Hill headed to Draft, could be No.1 RB draft prospect? | SECRant.com

Earlier today, LSU sophomore running back Jeremy Hill announced that he will be entering the 2014 NFL draft. Hill put together an outstanding sophomore season and according to Gil Brandt of NFL.com, he might be the best available running back come draft time in May.

Before Hill declared, I said there was a good chance a running back would not be picked in the first round for the second year in a row. I think Hill will be a first-round pick. At 6-2, 235 pounds, he is a big, strong running back who rushed for 1,401 yards, averaging almost seven yards per carry, and scored 16 touchdowns in his sophomore season. His last game of the season might have been his best, a 216-yard, two-touchdown performance against Iowa in the Outback Bowl.

Cam Cameron, the offensive coordinator at LSU this year, recently told me he believes Hill is one of the best running backs he's been around, from the standpoint of power, the ability to catch the ball, etc. When a guy like Cameron, who's been in the NFL as a head coach and offensive coordinator, speaks of a player that highly, you've got to take notice.
