Stock Up: Jordan Hill

Jordan Hill may not be a household name in Seattle quite yet, but he had a very strong game for the Hawks in Green Bay. The Penn St. alum made plays all over the field in the run game, and applied some pressure on Aaron Rodgers.

For a 303 lb. man, Hill has incredible athleticism for his size. His quickness allows him to penetrate into the opponents’ backfield with ease. He tore it up late last season, registering 5.5 sacks over the final 6 weeks before getting injured and missing the playoffs.

The 24-year-old is coming into his own, and should see plenty of snaps as a situational pass rusher the rest of the season. Hill has big potential, and I hope we get a chance to see what he can do as an every down lineman in the near future.
