It’s official. With the 58th overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft the Dallas Cowboys have selected defensive tackle Trysten Hill. The Cowboys needed help along the middle of the defensive line, Hill should help there. The Cowboys passed on a group of safeties to get Hill, Rod Marinelli reportedly liked him a lot.

He’s the most talented and impactful defensive lineman on the team, but concerns over his football character and maturity have hindered his standing on the team at times. Despite starting just once this season, Hill was a gap bandit who disrupted running games and spent time harassing quarterbacks with consistent effort and hustle. He needs to get stronger and play with better control, but his get-off and athletic hands/feet should make him a rotational one-gapper if the maturity and coachability check out.
