B.J. Hill

6'3"311 lbs NC State




Prospect Profile: B.J. Hill

Mel Kiper breaks down why NC State's B.J. Hill can be a quality defensive tackle in the NFL.

Pre-Draft Analysis

Stout, powerful and active one-gap defensive tackle or 4-3 nose tackle who excels against the run and can occasionally force the QB off his spot as a straight-line power rusher. Hill grades out as a potential two-down NFL starter.

Post-Draft Analysis

The Giants already have one double-team eater in Snacks Harrison, and Hill can provide some immediate insurance on the interior of the defensive line. Don't bother to run inside if you see those two on the field at the same time. -- Chris Sprow

Giants rookie B.J. Hill quietly dominating from within the shadows

The Giants’ third-round selection in the 2018 NFL Draft out of NC State, Hill has quietly dominated from the moment he put on the blue, and that has carried over into training camp where he’s now earning first-team reps alongside Damon Harrison.

“B.J. came from a great program. He’s done a great job in college. They had four guys get drafted in the NFL — in the first four rounds, I believe. He was prepared when he came in. So, he just continued to grow when he got here,” defensive line coach Gary Emanuel told reporters on Wednesday. “He’s a good football player, number one. He can hold the point, he can strike, he can separate. He can get off blocks, he can rush the passer. He does everything that you’re looking for in a defensive lineman.”

Hill not only does everything a team looks for in a defensive lineman, he seems to excel in every area — something that has caught the attention of Snacks.

“B.J., he’s an interesting character, man. I don’t know if you guys have been watching, but he’s probably the most athletic defensive lineman that we have, and that says a lot,” Harrison said on Wednesday. “He can do a little bit of everything, which is encouraging to see, so I’m excited to get a chance to go out there preseason game one and beyond it and actually see what he can do during gameday.”

Harrison admits he wasn’t quite aware of who Hill was when the Giants drafted him No. 69 overall because he was overshadowed by teammates Bradley Chubb and Kentavius Street, but there’s no mistaking him now.

“I just knew about the other two guys that they had on the defensive line in college. Obviously, what’s his name, [Bradley] Chubb, and the guy who got hurt here, right? I knew about those two, so I was expecting more of a bigger type of guy, but he was the total opposite of a big guy who can move. Kid can run,” Harrison added. “I know you all have seen it, you’re all watching it.”
