New York Giants[edit]

After going undrafted in the 2019 NFL Draft, Hilliman signed with the New York Giants.[2][3][4] He was waived on August 31, 2019 and was signed to the practice squad the next day.[5][6] He was promoted to the active roster on September 26, 2019.[7] Hilliman made his first start with the Giants in week 6 against the New England Patriots due to injuries suffered by starter Saquon Barkley and his backup Wayne Gallman. In the game, Hilliman rushed 11 times for 38 yards and lost a fumble when Jamie Collins stripped the ball out and Kyle Van Noy returned it for a touchdown in the 35-14 loss.
