Once Hill posted the fastest 40-yard dash (4.4) among running backs February at the NFL Combine, the word on his speed was out. But the former Oklahoma State back is showing that even in tight spaces, he can make positive yards.
“Everybody’s a little bit faster; it’s a transition from college to here,” Hill said. “So I have to be a little bit faster, too. At the end of the day, it’s still football. I really don’t approach it any differently.”
However, Hill was excited to score his first NFL touchdown, even during a preseason game.
“It was great feeling,” Hill said. “Playing running back, you’ve got to be able to break some tackles, and I was able to do that.”
