After going undrafted in the 2018 NFL draft, Ohio State defensive tackle Michael Hill will get his opportunity to earn a spot on an NFL roster at the Detroit Lions' rookie minicamp, which he will participate in on a tryout basis.

Hill has not yet signed a contract with the Lions, a source close to Hill told Eleven Warriors, but he could earn a contract by performing well in the minicamp.

After starting for the Buckeyes at nose tackle in 2016, recording 21 total tackles with three tackles for loss, Hill played only sparingly in 2017, recording just one tackle – a sack against Michigan – for the entire season after being suspended for the first six games of the year due to a failed drug test.

Now, though, Hill will have a chance to redeem himself, as he looks to prove that he has improved both on and off the field and is capable of contributing to an NFL defensive line rotation.
