Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman B.J. Hill turned the narrative around pretty quickly.

Hill came over before the season when the Bengals traded away first-round draft bust Billy Price. He was, if nothing else, viewed as solid depth and just a way for the team to get something in return for the loss of Price.

So much so, the numbers are actually a little staggering. Over at Pro Football Focus, Hill has the 16th-best overall grade of any defensive lineman at 75.1 over nine games.

Hill has been especially good against the run, ranking sixth overall with a run-stop percentage of 13.9. His run defense grade of 77.6 ranks 11th among his position.
