Trevon Hill redshirted as a Freshman in 2015 and went on to start in 16 out of 30 games throughout the next three seasons. Hill recorded 94 tackles, 20 for loss, and 11.5 sacks for Virginia Tech. A fiery exchange between Hill and a staffer half-way through his junior season led to his dismissal from VT, and he ultimately ended up at Miami for his senior year.
Hill gained immediate eligibility and was able to earn extensive playing time on a deep UM defensive line. Hill was productive for the Hurricanes in a backup role, as he registered 27 tackles, 9.5 for loss, 4.5 sacks, and one pass breakup in 12 games and 1 start.

Trevon Hill has played up and down on the edge and is able to rush from both left and right sides. Hill has a solid lean into the top of his rush. Hill’s athleticism allows him to harass moving targets at QB. Although it may have not been displayed throughout his senior season, he is a much better athlete than his body type would indicate. Hill’s size, athleticism, and ability to drop into coverage and change direction smoothly make him a solid edge rush target in the draft.
The main concern for Hill is his character, in large part due to his dismissal from Virginia Tech. While it’s never been stated what he did to earn the dismissal, one can only assume it must’ve been pretty bad.
Hill has burly hips and below-average body type. He’ll need to improve his fundamentals and aggressiveness in order to thrive as an edge rusher. His below-average play, strength, and average upfield charge will more than likely earn him a developmental spot on a practice squad.
What They’ve Said
“Virginia Tech grad transfer who is short on physical traits, play strength and explosiveness, but has enough athletic ability to create pocket traffic as a rusher at both schools. He’ll be pegged as a standup outside linebacker, but will need to improve his fundamentals and aggressiveness in order to handle edge-setting duties. While he lacks threatening edge speed, he might have a shot at finding a practice squad as a developmental edge rusher.” –NFL Analyst Lance Zierlein
