Really intriguing. Blew Everyone away at the Manning passing academy. Looked like he was going to shine after transferring to Mississippi State, but kept getting hurt (sound familiar?).

I've kinda' had my eye on Jalen Hurts for that position, but Stevens would cost much less. He may be there in round 6-7, or even UDFA. I don't think Hurts would appreciate the Swiss army knife role, likely wants to be a QB or nothing.

There’s only 1 Taysom Hill. There hasn’t ever been anyone quite like him, and hoping to find another is crazy.
Is crazy like ,, why not? Pretty sure someone will spit up a 6th to find out. We have Taysom and the rest of the league wants to copy. Can we buy shares somehow...lol?

Thank you. Whenever we have a great player it seems like people think that people like Taysom Hill are around every corner.
When is the last time we had a player like Taysom Hill ?
Why haven't we duplicated the Dome Patrol ?
Why hasn't anyone found another Drew Brees ?

It’s more that Taysom Hill has opened the door for others with similar attributes to try other positions while still working towards being a QB.

In this case, there are similarities and reasons why it would make sense to give it a shot, especially considering it wouldn’t cost a high draft pick.

Was there in the Dome for opening game against UL and Stevens looked good both throwing and running the ball.
Looked good the next week against USM until he got hurt. He was snake bit the rest of the season.

Wouldn't mind taking a flyer on him as a 7th rounder or UDFA. What makes it interesting is that the Saints have talked to him.
