Elusiveness – Hill shows flashes of Reggie Bush and Lesean McCoy with his elusiveness. He has the ability to make a defender miss in the open field which translates to big play ability. All Justice Hill needs is a hole and some space to do serious damage.
Ball Carrier Vision/Patience – In his three years at Oklahoma State, Hill averaged 5.6 YPC and a lot of that came from his vision and patience. His ability to find the open field is a plus and will be beneficial to fantasy owners in his NFL career.
Strength – For a speed back, Hill shows great power for his size. He pushed out 21 bench press reps at the combine. In his game film, Hill doesn’t go down easy when he is faced with a weak tackle.
Acceleration and Speed – Justice Hill has tremendous speed and acceleration which is what he is best at. Hill had the fastest combine time at 4.40 and that will help his draft stock. Hill has great acceleration and combined with his ball carrier vision, there can be some serious fantasy points in the future.
Power – Although he has strength and doesn’t go down easy, Hill is not your ideal in between the tackles runner. He is a smaller back and short yardage carries may be his Achilles’ heel.
Hands – Hill did not get a lot of receiving action during his 3 years at Oklahoma State and it may limit his touches per game and his PPR fantasy rank. He only managed around 1.4 rec/game and 8.4 rec yds/game at Oklahoma State.
Like all draft prospects, it depends on what team the player gets drafted to. Justice Hill has the capability to be the new Reggie Bush/Lesean McCoy and all he needs is that starting job and an o-line. Hill looks to be a sneaky keeper pick and a great dynasty pick. I wouldn’t take him too early but I would hate to miss out on a great player.
