Seahawks selected Penn State DT Jordan Hill with the No. 87 overall pick.
Hill was a consensus first-team All-Big Ten pick as a senior, registering 64 tackles -- 8.5 for a loss -- and 4.5 sacks despite playing through a knee injury. He had the knee scoped after the season. Hill recovered by the Combine and ran 5.23 with a 1.75 ten-yard split. Not blessed with star athleticism or size, Hill atones with a relentless style and all-around game. After the Seahawks lost Jason Jones to free agency, Hill could be counted on to contribute as a pass rushing threat from the inside. Fri, Apr 26, 2013 09:58:00 PM

Penn State senior DT Jordan Hill underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee two weeks ago, but is already running as part of his rehab.

Hill has not graduated yet and isn't on track to do so until the spring, but he does plan on attending January's Senior Bowl. We prefer his running mate from last season, Devon Still, but Hill offers some nice strength to shed and some burst to make plays in the backfield.

Penn State DT Jordan Hill has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

Hill finished the season on a tear, specifically against Wisconsin. He did appear to suffer a major knee injury, but Hill was able to play immediately and his availability for a postseason all star means he will be healthy for the pre-draft process.

Penn State senior DT Jordan Hill registered three tackles for loss, including two sacks, Saturday against Wisconsin.

This was Hill's best game of the season despite suffering from a nagging knee injury. The senior was able to make a home in the backfield, splitting gaps at the line of scrimmage or shedding quickly to wreak havoc. Hill will have to show more of that during a postseason all star game to make evaluators feel comfortable using a mid-round pick on him.

Despite suffering what looked to be a major injury, Penn State senior DT Jordan Hill is listed as "probable" for this weekend's game against Nebraska.

Hill was carted off the sideline with a right knee injury after it was bent backwards on the field. Needless to say we are surprised and relieved the injury wasn't more severe. Expect the senior to suit up and carry his third day evaluation against Nebraska.

Penn State senior DT Jordan Hill was carted off the sideline with a right knee injury.

Hill's knee was apparently bent backwards and he needed plenty of help to leave the field. We don't consider him as good of a prospect as Devon Still, but Hill does have NFL caliber talent. The team has called it a sprained knee, and we hope it is nothing more serious.

Senior DT Jordan Hill is not entertaining the thought of transferring and will stay at Penn State, according to ESPN's Jared Shanker.

"I haven't picked up the phone if I don't know the number," said the senior Nittany Lion. Hill is a legitimate NFL prospect and should remain in the top-ten seniors at his position. Despite being listed under 300 pounds, Hill generates production due to his non-stop motor and strong anchor thanks to a low center of gravity. He finished last season with eight tackles for loss including 3.5 sacks and will look to build on those numbers during his final season.
