So I listened to the "Doomsday" podcast with Ed Werder and Matt Mosley. They had Randy Shannon on who was T. Hills Defensive coordinator at UCF and was of course a former coach at the U but also a late round pick of the Cowboys in 1989. He's known for being very honest and straightforward and I found his opinion on T. Hill interesting and perplexing at the same time. He mentioned his first 2 years the prior coaching staff had him lined up directly over the center and his job was to basically knock the center backwards and only had 1.5 sacks his first 2 years. When the new coaching staff came in for his junior year, R. Shannon wanted Hill to shoot gaps and to try to get in the backfield and to the QB similar to what RM wants his 3 tech DT to do in Dallas. The reason he only started 1 game was because Shannon told his players that starters are not set in stone and will be awarded week to week based on that weeks practice habits/film study. He said Hill wasn't too happy about that at first and his practices didn't warrant him starting for most of the season. Positives: Great quickness, burst and twitch. Compared him to W. Sapp but not as athletic and still learning how to use his body to maximize leverage/angles. Good kid, coachable, smart. Thinks RM will get the most out of him and he has a chance to be a great player. Negatives: Didn't buy in to the new staffs philosophy on having to earn your starting position practice to practice including film study. He did bring up a specific game when Hill ignored everything the Defensive staff had preached all week regarding a certain player and that player wound up carving up the defense. So 95% of what R. Shannon talked about was all positive and that Hill is a great kid, very talented, and will be very coachable in Dallas. But yet in 10 of 11 games he didn't work hard enough in practice or film study to warrant starting? Very strange. As many others have mentioned opinions seem to be all over the place when it comes to this kid. McClay has earned my trust up until this point so I will wait and see and hope this kid becomes a great DT.
