MCT/ZUMA Press/Icon SMIJordan Hill started slow but finished with a flourish as a senior for Penn State in 2012.
The front seven has always been a strength of Penn State, and that continued in 2012. Defensive tackle Jordan Hill started slow, taking some time to adjust to double-teams, but finished strong and earned praise from other conference coaches, such as Iowa's Kirk Ferentz. He was the star of this line and one of the best in the conference.
