Notes:
Captured First-Team honors in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in 2007 and 2008...Set the school record for TFLs in a career with 44.5...Posted a career-high 59 tackles, with 15.5 TFLs and 7.5 sacks in 2008...Tremendous heart and character...ran into a burning house in 2007 to save a man...On the field, he possesses amazing size and stature...Long arms along with his strength and power make him the premier small school prospect in this draft...Surprisingly quick and uses all of his tools to punch through the pocket...While very productive in college, Hill did not face top tier competition...He might be solid against the run, but as a pass rusher he needs to improve.
