NFL Draft 2017 Prospect: Shaq Hill
Name: Shaq Hill
College: Eastern Washington
Position: Wide Receiver
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Shaq: If I could describe my playing style in 3 words it would be fast, strong, savage.
Q: How are you going to train/prepare this offseason in preparation for the draft or other pro opportunities?
Shaq: I trained at Ford Sports in Seattle and continue to train in my hometown, Stockton. Also back at my college city, Cheney.
Q: If you could compare yourself to one current or former NFL player who would it be and why?
Shaq: If I could compare myself to a NFL player right now it would have to be Tyreek Hill simply because I can do a little of everything. Punt return, KR, slot or out wide, even could play RB as the chiefs use Hill.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
Shaq: When I’m watching film, I’ll look tendencies first. So what does the defense like to be in, how they rotate and whats their most used coverage vs personnel. Second, I’ll look for the weak links in the secondary as well as technique. And lastly, I’ll look to counter their strengths.
Q: What separates you from other players at your position?
Shaq: What separates me from other players is my speed and toughness. I feel like there’s no one on defense that can guard me or out muscle me. I’m not scared to knock out a LB 230 + plus on a crack back block. Or even blocking one face to face.
Q: What kind of abilities would you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Shaq: I could bring a lot of versatility to a team from special teams to offense. Special teams, I’m dangerous in the return game and offense, I can be dangerous in many spots. Off the field, I’m a fun person. Never have to worry about attitude with me and never easy to get along with.
Q: What is your final pitch/sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
Shaq: To the NFL teams out there, I’ve always been a diamond in the rough. Film will tell you no different. I have the savage mentality that you’ll love. And for the teams that pass me up in a few weeks, you’ll regret it.
