Bio

      Hill posted two stellar seasons at LSU, setting school record for yards-per-rush (6.25), and was eligible to enter 2014 NFL Draft because he was three years removed from high school ... Has potential to give Bengals their best combination of power and breakaway ability in a rusher since all-time club rushing leader Corey Dillon (1997-2003) ... Six rushes of 50 or more yards as a sophomore ... At 238 pounds, is biggest RB Bengals have drafted above the sixth round since 248-pound Pete Johnson (second round in 1977) ... Second in LSU history in rushing yards per game played (93.7), and though he started just 16 games, his 28 rushing TDs ranked seventh in school history ... Had only one fumble in his 371 career touches, and Tigers recovered it.

    Career transactions: Selected by Cincinnati in second round of 2014 NFL Draft (55th overall) ... Signed with Bengals on 5-27-14.

    Coach Marvin Lewis says: “We evaluated Jeremy as one of the most versatile runners available, both big and strong, with the ability to make people miss, and the ability to succeed as a receiver. His offense at LSU mirrored a lot of things that are done in the NFL, and with his knowledge and ability, we think he can be productive early in his career.”

    College highlights: Played two seasons at LSU (2012-13), appearing in 23 games with 16 starts ... Rushed 345-for-2156 (6.3) and had 26 receptions for 254 yards (9.8) ... Rushed for 100 or more yards in 11 of his 23 games ... His 6.3 per-carry average ranks third in Southeastern Conference history, behind on Auburn’s Bo Jackson (6.62) and Alabama’s Bobby Marlow (6.27) ... Helped team to a 20-6 record. 2013—Rushed for 1401 yards, second-most in school history, on only 203 carries ... His 6.90 per-carry average established an SEC season record (minimum 200 carries), topping 6.79 by former Bengal Garrison Hearst of Georgia in 1992 ... Second in SEC in rushing yards and in rushing TDs (16) ... His rushing average of 116.8 yards per game is second in LSU history, behind only former Bengal Charles Alexander (153.3 in 1977) ... Capped his Tigers career with career-best 216 rushing yards in Outback Bowl win over Iowa. 2012—Did not become a starter until season’s last five games, but his 12 rushing TDs were most in LSU history by a true freshman ... Had multiple TDs in four games, including three vs. Mississippi ... His 755 rushing yards made him first true freshman to lead LSU since 2003, and he averaged 5.32 yards per carry.

    Hill on Hill: “I’m very familiar with the (AFC North) division. It’s tough football, especially when it’s cold weather. You have to be able to cram it in there and get yardage. I think that’s the vision the coaches had, especially around playoff time, to have a back that can get the tough yardage and finish runs late in the game, and that’s something I’m very excited to do.”

    High school: Played at Redemptorist High School in Baton Rouge, La. ... As a senior in 2010, rushed 302-for-2260 (7.48) with 36 TDs and was named a Parade All-American ...
