Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TAYSOM HILL: BYU, 6015 235 4.45. Fifth-year senior and three-year starter from Pocatello, ID. Finished fifth in career rushing at BYU. First of all quarterbacks with 2815 yards. Fourth in career total offense. Had 23 wins as BYU’s quarterback. Finished 11th all-time for the Cougars in career passing yards with 6929. A post graduate NFF Scholar-Athlete and was a finalist for the 2016 William V. Campbell Trophy (Academic Heisman). May be too athletic for his own good. Hill ended each year with an injury - Lisfranc, knee injury, broken ankle, and in 2016 with a left elbow strain late in November. He knows only one speed - full go. His closest competitive comparison is Brett Favre. Focused, smart, and a playmaker. A leader who is well respected by his teammates. Plays with confidence, strong in the pocket. Can shake off arm tackles. Good arm strength. Durability is an obvious concern. A developmental player with draftable qualities. 2016 stats: 222/372, 2323 yds, 59.7%, 12 TD, 11 INT, 599 yds rushing, 8 TD, 116.9 QB rating. Not invited to Combine. Seventh round/PFA.
