Film Breakdown: What First Round Pick Dax Hill Brings to the Bengals' Defense

Hill joins Jessie Bates and Vonn Bell in Cincinnati.

The Cincinnati Bengals took Michigan safety Dax Hill with the 31st pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. 

He is one of the most versatile players in this draft class. He was named first team to the All-Big Ten Team as a junior, playing both slot corner and safety. He’s an extremely fluid and athletic prospect that should find his way onto the field as a rookie. 

Let's take a closer look at Hill's game.
