He doesn’t have ideal size for a defensive tackle but is quick enough to get a jump on guards and win one-on-one situations. His speed could also translate to rushing off the edge. It will be interesting to see where they end up using him more, but for now, he will give them depth along the line and he should project as a sub package insert for this season. Coming out of Penn State, many scouts questioned his lower body strength as a weakness. If he can add power and weight, he might turn into a formidable tackle with better than average pass rushing capability. 2013 NFL Draft Profiles: Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3   The post Seattle Seahawks Select DT Jordan Hill In The 2013 N...
