2008 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Nick Hill, QB, Southern Illinois

Hill originally attended Western Kentucky University on a basketball scholarship, but transferred to Southern Illinois University in 2004. He appeared in four games in 2005, mainly on mop up duties, throwing only 20 passes (completing 12 for 288 yards and three TDs). He also rushed for 102 yards on nine carries. Hill became SIU's starting quarterback in 2006, starting all of the school's thirteen games and throwing for 1,721 yards on 196 attempts. He completed 121 of those for a competition percentage of 61.7, with 15 TDs and 4 interceptions. He also rushed for 382 yards and six TDs on 91 carries. Again, Hill started all of SIU's 14 games in 2007, recording his best season as a passer. He threw for 3,175 yards, while completing 258 of 361 passed attempted for an impressive 71.5 competition percentage. He threw for 28 TDs and seven INTs and was invited to the Texas vs. The Nation All Star Classic. Hill has a good quarterback frame. He is very accurate in the short-to-medium range area and is not afraid of taking off when the protection breakdowns. Hill has a real passion for the game. Although, his arm strength is below average and he has poor passing mechanics. His footwork needs a lot of correction. Hill does not posses any significant QB trait and is very limited athletically. Hill was regarded at best as a free agent prospect when the season began. He showed a lot of improvement during the season, but continued to struggle (mostly because of poor arm strength) at the Classic. Nevertheless, Hill is a very accurate passer. He is the type of QB that usually finds a way to hang onto a third string job for quite a while. It would not be surprising if he made a roster, but should be drafted late in the seventh round of the draft. Hill could really be something if he is allowed to develop for a few years.
