Mike Hilton Led NFL CBs In Run-Stop Percentage In 2017

Mike Hilton has already become a fan favorite in Pittsburgh during his first season after spending time on the practice squad for the Pittsburgh Steelers the year before. By the second half of the season opener, the former undrafted free agent had already taken over the nickel cornerback role and established himself as one of the better players in their secondary.

His most endearing quality is the fact that he embraces every aspect of the game. Far from being just a coverage player, he does not prevent his diminutive height from being a physical presence in all components, and is an active participant both in the pass rush and against the run.
