LSU running back Jeremy Hill entering the NFL Draft

We’re rapidly approaching the point where the last good player in college football should turn off the lights on his way out the door.

The latest player to leave school early is LSU running back Jeremy Hill, a third-year sophomore, who announced his decision via Twitter.

Hill was suspended for one game and a quarter of another for after being arrested for simple battery outside a bar, but still led the Tigers with 1,401 yards last year.

Hill’s an interesting draft prospect who could go in the first three rounds, and with the rookie salary structure set, he’s decided to start the clock on getting to a second contract sooner.

The old record of 73 early entries appears set to go down in a big way this spring, with some thinking 100 or more players could leave school early.

    He just has so much fight and so much gas in the tank. It was great watching him against Iowa in the bowl game with Mettenberger out, Hill just kept chugging and chugging, ripping off big 20 yard chunks until he broke a ~35 yard TD run. Pretty emblematic of how he ran all season.

    As an LSU fan I’m sad to see him go but I wish him the best of luck!

    Hill will become the first person charged with a “knockout game” crime to become a NFL player

    Jeremy can’t figure out what everyone was so upset about. I mean, it was simply battery.

    I wouldn’t mind if he slips to the 4th round & the Cardinals draft him to pair with Andre Ellington. He his the type of big RB the Cards need.

    He could be the first RB drafted at 6′ 1″ 235 lb will be a power back.
