2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Ronnie Hillman, RB, San Diego State

San Diego State running back Ronnie Hillman was a highly-touted recruit who had two very good seasons with the Aztecs. Started 8 games in 2010 and rushed for over 1,500 yards and played all 13 games for SDSU last season and compiled 1,711 yards and 19 touchdowns. Hillman is thick up top and thin through his base. He is an elusive runner that doesn't get many yards after contact.

Hillman has fantastic agility in tight spaces. He can move side to side and cut in and out of his breaks. He ran a 4.45 40 yard dash at the combine and showed good explosion with a 37-inch vertical.

There are some durability concerns. He never missed a ton of time, but gets banged up often. Shows a solid patience to let blocks develop. He can do a better job of taking what each play gives him rather than trying to dance in the hole.

Not a natural pass catcher (which would be helpful given his ability in open spaces). Blocks relatively well and chip blocks consistently when running a route from the backfield.

Hillman isn't a third down back, but he could develop into one over time. For now, he's an undersized first and second down back who can be brought in as a change of pace and spell a team's No. 1 RB.
