Mississippi State LB Erroll Thompson compares Kylin Hill to star NFL RB
The Mississippi State Bulldogs are entering their first season under head coach Mike Leach, and that means the Air Raid offense is coming to Starkville.
Many have concerns about how star RB Kylin Hill will fit into that system, as Leach doesn’t prioritize running the ball that much.
However, there are some carries and plenty of receptions to go around, so Hill will need to be versatile. Luckily for him, LB Erroll Thompson compared him to one of the most versatile stars in the NFL on Wednesday:
Erroll Thompson just compared Mississippi State running back Kylin Hill to New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara.
Good company, I'd say.

Kamara is one of the best receiving threats out of the backfield for the New Orleans Saints. The former Tennessee Volunteer racked up 1,330 all-purpose yards and 6 touchdowns last season despite being limited by injuries.
Can Hill put up even better numbers for the Bulldogs this fall?
