- Penn State defensive tackle and NFL hopeful Jordan Hill left Indianapolis with some unfinished business. The NFL Scouting Combine interview process went well, the skill drills were fine and most of the results were where he anticipated he'd be. His 5.23 second 40-yard dash was the one event he wasn't pleased with, though Hill said his time in the 10-yard dash pleased scouts. For defensive tackles the 10-yard dash is a better measurement of the type of position work they do, which is why Hill won't run the 40-yard dash again at Penn State's pro day on Monday.
Hill plans to participate in only the position drills at Monday's event, just as a way of showing teams one last glimpse of his play. Hill had a formal interview with the St. Louis Rams at the combine and said he was slowed during his combine workout because of swelling in his left knee. "I'm still not at 100 percent or anything like that," Hill said. "But through the interview process I got a lot of good feedback. Just going through the defensive line drills a lot of people were surprised with how well I could actually move." - Audrey Snyder, Penn Live
