    "bear traps for hands" is the best descriptor all weekend.

    Did not realize he was still there. Ranked #5 at Walterfootball


    Must be the suspension for the lockerroom incident that dropped him.


    5. [​IMG] Kylin Hill, RB, Mississippi State

    4/26/21: Hill was phenomenal in the 2020 season opener, showing serious receiving ability to help lead an upset over LSU. On top of making some huge catches, Hill did well as a blocker. Following a suspension over a locker room incident, Hill decided to sit out the rest of the season and then enter the 2021 NFL Draft. Hill has a good skill set and could become a three-down starter in the NFL.

    8/29/20: In 2019, Hill averaged 5.7 yards per carry for 1,347 yards with 10 scores. He had 17 receptions for 174 yards and a touchdown too. Hill played well for the Bulldogs, showing power and quickness, but they struggled to help Hill find good running lanes in a number of games in 2019. He has starting potential for the NFL and could stand to improve his receiving ability for the next level. Working with new head coach Mike Leach could really improve Hill's pass-catching talent.

    Hill had a 5.80 from Zierlein, which is a solid backup grade.

    Jordan Reid of the draft network felt he has the potential of a #2 RB.

    PFF had him ranked right around 200.

    Basically everyone agrees on what he is— a hard charging one pace back with contact balance who can catch.

    Feels like a likely Jamaal replacement.

    Someone change the thread, wrong school.

    kylin is another guy I had pegged as no way being there at this spot. Love his style and what he brings as a compliment and sit and learn

    IMO way better prospect than Dexter Williams coming out. I was not a big fan of his college game. Danced way too much at the LOS.

    Kylin is gonna be a great 3rd down back option and I feel could be the Ervin role as well

    Hill is a player I never expected to be there in the 7th round. Packers got a huge steal. Good athlete, plays fast, shifty and most of all he is a really good pass catcher. Williams was the safest pass catcher at RB and it seems Hill is gonna take that role now. He is a perfect 3rd guy. I really like the RB room.
