The Bengals picked up their third offensive lineman of this weekend's draft when they opted for Georgia center-guard Trey Hill in Saturday's sixth round.
The 6-3, 319-pound Hill, a junior, started between right guard and center during his career. After last season's eighth game he had season-ending knee surgery, but was back in time for his pro day. He's known as a mauler that can play the three inside positions.
"Hill's size and ability to play multiple spots give him a head start on winning a roster spot," says NFL.com draft analyst Lance Zierlein.
According to Pro Football Focus, Hill allowed just three sacks in more than 1,700 career snaps.
"Which ever position Coach wants to put me in, I'll play," Hill said in his media Zoom. "(The Bengals) are getting a smart, physical guy that's going to get us in the right call."
