Hill is familiar with the position of nickel cornerback and has moved around in different spots while playing safety at Michigan. He was asked about his versatility in position during a conference call just after he was drafted.

Hill is built like a cornerback and covers like a cornerback, but he hits and has the range of a safety. He is ready to do what it takes to defend the Bengals. Being a hybrid player for my entire career. I don’t want to be restricted because I know that I can play other positions, whatever they may be, whenever they may be. I’m ready for the journey.”
