Hill goes to Green Bay | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The Packers picked RB Kylin Hill in Round 7 of the 2021 NFL Draft. Hill broke out in 2019 with 242-1,350-10. But playing under new HC Mike Leach in 2020, the 22-year-old’s progress came to a halt. While he opened eyes with 23 catches (15 at Kentucky; 8 at LSU), Hill made only 3 appearances and totaled just 15 carries. He received a 1-game suspension before getting deactivated for 2 because of “personal issue,” per Leach. He promptly skipped the remainder of the season to prep for the draft. When right, Hill uses his 5’10, 214-pound frame effectively as an inside/outside runner. His 4.51-second 40 time shows good enough speed, while his 36-inch vertical (68th percentile) and 122-inch broad jump (72nd percentile) show the burst. Those traits -- plus clear pass-catching ability -- made Hill 1 of our favorite RB sleepers. Landing in Green Bay offers clear pass-catching upside in the wake of Jamaal Williams' departure. We'll see how he fares this summer. For now, Hill makes for a solid upside shot to take late in dynasty rookie drafts.
