Default Ronnie Hillman, HB, San Diego St. (SO)



He is draft eligible. He has a decent amount of miles on him in college and has played (exceedingly well in fact) hurt. Family doesn't have a lot of money. Losing Lindley after the season. Translation: 100% going pro.

Wondering what others think of him. I have been watching him for two years and a few things stick out.

-Yes, he's pretty slight. Although the black uniforms make it a little exaggerated. He is VERY wiry strong despite the lack of obvious bulk.


edit: Here's an interview where you can see, he's not exactly tiny.

-Awesome body lean for a guy his size. Almost never loses yardage. Deceptive inside runner, he has had the occasional game where he tries to break too many runs outside but whenever they have had him coached up to stay inside he does really well in there.

-In space he is just deadly, his combination of lateral moves, change of gears, and very good top end speed have resulted in a lot of fantastic runs over the course of his short career. His speed has translated best against big conference competition such as when he single-handedly destroyed Missouri and only a bad call at the end preserved the Missou win.

-plays really well when hurt. Last week with a sore high ankle sprain that limited him to about 80% of his top speed, he had 192 yards.

I'd like to know what the experts think.

Here are some recent highlights against Wyoming including a 99-yard run.

Here is a highlight video called the second coming...

The second coming of whom though? Faulk? LOL... I have given it a lot of thought, and the guy he reminds me of the most is Priest Holmes. They both had sort of a gliding, shuffling action to the way they run behind the line, not picking up their feet too much unless they hit bodies on the ground or get to the second level... both have/had incredible quick lateral movement to make people totally miss in short areas. Although Priest was bigger and stronger, Hillman will probably bulk up eventually.
