Exhibits above-average fluidity in the deep half when asked to turn and run. Gets up to speed quickly, showcases above-average range for the position and athletically can play in the deep half. However, lacks ideal instincts when asked to read his pass keys and rarely gets early jumps on the football. Is slow to get out of his breaks, rarely is able to anticipate routes and overall gives up a lot of plays because he's slow to read the quarterback's eyes and get an early break on the football.
Is a very average tackler. Doesn't consistently take proper angles when asked to run downhill, doesn't look comfortable inside the box and isn't a guy who I would consistently trust to make a play in the alley. Does generate a ton of snap through his hips and is more of a drag down guy. Exhibits above-average range and length when asked to break down as an open field guy. But again is more of a drag down tackler only and isn't going to force many turnovers.
Impression: Is a solid size/speed athlete for the position, but isn't real natural when asked to sit into his drop and lacks ideal instincts in center field. His athletic ability should get him drafted, but isn't anything more than a reserve/special teams guy only in my view."
He possesses many of the physical traits scouts are looking for at safety, which could result in a top-100 selection. His inconsistencies in coverage and open-field tackling stand out as concerns and so, too, is the fact that Hill's struggles came despite being surrounded by other legitimate NFL athletes in the Gators' secondary. He's a classic boom-or-bust prospect.
Positives: Legitimate NFL-caliber athlete. Prototypical combination of size, speed and leaping ability. Good straight-line speed to beat the throw to the sideline. Shows a burst of acceleration to close on the ball. Flashes hard-hitting tackling. Likes to lower his shoulder and can provide a pop over the middle. Standout special teams player throughout his career, leading the entire team with 22 tackles on teams as a true freshman. Should post good workout numbers.
Negatives: Clearly talented, but has struggled with consistency throughout his career at Florida. A bit high in his backpedal; loses a step in transition as he turns to run. Too aggressive in run support and is vulnerable against play-action. Doesn't locate the football quick enough. Takes poor angles to the ball and isn't as physical in jump ball situations as his size and athleticism would lead you to believe. Likes to go for the big hit and has a tendency to duck his head and lead with his shoulder, resulting in some ugly missed tackles. Was suspended for the first two games of the 2010 season for an undisclosed violation of team rules. Cited his three children as a primary reason why he left Florida early."
Positive: Imposing safety who flashes skill yet shows a lot of inconsistency on the field. Can be an intimidating force over the middle and is aggressive and explosive at the point. Lays his shoulders into ball carriers and is a hard hitter. Fast up the field and has recovery speed.
Negative: Does not always take proper angles to the action. Lacks a quick and fluid backpedal. Late getting to the sidelines in coverage. Slow to react. Has character concerns.
Analysis: Hill is a physical specimen yet has shown limited consistency and ball skills on the field. He could be a good fit as a strong safety, but he really must improve his coverage skills to have any chance of being a productive player in the NFL."
Negatives: Raised concerns about some poor off-the-field choices via his Twitter account, but later claimed his account was hacked, still, some NFL personnel may be concerned about the content of his account and his character... Work ethic has been questioned in the past, needs to prove he's willing to play every down with his best intensity... Instincts and recognition skills are somewhat lacking, looks a little lost at times... Posted just average stats for a safety in three years at Florida (144 tackles and four interceptions, one forced fumble)... Character and work ethic concerns raise a lot of question marks that may limit his stock."
