Future Watch: Justice Hill Rookie Football Cards, Ravens – Justice Hill was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens with the 113th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Tulsa, Oklahoma native starred at Booker T. Washington High School where he was an All-State player and he could have gone to 3-4 other schools but chose to stay close to home at Oklahoma State.
The 5-10 running back started his “true” freshman season as a backup and still carried the ball 206 times for 1,142 yards and six touchdowns. He was a Freshman All-American and he was named Big 12 Newcomer of the Year as well. What a start to his career.
The next year he had 268 carries for 1,467 yards and 15 touchdowns. He added one receiving touchdown too.
In 2018, he had 158 carries for 930 yards and nine touchdowns. His rushing average was 5.9 yards per carry. He missed a few games with a rib injury. After the season he sat out a Bowl Game and announced he would forego a final college season to enter the NFL Draft.
At the combine, the 200-pounder ran a 4.4, 40-yard dash and added 21 bench presses. Scouts already knew about his speed and open-field running. And yet he still didn’t get taken until the fourth round.
Here’s a look at him breaking tackles and showing off some great running:
