Jordan Hill's a Seahawk, and I get to watch him play forever

You've heard the tale before. Jordan Hill was an unheralded 2 star defensive end out of Steelton, Pennsylvania. Quick Side Note- I just noticed that his 40 time during recruitment was 4.7 seconds. Oh, the irony. He wasn't able to crack the lineup until his junior year, but once he got there, he never looked back. Though he played second fiddle to Devon Still during the 2011 season, over the course of his 2 years as a starter, he racked up 123 total tackles, 16.5 tackles for loss, 8 sacks, an interception, and one unforgettable final performance against the Wisconsin Badgers.

If you skip to the end of the 4th quarter and overtime, that's where the domination truly begins.

Hill was one of the anchors for the 2012 Nittany Lions, along with Matt McGloin, Michael Mauti, and Michael Zordich. While Jordan was always more of a lead by example kind of player, rather than a loud, fiery Stephon Morris, his teammates still fell in line behind his leadership. He was able to provide the team with leadership off the field, and a dominating presence in the middle that needs to be replaced this year. He was drafted in the 3rd round, with pick 87 of the 2013 NFL Draft, by the Seattle Seahawks (I went absolutely NUTS when this happened). If you want to keep up with Jordan's progress this year, head over to the Seahawks blog, Field Gulls, or just follow my twitter. I tweet a lot about the Seahawks on Sundays.

Good luck in the NFL, Jordan!
