Brian Hill NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’1 219lbs
- Good lateral movement
- Nice size
- Decent burst through running lanes
- Keeps legs moving through contact
Analysis: Brian Hill rushed for a school-record 1,860 yards this season and finishes his career as the Cowboys’ all-time leader with 4,287 rushing yards. Hill also rushed for a school-record 22 touchdowns this season and set the career mark of 35 scores. Hill does his best work between the tackles where he always fights for extra yards. His lateral wiggle also helps in pick through traffic and avoid tacklers in tight spaces. Hill can do some damage on the edges but isn’t someone who’ll consistently outpace defensive angles.
- Lacks break away speed
- Play strength needs improvement
- Can run East/West instead of North/South
Analysis: Brian Hill won’t outrun many defenders at the next level, doing most of his work in between the tackles. He could use some more time in the weight room to add strength to his frame. He could have trouble breaking tackles consistently at the next level. On tape, when a hole wasn’t open immediately he had a tendency to try to stretch runs to the outside, many times getting caught in the backfield by a penetrating defender. Need to work more North/South.
NFL Comparison: Poor man’s David Johnson
