Derrick Hill
Position: DT
Class:  5Sr
School: California
Conference: Pac-10
HT: 6-1.5
WT: 306
40 Time: 5.24
Biography: Three-year starter used at both tackle and on the nose in college. Totaled 44 tackles as a senior and 18/4.5/to the prior year.

Negatives: Lacks playing balance and controlled by a single blocker. Must develop more moves with his hands. More of a straight-line defender who cannot make plays down the line.

Analysis: Hill is a space-eating defensive lineman who effectively occupies blockers and allows teammates to make plays on the ball. He does not possess a lot of upside for the next level but has enough skill to find a home as a backup in a variety of defensive schemes.

Projection: FA
