Daxton Hill Draft Profile
One of Daxton Hill’s biggest strengths is his versatility. Hill can be used as either a nickel cornerback or a safety. He has incredible speed, as seen in his 4.38-second 40 time. Hill has an exceptional ability at anticipating route breaks and can see the routes develop all around the field. He’s also extremely talented in pursuit of the ball carrier.
For as explosive as he is athletically, he lacks some of the desired traits as a tackler. He often has a hard time coming off blocks and gets stuck too often. Hill also makes it a habit of being too conservative at times in run support. He also gets caught trying to do too much at times and needs to learn to simply stick to his role.
