With their third-round pick, 69th overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, the New York Giants selected North Carolina State defensive tackle B.J. Hill. That came three picks after the Giants added outside linebacker Lorenzo Carter.

Hill is a 6-foot-3, 311-pound interior lineman. NFL.com says:

Hill is a one-gapping, upfield defensive tackle with decent athleticism who seems to be able to find the football at an adequate rate despite lacking some play strength. While Hill’s production has been solid, he will have to develop more strength at the point of attack or become a more explosive upfield player to set himself apart and become a rotational defensive tackle.

In its draft guide, Inside the Pylon says:

“A solid technically sound interior run defender that projects best as a two-down one technique in even fronts, or as a five technique in odd fronts.”
