Week 1 of the NFL preseason is in the books. Let’s look back and see how Penn State’s 2013 draft class (Jordan Hill, Gerald Hodges, and Michael Mauti) as well as undrafted free agent Matt McGloin fared.
Jordan Hill, DT (Seattle Seahawks)
Hill’s team, the Seattle Seahawks, had no trouble in dispatching the San Diego Chargers 31-10 on Thursday night. Hill, possibly being counted on in the rotation at DT this year, saw limited action in his team’s opener. The 3rd round draft choice was able to make 1 tackle on the night.
According to the depth chart released by the Seahawks prior to their first preseason game, Hill enters the contest working as the 3rd-string RDT behind starter Brandon Mebane and backup Clinton McDonald. However, the most indicative aspect of a team heading into the regular season is what players play in the 3rd preseason game. That is the contest where the starters and the backups usually play half to 3/4 of the game.
Next up, the Seahawks will host Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on Saturday, August 17th at 10:00 PM.
