Taysom Hill is the most exciting player on BYU's roster. It doesn't matter if he is throwing the ball, or running it; whenever it's in his hands, you can expect fireworks.
Last season, he was an early Heisman Trophy contender. In four-plus games, he completed 66.7 percent of his passes, throwing for 975 yards with seven touchdowns and three interceptions, adding 460 rushing yards and eight touchdowns.

“With Hill healthy, BYU should be a much better team this fall — or at least a far more interesting team to watch with Hill under center. He’s that good,” said Campus Insider's Rich Cirminiello, who has ranked Hill the No. 1 Heisman sleeper in college football for 2015.
A lot is expected of Hill this year. If he can stay healthy, there's a chance he might find himself sitting in New York with the best of the best come season's end.
