Draft Scout News
08/29/14 - RB Jeremy Hill carried more than the ball in the preseason finale against Indianapolis, the rookie carried the entire offense. The second-round pick from LSU got 20 touches in the first half (the Colts offense only ran 23 total plays) and despite suffering an elbow injury late in the second quarter, Hill got six more carries and another reception in the second half.
"Jeremy has to understand what it's like to be an NFL running back," coach Marvin Lewis said. "If he's going to be the guy, then he's going to have to be able to shoulder the load."
Hill isn't going to be asked to be the guy, not with Giovani Bernard in the picture. But Bernard didn't play against the Colts, nor did injured halfbacks Rex Burkhead, Cedric Peerman and BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Hill continued to get touches until midway through the fourth quarter and finished with 20 carries for 90 yards and six catches for 70 yards.
08/17/14 - Rookie RB Jeremy Hill, the team's second-round pick, left Saturday night's game with a shoulder injury.
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Bengals' picks: Round 2/55 - Jeremy Hill, RB, 6-1, 233, Louisiana State...BenJarvus Green-Ellis isn't getting younger and Hill will provide the power running up the middle and explosive breakaway ability offensive coordinator Hue Jackson desires next to Giovani Bernard. - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - By selecting LSU running back Jeremy Hill in the second round of the draft the Bengals may have pushed veteran BenJarvus Green-Ellis out the door. Green-Ellis will be 29 when the season begins and averaged a career low 3.4 yards per carry last year. Hill comes in the same mold as Green-Ellis, who played last year as the bruiser to the speedy Giovani Bernard. Hill is 6-1 and 233 pounds. Is there enough room for Green-Ellis to stay in a suddenly crowded running backs room? "Right now there is," offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said. "Right now that's not my concern. My biggest thing is, again, whoever we put on this team, my job is to coach. So at the end of the day, we have some very competitive guys in our room, and I know nobody's going to shy away from anybody. And that's what you like. At the end of the day, we have to line up and we're going to play the best players. That's the name of this business. It's a very good room; it's a very close room. We're adding another player just like we did a year ago into the room, into the mix. We expect him to help our football team. How it unfolds, it will unfold." - The Sports Xchange
05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 70/4. *Jeremy Hill, RB, LSU, 6-1, 233, 4.59, 2-3...Hill is a big, slashing runner with good initial quickness, a decent second level burst then only average top speed. He rushed for 1,401 yards last year, second-most in school history as his 6.9 yards per carry set an SEC record. In 2012 he became the first true freshmen to lead LSU in rushing since Justin Vincent did it in 2003. Off-field issues include two arrests, one on sexual assault charges that he pled out to a misdemeanor and the other after a bar fight in August of last year. Frankly: Hill is almost as good as he thinks he is, but can help a power running offense if he decides to work at his trade and understand how to contribute as a team member. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
