Giants Sign Third-Round DL B.J. Hill

The Giants have signed another draft pick. ESPN’s Field Yates tweets that the team has signed third-round defensive lineman B.J. Hill. The rookie was selected with the 69th pick in this year’s draft.

The 22-year-old had four standout season at NC State, playing in a total of 48 games. His best year came in 2015, when he finished the campaign with 50 tackles, 11 tackles for loss, and 3.5 sacks. He earned an All-ACC honorable mention nod during his senior campaign after he finished with 55 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, and one forced fumble.

Veteran Damon Harrison is currently slotted in as the team’s starting nose tackle, but the 6-foot-3, 311-pound Hill appears to be his natural successor. For the time being, the rookie will compete with Robert Thomas, A.J. Francis, Jordan Williams, and Josh Banks for playing time.

Following the move, the Giants still have two unsigned draft picks: first-round running back Saquon Barkley and fifth-round defensive tackle R.J. McIntosh.
