Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Considering his size he's decent in run support, a physical hitter who could also get a look at safety
  • Has quick feet and excellent change-of-direction ability, capable of mirroring quickness underneath.
  • Plays with high energy and is a tough-minded overachiever.
  • Has a powerful punch at the line of scrimmage and can deliver it while moving his feet. Hill also has the powerful core and hips to stick to a receiver downfield and escort him to the sideline
  • Hill tracks the ball well and does a nice job of getting his head around in plenty of time to avoid flags.
  • Shows good instincts when facing the action in zone coverage, and Hill has solid ball skills.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Has poor recognition skills when facing the action in zone coverage.
  • Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.
  • Hill might have to add some weight at the next level in order to become more physical.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
