RB Jeremy Hill has already started mixing into the Bengals' plans at running back. He's had first-team snaps alongside Giovani Bernard and been part of the second unit during the open organized team activity practices. He stands a very real chance of making an impact simply because of the Bengals' plans of having a more physical, run-based offense. His ability to catch passes out of the backfield and his knack of avoiding fumbles also are positives that are in his favor
Hue Jackson is calling the plays in Cincinnati, and he’s planning to run a run-heavy scheme that will feature Giovani Bernard, but Hill has seemingly taken over for BenJarvus Green-Ellis as the team's RB2.
