Kylin Hill (RB, Mississippi State) - Draft Profile

Ignore his rushing stats for 2020, he only featured in three games before he opted out and seemed to be involved in the passing game more than running the ball. 2019 he showed he was a very efficient running back for the Bulldogs averaging over 5.6 yards per attempt off 242 carries. He initially said he was going to enter the 2020 draft but at the last minute pulled out and after a pandemic off season opted out after three games.


Kylin Hill doesn't just have a great surname, but his tape is full of flashy highlights which make him fun to watch.

NFL Draft Projection - 5th or 6th Round


He ran a 4:51 in his 40 yard dash which isn't exactly top tier speed, although on tape he does appear quick and has that change of speed style that can be utilised in the right partnership at the next level. He's very useful in the receiving game, with an acceptable level of pass blocking ability, which leads me to think a few NFL teams will see him as a nice addition in a committee scenario.

Roll The Tape




He muscles his way through a tackle before making a big gain










Waits patiently for a hole to appear and bursts straight through it.




This clip shows his speed, a hole opens up and like a flash he runs straight through it, loses momentum towards the end of the run moving the ball to his other hand, but at least he protects it when contact does comes







Nice vision to bounce outside and use his speed to steal more yards










This is a great example of his pass catching ability. Keeps his concentration by catching the ball whilst under pressure, before making two players miss and going on for a big run







Splash Play Alert

Out in open space Hill is elusiveness enough to make big plays. His speed gets him in a good position here, before he fakes a step which does enough to beat the LSU DB for a touchdown
