BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his junior season. Senior totals included 59/15.5/7.5 after 52/14 on/1.5 as a junior.

POSITIVES: "Large, athletic defensive lineman swiftly moving up draft boards. Moves well on his feet, quickly changes direction, and strings plays out to the flanks. Jolts blockers with good hand punch, breaks down well, and easily redirects to the action. Fights throughout the play, flashes power, and works to get involved in the action."

NEGATIVES: Gets a little tall and allows blockers to get leverage on him. Does not display great first step quickness. Does not show dominant lower-body strength.

ANALYSIS: "Hill is an athletic prospect with the ability to play in several NFL defensive systems. He has the movement skills to be used as a potential three-technique lineman, or he can be placed on the nose if he improves his lower body strength. He offers a large degree of upside potential, and he could end up as a top-100 choice in April, but he will need time to develop his game."

PROJECTION: Third Round
