2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Tim Hiller

  • Good height and adequate bulk
  • Very productive
  • Strong football IQ
  • Smart and knows when to throw ball away
  • Anticipates blitz
  • Makes good decisions
  • Sharp and accurate in short routes
  • Leader
  • Good character
  • Nice timing
  • Plays in pro-style offense

  • Very weak arm strength
  • Floats deep ball
  • Not very mobile
  • Footwork needs some polish
  • Slow on progression reads
  • Very limited upside

    Summary: Hiller projects as a career backup because he simply lacks the arm strength to drive the ball down the field. Some team will take a chance on him and try to develop him into a starter, but defenses can simply shut him down by challenging his ability to drive the ball down the field. Hiller has a lot of tools a quarterbacks coach can work with, and he might end up being a valuable project, a la Matt Cassell. Hiller's decision-making will probably get worse in the NFL as he will face much tougher defenses with his limited arm.

    Player Comparison: Sage Rosenfels. Hiller and Rosenfels lack the arm strength and project as backups.
