Daxton Hill signs rookie contract with Bengals

NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reports that the Cincinnati Bengals have signed their 2022 1st round pick, S Daxton Hill to a rookie contract.

Fantasy Impact

Hill, who was selected with the 31st overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals, is a versatile safety who can contribute in run and pass defense. Hill has elite speed for the safety position, posting a 4.38 40-yard dash time at the NFL Scouting Combine, and he has used that speed to make plays all over the field while playing at deep safety. Hill has a slender frame, measuring in at 6’0” and 191lbs, but he is a willing tackler who isn’t afraid of contact. Hill joins a Bengals team that made a surprising run to the Super Bowl in 2021, and a major part of their playoff run can be attributed to an impressive and difficult to duplicate +7 turnover differential in 4 postseason games. The addition of Hill helps solidify a secondary for a Bengals team that hopes to continue their ascension into perennial contenders.

Daxton Hill selected No. 31 by Cincinnati Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals have selected S Daxton Hill with the No. 31 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

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.
