Player Overview

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Dual-threat passer frequently slips out of the grasp of would-be tacklers to frustrate defenses and extend drives. Not only much faster than he looks; Hill is very strong, boasting the upper body more typical of a linebacker.

WEAKNESSES: Reliance on his mobility and limited passing skill cap his NFL projection. Reluctant to throw passes until his receivers are open and shows less-than-ideal ball placement when doing so. When his primary options are covered, Hill frequently drops his eyes and looks to run - which leads to several eye-popping scrambles but also a number of momentum-changing sacks.

02/16/2016 - BYU quarterback Taysom Hill plans to return for another season. Hill announced via Twitter on Tuesday that he plans to apply for a waiver and is likely to be granted another season by the NCAA. The senior quarterback missed most of the 2015 season after injuring his foot in the opener against Nebraska. Hill, who also missed games in the 2012 and 2014 seasons because of injuries, was a Heisman Trophy candidate in 2013 after passing for 2,938 yards and rushing for 1,344 yards. Offensive coordinator Ty Detmer said there will be an open competition between the quarterbacks despite the presence of Tanner Mangum, who became the first BYU freshman to throw for 3,000 yards last season.

Hill is expected to be limited in spring practices as he continues to heal. Detmer said he's been working out and doing some light jogging, but still has a way to go. Coach Bronco Mendenhall took over at Virginia after the Las Vegas Bowl and courted Hill. They were not the only program to do so. "He was getting recruited from all different sides, so we were part of that," Detmer said. "We talked to him several times. Coach had his wife come in, even one time. Just so everybody knew what was going on. "We definitely wanted him here." BYU told Hill he would get an opportunity to run a pro-style system brought in by Detmer to show NFL talent evaluators. - AP Sports
