The Cincinnati Bengals have selected S Daxton Hill with the No. 31 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. (NFL Draft Tracker)
After upgrading their offensive line in free agency the Bengals elected to use their first selection in the draft to upgrade their secondary. Hill was one of the top safety prospects in the draft and filled up the stat sheet for Michigan in 2021 with 70 tackles, two interceptions, and nine pass breakups. Hill possesses a high football IQ with good speed and the versatility to fit in several coverage schemes. Areas of improvement could be getting better in run support and tackling.
