Neill's toughness stands out when you turn on the film. He plays with passion and a relentlessness that many of his opponents can't make. Every down he plays through the whistle. On offense, he's a bruising runner out of the backfield. He's fast enough to breakaway in the open field. Perhaps most impressive is how hard he runs with the ball in his hands. Get in his way at your own discretion, as he'll be happy to run right through you. On defense, Niell is a hard-nosed linebacker that can quickly diagnose and disrupt the offense's play. He's a very sound tackler. He's a menace for any QB to deal with. He loves taking the QB to the ground in the backfield.
