Cowboys’ Potential Draft Pick: Jordan Hill, DT, Penn State
My latest scouting report is on Penn State defensive tackle Jordan Hill.
Hill is a short (6-1) defensive tackle with limited explosiveness. It obviously doesn’t really matter how high or far a defensive lineman can jump in games, but his 22.5-inch vertical and 8-7 broad jump show that Hill is by no means an elite athlete.
On tape, Hill does a nice job of utilizing his tools. He fires off of the ball and typically maintains good leverage. He’s not very strong for his size, but he uses that strength well to drive interior linemen into the backfield at times. There’s a reason he was able to make so many tackles in the backfield.
