Will Hill, S: Chicago Bears Safety Will Hill might simply lack the dedication required for the all-encompassing NFL lifestyle. The Giants released Hill despite a breakout 2013 season, as the league suspended the safety six games for his third violation of the league's substance-abuse policy. Based on his recent comments, Hill sounds as though he has continued to make excuses for his repeated mistakes. Hopefully the light will come on at some point for Hill, who is a tremendously talented player. Pro Football Focus (subscription required) graded Hill as their second-best safety of 2013, thanks largely to superb coverage abilities that helped him hold opposing quarterbacks to a 62.0 quarterback rating. Though Hill did concede 19 receptions on 31 targets, those catches went for just 9.8 yards on average, an extremely impressive number for a free safety. Hill's skill set would play well in Chicago, where the Bears' offseason defensive renovations could have them contending for the NFC North crown. However, Chicago signed only a pair of reserve-caliber safeties in M.D. Jennings and Ryan Mundy, and 2013 starter Chris Conte is still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery. Fourth-rounder Brock Vereen could contribute, but the Bears do not have any bona fide starters they can lean on to command the secondary. Hill is the type of player who could boost the Bears in the second half of the season. According to Pro-Football-Reference, Chicago conceded 59 pass plays of 20 or more yards, the seventh-worst mark in the league. Conversely, Hill's Giants gave up 41 such plays, the fifth-lowest mark. At 24 years old, Hill is the rare athlete who has hit the market while still ascending as a player. His off-field issues may derail an otherwise promising career, but on a non-guaranteed contract, the Bears could very well unearth the player who helps end their three-year playoff drought.
