Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Good body thickness throughout with the speed to get upfield quickly and penetrate. He has NFL movement skills with a flexible body type to bend and make sharp cuts, playing with a high motor and emotion whenever he steps on the football field.

Hamilton also has the bloodlines that NFL evaluators seek as the son of Keith "Hammer" Hamilton, who was a defensive lineman and 12-year veteran with the New York Giants (1992-2003).

WEAKNESSES: At 265 pounds, Hamilton doesn't have the size of most interior defensive linemen.

Still developing and unpolished in several areas.

The younger Hamilton flashes a lot of next level potential and has taken on a leadership role in 2014 as the most experienced member of the Scarlet Knights defense.

--Dane Brugler (8/4/14)

Player Overview

One of the highest ranked high school recruits to attend Rutgers, Hamilton was a five-star player out of Don Bosco Prep and despite offers from just about every top program in the country, decided to stay in state and chose the Scarlet Knights.

Hamilton played mostly a reserve role as a true freshman before becoming a full-time starter as a sophomore last year (12 starts), seeing most of his snaps inside at defensive tackle. He was mostly a two-down player and was the only Rutgers' player to record double-digit tackles for loss (11.5) in 2014, adding 48 tackles, 4.5 sacks and three pass break-ups (all career-highs).
