Cincinnati Bengals' Hue Jackson: 'Jeremy Hill can surpass expectations'

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson believes that running back Jeremy Hill can push on from his solid rookie campaign in the NFL in the 2015 season.

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson has called on running back Jeremy Hill to live up to expectations in his second season in the NFL.

The Bengals selected Hill in the second round of the 2014 Draft, and he had a promising rookie campaign in the league by rushing for over 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns.

Jackson believes that the 22-year-old is more than capable of producing an even better season in the 2015 campaign.

He told ESPN: "We can't run from it because they're going to say it. Now you've got to go live up to it.

"There should be no pressure in that. All it is to go out and work. To me, if a guy wants to be great, he's got to relish that. He's got to want that and then go exceed it.

"That would be my challenge to [Hill]. I expect him to exceed whatever the expectation is about him."

The Bengals face the Oakland Raiders in the 2015 season opener on September 13.
