....Jordan Hill, defensive tackle, Penn State.  Hold your Sandusky jokes. This guy looks like Brandon Mebane, and plays like him, too - Hill stands at 6'1", weighs 303 pounds, has 33 1/2-inch arms, and is only 22 years old.  Talk about upside? This guy has it. Taken from the Penn State Athletics' website:  Jordan Hill has a non-stop motor and has set a sterling example for his teammates on the time and dedicated efforts required to maximize ability and potential. The senior is consistent and passionate in his quest to improve and help the Penn State defense remain among the nation's elite units. Hill's motor never stops, not in the weight room, at practice, during off-season conditioning or in games. The former Steelton-Highspire High School All-American has emerged as a leader for the defense and is a probable post-season honors candidate. He started every game last season and has 17 career starts, most among players on the defense. Hill's addition addresses one of the only "needs" the Seahawks have left - depth at the interior defensive line. With Alan Branch and Jason Jones departing in free agency, DT Tony McDaniel was a decent signing from the Dolphins, but the line needed more depth. Hill brings that, and shoud fill in nicely as a reserve alongside Jaye Howard. (Remember him?)
