NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah tweeted most of the teams he talks to prefer LSU RB Jeremy Hill over Ohio State's Carlos Hyde.
We are extremely surprised to hear this, as Hyde has consistently been mentioned as the top running back. Hill does have a higher tackle breaking percentage, but both runners excel at picking up yards after contact. Hyde did take a large step forward this year. Apr 10 - 1:09 PM

LSU RB Jeremy Hill visited the Bills this week.

Hill is an upright runner who breaks tackles once picking up speed. Teams will have questions about his checkered past off the field, but it is difficult to know how much that will impact his evaluation. He should, at best, be a third-round pick.

LSU RB Jeremy Hill had his probation lifted by a judge Wednesday.

Hill was placed on two-years probation for sucker punching a man in a parking lot outside of a Baton Rouge bar. The 6-foot-2, 235-pound Hill has been on probation in the past for a sexual incident when he was in high school. Hill sent a letter to all 32 NFL teams in advance of the NFL Scouting Combine in which he discussed both arrests and included character references. One hopes Hill has cleaned up his act, as he's talented enough to carve out a long pro career.

LSU RB Jeremy Hill possesses "deceptive quickness and agility for a 230-pound back," according to NFL Films' Greg Cosell.

Having declared for the draft after his redshirt sophomore season, Hill is one of the draft's youngest RBs. "I thought he was excellent at getting through small cracks at the point of attack, and that is an absolutely necessary trait in the NFL," Cosell said. The analyst also likes that Hill mostly ran out of NFL formations with the Tigers. The 6-foot-2, 235-pound Hill has garnered comparisons to LaGarrette Blount.

LSU RB Jeremy Hill weighed in at 6-foot-1 and 233 pounds at the NFL Combine.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport noted Hill "mailed a letter to 32 teams, being proactive and detailing his two arrests." Apparently the package includes pages of character references during his time at LSU. Hill also has 32 and 5/8 inch arms and 10 and 3/8 inch hands.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport stated that LSU RB Jeremy Hill mailed a letter to every NFL team detailing his two arrests.

"LSU RB Jeremy Hill mailed a letter to 32 teams, being proactive & detailing his 2 arrests. Package includes pages of character references," Rapoport tweeted. The punishing down-hill runner is definitely a high risk/reward type of player. An NFL GM will have to believe that Hill is ready to make a change for the better. Hill has the tools to be successful at the next level, but he'll have to keep his nose out of trouble, since he's on probation until July 2015.

LSU RB Jeremy Hill will be hurt on draft day by his troubled past, NFL.com's Mike Mayock believes.

Hill's criminal record includes two incidents and he won't get off probation until July, 2015. "I think he's going to look good at the combine," Mayock said. "He's got really good feet for his size. The bigger thing for this kid is being able to look teams in the eye and explain what he did and why he did it. ... He's certainly a risk/reward guy. ... If he was clean off the field, I'd say second round in a heartbeat. With a second-round offensive grade, he'd be fortunate to go in the third or the fourth." The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder has drawn comparisons to LaGarrette Blount.

Scouts will look into LSU RB Jeremy Hill's "character, maturity and stability," according to NFL.com's Nolan Nawrocki.

Hill's criminal record already includes two incidents and he won't get off probation until July, 2015. "Big, thickly built, athletic slasher with an overinflated sense of his abilities and character red flags, which could cause some teams to shy away," observed Nawrocki. NFL.com's Gil Brant ranked Hill as the No. 26 overall prospect in the class last month. The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder has drawn comparisons to LaGarrette Blount.

Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel believes that LSU RB Jeremy Hill runs like LaGarrette Blount.

Like Blount, Hill, an early entree into the draft, is a powerful downhill runner. NFL.com's Gil Brant ranked Hill as the No. 26 overall prospect in the class last month, ahead of Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey (36), Auburn's Tre Mason (43) and Ohio State's Carlos Hyde (44). Hill can break tackle beyond the line of scrimmage and has fairly good receiving ability for a huge back. That said, Dunne notes that teams will dig into his past, as Hill was once arrested for simple battery at a bar.

NFL.com's Gil Brant ranks LSU redshirt sophomore RB Jeremy Hill as the No. 26 overall prospect in the class.

No reason was given other than Hill's production this season. Brandt ranked Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey at No. 36, Auburn's Tre Mason at No. 43, and Ohio State's Carlos Hyde at No. 44. Hill can break tackle beyond the line of scrimmage and has fairly good receiving ability for a man his size.

LSU redshirt sophomore RB Jeremy Hill will declare for the 2014 NFL Draft.

All signs pointed to Hill staying, with many reporting he wanted to repay the trust Les Miles displayed during the offseason. An off-field altercation ultimately ended in the running back being suspended, but he was reinstated early in the season by the coach and the team. Hill is a big back who falls forward. There are weeks when he goes down on first contact, but others where he plows through defenders. He could be a second day selection.
Jan 13 - 10:39 AM

LSU redshirt sophomore RB Jeremy Hill wants to return to school in 2014 to "pay back" HC Les Miller for standing by him, according to beat writer Glenn Guilbeau.

Hill was suspended prior to the 2013 season for sucker punching a random person in a parking lot. He missed a small amount of on-field action, since Les Miles put Hill's suspension up to a team vote. Obviously the running back was reinstated by his peers by a clear margin. Teams likely have more off-field than on-field questions with Hill, so they could be impressed with this decision and sign of good faith.
Jan 8 - 10:17 AM

LSU beat writer Ross Dellenger cites a source who says redshirt sophomore RB Jeremy Hill is now leaning towards staying in school rather than declaring for the draft.

"Hill has not officially decided to return, but all signs point to the 6-foot-2, 235-pounder remaining in school, said the source, who was familiar with the decision but not authorized to speak on Hill’s behalf," Dellenger writes. We are a bit surprised by the news, since previous reports stated Hill was almost certainly jumping to the NFL. He only has two seasons of on-field action with the Tigers and would return as their top offensive weapon.
Jan 7 - 12:10 PM

LSU redshirt sophomore RB Jeremy Hill took 28 carries for 216 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 21-14 win over Iowa.

Hill ran with power and force all afternoon. It might not sound applicable after watching this game or his highlights, but our own Josh Norris does question Hill's consistency to beat first contact. There is no doubting that he falls forward, however. Expect him to earn third- to fourth-round buzz.
Jan 1 - 5:59 PM

LSU sophomore RB Jeremy Hill "will likely leave LSU for the NFL draft," according to beat writer to Jim Kleinpeter.

Hill is listed as a true sophomore by LSU, but he sat out the 2011 season after graduating from high school the previous spring. We, and others, have always considered Hill a two year player, so this is surprising news. He's a larger back with a smooth style, but we wish Hill would beat first contact more often.
