Report: Steelers Met With PSU DT Jordan Hill At The NFL Combine
The 2013 NFL combine continues on in Indianapolis and on Saturday Penn State defensive tackle Jordan Hill said in his talk with the media that the Pittsburgh Steelers were one of the teams that he had already met with, according to Penn Live.
At 6 foot, 1 inch and 291 pounds Hill is a little light in the pants currently to play nose tackle in the Steelers 3-4 defense, but he made it known that he is willing to make the transition from the 4-3 that he played in college if he is asked to do it.
“I\’m a guy that can make a play down the field even though I\’m a defensive tackle,” Hill said, via the report. “I play well through the run and pass. I don\’t feel like strictly a pass rusher or strictly a run stopper. I can do both and feel I can be pretty effective at both of them.”
In his four years at Penn State, Hill recorded 64 solo tackles with 13 being for losses. He also registered 9.5 sacks, had 3 pass breakups, and forced 2 fumbles. He is current draft stock ranges between the fourth and six round and is likely best suited as a 4-3 defensive tackle in the NFL.
The Steelers are permitted to meet with 60 players for 15 minutes during the week.
