.
