Future Watch: Brian Hill Rookie Football Cards, Bengals – Brian Hill was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft. The talented running back played sparingly for the Falcons, was put on the practice squad and in November was signed by the Cincinnati Bengals.
Hill was a star at Wyoming gaining 4,287 yards on 775 attempts, that was good for 5.5 yards per carry in his three years there. His longest touchdown was 89 yards but also had scores of 72 and 66 as well. He did add 403 receiving yards and a second-team All-Mountain West team award and he was upgraded to the first team in 2016.
The Falcons drafted him because they knew down the road they would need this talent. But after one game his career with the Falcons was over and he was with Cincinnati. Hill finally saw the field in December for the Bengals and he did play in their final five games. He did gain 327 yards on the ground averaging 3.3 yards per carry. His two catches netted 36 yards. That was a decent way to finish out the season. He didn’t get into the end zone, but he did find out something. He had an injured hand all season!
After offseason surgery he vowed to be better now that he has two healthy hands coming into the 2018 season. At 6-1, 219 pounds he could be the surprise running back of next season.
Here’s a look at what this athlete can do:
Hill could have a breakout training camp. He will get a lot of playing time in preseason games and that’s where he can make a name for himself. Collectors still have time to collect him before he starts getting a lot of national attention.
