Giants S Will Hill trying to make up for lost time
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - When Will Hill left New Jersey's high school ranks and landed at the University of Florida, there wasn't much doubt that he would soon play in the NFL.
He was the top-rated player in the Garden State in 2007 and ranked among the nation's top defensive backs. He had everything: size, speed, athletic ability and instincts.
Stardom was going to be his ... until it all went to his head. He stopped working, lived off his laurels and made mistakes. He declared for the NFL draft after his junior season. But his reputation dipped so low, there were no takers.
Out of football for a year, though, Hill has turned things around. And he might be the biggest surprise at training camp of the New York Giants.
