2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Darius Hill, TE, Ball State

Hill began his playing career in 2005 when he started three of eleven games and recorded 11 receptions for 136 yards (12.4 average) and 3 TD. In 2006, Hill started seven of twelve games. He caught 42 passes for 741 yards (17.6) and 10 TD. That season's numbers pale in comparison to what he was able to post during his Junior campaign. In 2007, Hill caught 65 passes for 926 yards (14.2) with 11 TD, while starting twelve of thirteen games for Ball State. His play earned him First Team All MAC honors. Hill is a big target with a slender frame. His long arms allow him to tangle defenders inside. But he is not a physical blocker and was pushed around sometimes. Hill is fast (4.81) and athletic, moving fluidly out of his stance. However, his route running is rudimentary, he needs to add weight and strength and his numbers are inflated by playing on a pass happy offensive system. Luckily, his level of competition is not a huge concern at this time. Hill is a very athletic TE with good speed. He does need to add bulk and become a better blocker, but all attributes are there for a good NFL career. He looks to be good late second day prospect, but could move up with a good season.
