PROSPECT SUMMARY - TREY HILL

Trey Hill played center for the Bulldogs' offense. He has started games aligning at guard as well. In the run game, he comes off the ball hard. He is heavy at the point of attack and plays with good natural leverage. As a result, he is hard to bull rush. Although he plays with very good power in a phone booth, his limited agility shows when he has to move and engage. This is at the second level with regards to run blocking, and also when he has to be reactive to games as a pass blocker. He’s somewhat heavy-footed and probably best suited at guard where he can focus on his run or pass blocking. 

Ideal Role: Swing interior OL.

Scheme Fit: Power running scheme.

FILM EVALUATION

Written by Drae Harris

Games watched: Auburn (2019), LSU (2019), Auburn (2020)

Best Game Studied: Auburn (2020)

Worst Game Studied: LSU (2019)

Competitive Toughness: He displays good competitive toughness. When his lack of good agility puts him in bad positions, he competes hard to recover. He also shows good tenacity to finish as a run blocker. 

Balance: His balance is average overall. He bends at the waist and appears to lack good flexibility. He can be pulled by defensive linemen and has been on the ground some.

Anchor: He demonstrates a good anchor. He is difficult to bullrush due to his size, strength, and natural leverage. He has no issues maintaining the depth of the pocket. 

Lateral Mobility: His lateral mobility needs to improve. He struggles when he has to come off his man, redirect laterally to engage a defender on a twist. Forcing him to move laterally is a good way for the defender to gain an advantage on him. 

Power at P.O.A.: He does have good power at the point of attack. He comes off the ball hard in the run game and is tenacious when run blocking. He also handles the bull rush well due to his power and leverage. 

Hand Technique: His hand technique is just OK. While he shows good ability to snap and get his hands ready in his pass set, there are also instances of him getting his hands outside of the frame. He needs to develop more consistency in this regard. 

Football IQ: His football IQ is average overall. While he shows the ability to locate the MIKE and then handle his responsibilities, there are moments where he is late reacting to games inside. There were too many moments of him showing a lack of awareness and instincts to anticipate. 

Versatility: He has good versatility overall. He currently aligns at center but has also started games at guard. However, he may be better suited to play guard but has at least shown the ability to play either position in a pinch. 

Pass Set: His pass set is average overall. While he has shown good ability in a phone booth, when he has to move against agile defenders, he struggles. He does a good job of handling the bull rush, though.

Flexibility: He lacks good flexibility overall. He has moments of bending at the waist while engaging a defender. In these moments, defenders can pull him, get him off balance, and get him on the ground.
