2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Ronnie Hillman, RB, San Diego State
Hillman has fantastic agility in tight spaces. He can move side to side and cut in and out of his breaks. He ran a 4.45 40 yard dash at the combine and showed good explosion with a 37-inch vertical.
There are some durability concerns. He never missed a ton of time, but gets banged up often. Shows a solid patience to let blocks develop. He can do a better job of taking what each play gives him rather than trying to dance in the hole.
Not a natural pass catcher (which would be helpful given his ability in open spaces). Blocks relatively well and chip blocks consistently when running a route from the backfield.
Hillman isn't a third down back, but he could develop into one over time. For now, he's an undersized first and second down back who can be brought in as a change of pace and spell a team's No. 1 RB.
