Hill rushed for 930 yards and nine touchdowns on 158 carries and pulled down 68 receiving yards on 13 receptions during his junior season for the Cowboys. The undersized back (5-foot-10, 190 pounds) ranks seventh all time in OSU history in rushing yards with 3,539 yards.
The Booker T. Washington product from Tulsa caught the attention of NFL scouts at the NFL Scouting Combine in March in Indianapolis where he showcased his blazing top-end speed.
Among running backs, he had the fastest 40-yard dash times — 4.4 seconds. He also recorded the best vertical leap (40 inches) and broad jump (10 feet, 10 inches). On the 225-pound bench press, he finished with an above-average total of 21 reps.
Hill is the first Cowboy selected in this year’s draft. Defensive end Jordan Brailford is also expected to be drafted.
