Junior running back P.J. Hill was released from jail Monday after being arrested over the weekend for a slew of alcohol and driving related charges, including drunk driving, reckless driving, driving without headlights, reckless endangerment and fleeing police.
Hill surprised many with his decision to leave school after his junior season, but had been wildly successful with the Badgers, rushing for nearly 4,000 yards and 42 touchdowns to rank behind only Ron Dayne and Anthony Davis as Wisconsin's most productive running backs.
Prior to the arrest, Hill had been quietly moving up draft boards after an impressive showing at his Pro Day. Hill's lack of agility and straight-line speed would have kept him in the middle to later rounds, but teams had interest.
Like fellow Big Ten standout Alex Boone of Ohio State, however, Hill's alcohol-related arrest is coming at the worst possible time and could lead to a tumble right out of the draft.
