COLLEGE FOOTBALL: NOV 03 Georgia at Kentucky

With the 190th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals took Georgia Bulldogs offensive lineman Trey Hill. NFL.com gave Hill a priority free agent grade, while Dane Brugler gave him a Round 5-6 grade.

The 6-3, 319-pound Hill first became a full-time starter in 2019 when he made 14 starts at center. As a true freshman the previous year, he played in all 14 games with starts in the final four at right guard.

This past season, Hill was limited to eight starts as he battled knee issues before shutting it down to have surgery on both knees to repair torn menisci. Had it not been for the injury, we’re likely talking about Hill going a round or two higher in this draft.

Hill could challenge for playing time at center this year depending on the recovery of Trey Hopkins (torn ACL).
