BYU junior QB Taysom Hill threw for 187 yards and rushed for 72 yards in Thursday's 41-33 victory over Virginia.
He finished 13-for-23 with two touchdowns, and added another score on the ground. We like Hill as a collegiate playmaker, but he's going to have to switch positions to make it in the NFL. He's simply not accurate or comfortable enough in the pocket to take snaps under center in the pros. CBS Sports' Rob Rang agrees, writing last week that Hill's "reliance on his mobility and limited passing skill cap his NFL projection." Sep 20 - 9:08 PM

BYU junior QB Taysom Hill's "reliance on his mobility and limited passing skill cap his NFL projection," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"While the flashier of BYU's runners for much of the night and a dynamic player at this level, Hill's reliance on his mobility and limited passing skill cap his NFL projection," Rang wrote. While the darkhorse Heisman candidate threw for 200 yards and ran for 160 yards in Thursday's 33-25 victory over Houston, Rang notes that Hill "was reluctant to throw passes until his receivers were open and shows less-than-ideal ball placement when doing so." Hill is one of the country's most dangerous playmakers, but he doesn't throw well enough to either win the Heisman or project to the NFL behind center.

BYU junior QB Taysom Hill threw for 200 yards and ran for 160 yards in Thursday's 33-25 victory over Houston.

Hill was as shaky through the air as he was dominant on the ground. He finished 21-for-34 with a touchdown and two interceptions. However, he averaged 6.2 yards per carry and crossed the goal line as a runner. Hill was mentioned as a darkhorse Heisman candidate over the summer after ranking No. 10 nationally in total offense last season with 329.4 yards per game (2,938 passing yards, 19 touchdowns, 14 interceptions, 1,344 rushing yards and 10 rushing TDs in 2013). Hill is one of the country's most dangerous playmakers, but he doesn't throw well enough to either win the Heisman or project to the NFL behind center.

NFL.com touts BYU junior QB Taysom Hill as a sleeper Heisman candidate.

Hill isn't terribly well known, but that's about to change. He ranked No. 10 nationally in total offense last season with 329.4 yards per game and added 2,938 passing yards, 19 touchdowns, 14 interceptions, 1,344 rushing yards and 10 rushing TDs. Hill "should be even more productive in 2014, especially if he makes the expected improvement as a passer," wrote staff writer Mike Huguenin. He's going to have to: A 53.9 completion percentage simply isn't good enough for a star QB. BYU has an easy schedule, which should allow the Cougars to collect wins while Hill simultaneously piles up statistics, a Heisman formula if there ever was one.
