Strengths

Very intelligent and instinctive. Excellent play recognition. Very good feet and hips to turn and run. Plus change-of-direction skills overall. Great competitiveness at the catch point. Has the confidence to challenge anyone in press coverage. Effective using hands around the line of scrimmage. Quality technique in man coverage. Often unchallenged in coverage for long stretches. Good awareness in zone coverage. Exceptional ball skills. Surprising strength for his size. Tremendous run defender. Strong and aggressive tackler. Quick to come up and make a play. Works to get off blocks. Mostly played on the left side but has plenty of experience at all three cornerback spots. Three-year starter and four-year contributor. Played well versus top competition.

 

Weaknesses

Lacks prototype size and length for the perimeter. Doesn’t possess top-end speed or athleticism. Stays close but receivers get behind him too often. Sometimes out of position against crosses/drags.

Conclusion

Overall, Hill is an instinctive cornerback with underrated play strength and the natural cover skills to remain on the outside at his size or go into the slot when needed. In a draft class that could potentially have upwards of 15+ prospects at the position selected in the first three rounds, Hill may be getting overlooked.
