Overview

Athletically, Hiller is a classic pocket passer that can be effective when he has time and the space to step into his throws and get his weight transferred to get some zip on the ball. He has a relatively strong arm but the ball does not consistently come out in a tight spiral and will hang in the air too long or fall short of its target at times. He has had some injury issues with both knees over the years and that could affect his status. He tends to have a long throwing motion that will allow defenders to get a jump on his ball at the next level and needs to develop a more compact motion.

Analysis

Strengths

Hiller possesses the size you look for in an NFL pocket passer. Has rare intelligence –graduated in three years and currently working toward graduate degree. Exhibits impressive mental toughness and has played through pain. Is a high-character guy. Shows outstanding arm strength to make all NFL throws. Has been productive during career.

Weaknesses

Does not possess the necessary speed to make plays outside the pocket and is very susceptible to pressure up the middle. Not consistent with his ball action. Durability is a concern after multiple ACL tears. Does not display the ability to scramble and throw on the move when flushed from the pocket.
