Hill, the 63rd player taken overall, joins former teammates Jarvis Green and Rohan Davey and running back Kevin Faulk as LSU products playing for coach Bill Belichek. Given the coach's past working relationship with LSU head man Nick Saban, Hill is expected to make a smooth transition into the defense of the defending Super Bowl champions.
"He gives us depth on the defensive line," Belichick said. "He's a tall guy with long arms. He's been disruptive in the passing game and has played at a high level of competition there in the SEC. Again based on the fact that he's been at LSU and has been in that program and system, it's a guy that we can evaluate and see him do a lot of things similar to what we are doing."
Hill was forced to leave LSU after his junior season after contacting an agent. He had second guessed his decision to enter the draft and was contemplating a return to the Tigers, but his contact with an agent forced his hand.
Hill ended his LSU career with 117 tackles, 10 sacks, one interception, one fumble recovery and two forced fumbles.
