Hill was able to stay healthy during spring camp and put himself in line for playing time during his final season at Wisconsin.
Though he began as a walk-on, Hill has always talked about as one of the more athletic players on the roster. Injuries, however, have plagued his career at UW. This is his last chance to make an impact.
If healthy, Hill should battle for time at outside linebacker with Vince Biegel and Joe Schobert. He's one of the better linebackers in coverage.
With some unexpected shakeups at the position this summer, Wisconsin is now looking for a safety to fill the void opposite starter Dezmen Southward. Trotter, who has game experience, will likely get the first crack.
Trotter came in as a heralded recruit from Marquette but has yet to make a significant impact at Wisconsin. Critics have always questioned his speed in the secondary.
Trotter will be given every opportunity to earn a starting role in 2013. It will be interesting to see if he's able to hold off a host of younger talent.
It's amazing what Phillips has been able to endure during his time on campus. Three serious knee surgeries under his belt and Phillips is still fighting to keep his college football dream alive.
For Phillips, the quality of life after football is at stake. Is he risking too much by trying to overcome three ACL tears in the same knee? He's back for his sixth and final year of eligibility this fall.
Phillips will be battling against Joel Stave and Tanner McEvoy during camp. Many expect the starter to come from the two younger quarterbacks, however.
