Is Taysom Hill a franchise quarterback?

Drew Brees is coming back to the New Orleans Saints in 2020, but many think Taysom Hill is the heir apparent at quarterback in New Orleans or another NFL city. With his ability to run, catch and throw, some experts say he is a triple-threat quarterback who has the skills to be a successful starter in the NFL. Others think he's a versatile player who takes advantage of off-balanced defenses but will be utterly ineffective once he's game-planned for. What do you think? 🏈

There's no doubt the league is trending towards versatile quarterbacks. Look at what Lamar Jackson did to the league in 2019. Taysom may not have the breakaway speed, but he has displayed more than enough skill to show he is worthy of being a dual-threat quarterback in the NFL.

He averaged 5.8 yards per rush and 12.8 yards per catch in 2019. He finished the year with seven total touchdowns. If passing is a question mark for some folks, he proved he could be serviceable finishing with his BYU career completing 58.2 percent of his passes. That accuracy can improve with more reps.

He needs to be given a chance to be a franchise quarterback.

Let's just ignore the people that are comparing Lamar Jackson and Cam Newton to Taysom Hill and look at his body of work (or lack thereof) at quarterback. Just looking strictly at numbers, there is no indication he can help a team win as a full-time signal-caller.

He has only completed six passes in his NFL career out of 13 total attempts. To say he is a franchise quarterback after only notching 119 yards in three seasons is ridiculous to say the least. And at 30 years old heading into the 2020 season, there is little room to believe he can improve to be an accurate passer.

There is no way Hill is a franchise quarterback in the NFL.
