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.

04/22/2015 - BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall believes this year's Cougars can have the most prolific offense in school history. Those are strong sentiments about a program that has had one of the Top 5 total offenses in Division I 13 times since 1972, including the No. 1 offense in the nation during the 1984 national championship season. Mendenhall is confident in every offensive position, but the return of quarterback Taysom Hill is what could make the unit an all-time great. "Just having him around changes everything," Mendenhall said. "We were on the verge of breaking into the elite level of teams a year ago with Taysom, and when he goes down we struggle. "Just by having him around, our team is more confident. They feel more capable and they're certain we can score points against any team that we play. Just having that changes the outlook of what the season can be."

BYU wrapped up spring practices Friday and Hill was limited throughout due to his recovery from a broken leg and torn ligaments. He did not participate in 11-on-11 periods or any contact drills. However, Hill worked the rest of the periods with a focus on improving his passing skills. Hill threw for 2,938 yards and 19 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2013 while running for 1,344 yards and 10 touchdowns. He was in the Heisman conversation last year as BYU went 4-0 before he went down with the injury against Utah State on Oct. 3. The frustration set in as Hill was forced to watch his teammates struggle without him. It took 3 ?? months before Hill could properly plant and throw the football. He said the mental and emotional parts of seeing the season spiral were worse than the physical rehab. - AP Sports
