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.

10/22/2014 - Washington State probably won't even reach a bowl game this season. But Cougars quarterback Connor Halliday appears to have the national yards passing title sewn up. Halliday's 3,344 yards are nearly 700 more than anyone else - and he didn't even play this weekend. Texas A&M's Kenny Hill had by far his worst game of the season on Saturday, throwing for just 138 yards in a 59-0 loss to Alabama. Hill is 695 yards behind Halliday. West Virginia's Clint Trickett is third with 2,525 yards after helping the Mountaineers upset Baylor 41-27. Halliday is also first nationally with 28 TD passes, and he should shatter the school's single-season record of 34 that he shares with Ryan Leaf. Of course, all those numbers ring a bit hollow considering that the Cougars are 2-5. - AP Sports
