Bio: 
Two-year starter who led Tulane with 210 carries for 1,091 yards and 12 touchdowns and earned Second Team All-AAC honors in 2017. Was the team’s leading rusher with 759 yards and nine touchdowns on 135 carries as a junior. Combined to make four starts in his first two seasons with the Green Wave, rushing 212 times for 1,098 yards and nine TDs while adding 53 receptions for 511 yards and two scores.
Pos: 
Tough, resilient ball carrier coming off a solid campaign. Patient, methodical and will pick and choose his spots throughout the course of his run. Displays outstanding vision, quickly finds the cutback lanes and immediately moves into open space. Keeps his feet moving, breaks arm tackles and displays tremendous short-area quickness with the ability to bounce around defenders. Helps the quarterback sell ball fakes and gives effort blocking.
Neg: 
Really cannot create or make defenders miss. Not a back who’s going to pick up much yardage off initial contact. Marginal pass catcher out of the backfield.
Analysis: 
Hilliard was a solid college ball carrier but has size and athletic limitations. His ability to catch the ball in camp this summer will be the deciding factor on whether he makes a roster.
