Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Good frame for a drop-back passer with plenty of arm strength and while he isn't particularly elusive, he does have decent speed for his size. He typically throws in-breaking routes like slants and posts well, showing zip and good placement.

At times shows very good accuracy on both intermediate and deep out-breaking routes, consistently throwing before his receivers turn. Deft touch on verticals down the sideline and when dropping passes over the defenders with their backs turned to him.

WEAKNESSES: At times too willing to take chances downfield (22 interceptions in 2013). Can get scatter-shot, especially when he doesn't set his feet.

Halliday will occasionally drop it in the bucket on touch throws but too often throws long.

--Rob Rang (9/1/14)

Player Overview

Halliday, signed by former head coach Paul Wulff, is not the typical Mike Leach quarterback. The lanky 6-foot-4, 198-pounder has a live arm and loves to show it off.

Halliday set the school record with 4,597 passing yards and tied Ryan Leaf's single-season mark with 34 touchdown passes thrown in 2013.
