The NFL’s Search for the Next Taysom Hill Is Fundamentally Flawed

We need to talk about what Taysom Hill is.

Just about half of the NFL has been described as searching for a “Taysom Hill-type” or “their own Taysom Hill.” Sometimes, this label is used on players seeking a path similar to Hill’s—late-round or undrafted college quarterbacks who hope to catch on with NFL rosters by displaying positional versatility. Last year, the comparison was made for sixth-round pick Trace McSorley and undrafted QBs Nick Fitzgerald and Eric Dungey. This year, seventh-rounder Tommy Stevens was pegged as a “Taysom Hill clone.”

Good find, Oak! I'd give a "LOVE" on that one if I could. That perfectly defines Hill's value. Great article.

Even if a coach gets someone with a similar skill set they won't know how to best utilize him. Payton is a master mind and other teams can't copy his style. It's just that Payton is so creative and is truly a visionary right there with Bill Walsh.
