Matt Waldman’s RSP Film Room breaks down Oklahoma State running back Justice Hill, a big-play threat whose game offers a glimmer of what made Reggie Bush an NFL big-play threat.
Fans pay to see big plays and it’s why Justice Hill sells tickets. He’s a quick-twitch runner with moves and big-play speed.
With the exception of Hill’s receiving, this week’s RSP Film Room examines every facet of the Cowboy’s game over the course of 25 minutes:
- Reading the line of scrimmage as a runner.
- Footwork influencing balance.
- Engaging defenders at the point of attack as a blocker.
- Second- and third-level decision-making.
- Functional power.
- Projecting his best match with the blocking scheme.
Hill’s physical traits evoke memories of backs like Reggie Bush, Chris Johnson, and the best of what we’re seeing from Phillip Lindsay’s rookie year. Hill’s technical skills aren’t as accomplished as Bush and Johnson but mentioning these former runners is intended to give you an idea of how the player might fit with a team and not a literal comparison of his talents to Pro Bowl players.
He’s an exciting college back who will definitely get a shot in the NFL to prove that he can do what he’s done in Stillwater.
