Leroy Hill, Jr. (born September 14, 1982) is an American football linebacker who is currently a free agent. He played high school football in Milledgeville, GA for the Baldwin High School Braves. He was selected with the 34th pick of the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft out of Clemson University by the Seahawks.
Injuries to starting veteran linebacker Jamie Sharper put him into the starting lineup in his rookie year, and he did very well, totaling 72 tackles and 7.5 sacks from the outside linebacker position. He and rookie middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu were two of the biggest contributors to the 2005 Seahawks squad that went to Super Bowl XL. Hill was also named to the Pro Bowl roster that year but was unable to play due to an ankle injury. He wears #56 for the Seahawks. In the 2009 offseason, Hill was tagged as the Seahawks franchise player. The Seahawks removed the franchise tag on Hill on April 26, 2009, making him a free agent because the Seahawks drafted highly touted Wake Forest Linebacker Aaron Curry at number 4 overall in the 2009 NFL Draft. However, several days later, on April 30, 2009 Leroy Hill re-signed with the Seattle Seahawks on a 6-year 38 million dollar deal.
