NFL QB: New Orleans Saints
Career Highlights: One of the NFL’s most athletic and versatile players, Taysom Hill is listed as the New Orleans Saints backup quarterback, yet, has played several different offensive positions including kick returner and running back. Hill also plays on the defensive side of the ball on special teams as the team’s primary gunner, in addition to blocking several punts. For his versatility, the Saints’ media has nicknamed him “The Human Swiss Army Knife.” During the 2020 season, Hill won three of four games as a starting quarterback when he filled in for an injured Drew Brees. For the season, he completed 88 of 121 passes for 928 yards (98.8 passer rating), and ran for 457 yards on 87 attempts for a 5.3 average per rush. Hill originally signed as an undrafted free agent with the Green Bay Packers out of Brigham Young University in 2017, the Saints claimed him off waivers and he began his pro career later that year recording two special teams tackles. His versatility has allowed him to block a punt, rush for a touchdown and catch a touchdown pass, all in the same game.
