Royce Hill
Position: CB
Class:  Sr
School: North Texas
HT: 5'10"
WT: 181 lbs.
40 Time: 4.53
Conference: Sun Belt
Biography: Four-year starter who posted 46 tackles/2 interceptions/13 pass breakups as a senior after putting up 39/1/6 the prior year.

Positives: Well-sized cornerback with solid ball skills. Effectively diagnoses the action, picks up assignments and positions himself against receivers to defend the throw. Quick transitioning off the line to run with opponents, shows the ability to stay on the receiver?s hip out of breaks and remains aware throughout the action. Wraps up when tackling.

Negatives: Lacks great hands. Just an average burst to the ball out of his plant. Average top-end speed.

Analysis: Hill was a solid cornerback in the Sun Belt and has enough skills to be used as a dime back at the next level in a system that allows him to face the action.

Projection: FA
