Rams CBs Hill, Robey-Coleman earn praise from Pro Football Focus

Rams cornerbacks Troy Hill and Nickell Robey-Coleman have been playing at a high level since Week 6, and it caught the attention of the folks over at Pro Football Focus (PFF).

According to PFF, Hill has the highest overall defense grade and ninth-highest coverage grade among cornerbacks in Weeks 6-11, minimum of 100 snaps. Robey-Coleman, meanwhile, has the third-highest overall defense grade and shares the third-highest coverage under the same criteria.

On the season, Hill has allowed receptions on just 47.1 percent of targets thrown his way. For Robey-Coleman, he has only allowed receptions on 56.1 percent of targets thrown his way.

Against the Bears, Hill posted six total tackles, one sack and one interception, while Robey-Coleman finished with four total tackles and one pass breakup.

"I thought he just continued to compete," Rams head coach Sean McVay said when asked about Hill after last Sunday's game against the Bears. "He's a complete corner and if he gets his opportunities, he's got the ball skills to be able to deliver. That was a big play right there if he's coming up in run support, but a lot of different coverage principles that we activated tonight and I thought Troy did a great job in addition to really the 10 (players) around him and all the different personnel groupings we activated."
