Projected Round
Athletic college signal caller with a long injury history. Patient in the pocket, displays terrific awareness and a sense for what’s happening on the field. Remains poised under the rush, easily gets outside the pocket and keeps his eyes downfield. Natural looking off the safety, scans the field and locates the open wideout. Flashes tremendous accuracy and pass placement. Puts touch on throws when necessary. Athletic, easily escapes the rush or turns upfield and pick up yardage with his feet.
Does not always release the ball with proper fundamentals, throwing off his back foot or even flat-footed. Lacks a next-level arm and cannot drive deep passes, as his long throws tend to float in the air. Struggles under the rush and lacks great pocket-passer size.
When healthy Hill was an effective college signal caller who flashed dominance. His film is worthy of a late-round selection but his lack of durability plus his age make it very unlikely he’ll get out of camp this summer, either as a quarterback or at another position.
