S Will Hill is hoping to see the field more this season.
Last season, safety Stevie Brown hauled in eight interceptions, leading many to believe that he will start once again in 2013 opposite veteran leader Antrel Rolle. It's too soon to count out second-year safety Will Hill, though.
Hill is a playmaker who will surely work his way into the lineup in some capacity.
Once a highly touted high school athlete, Hill often found himself in the doghouse at the University of Florida, which raised several red flags with potential NFL suitors. After spending a year away from the game, Hill nixed those concerns, becoming one of the Giants' most impactful young defenders during the 2012 season.
He played in 12 games, collecting 38 tackles (solo and assisted), two forced fumbles and two pass defenses.
When given the opportunity, Hill was a disruptive force in several aspects of the game. He displayed the speed to hold his own in coverage or blitz off the edge. Hill is a strong tackler, and he is aggressive enough to make plays near the line of scrimmage.
The Giants like to run a three-safety set, which should allow Hill plenty of chances to get into the mix during the 2013 season. It wouldn't be surprising, however, to see him make a run for a starting job in camp.
