NFL Draft Analyst Mike Mayock Discussed Taysom Hill During 2018 Draft Broadcast
While speculating on the possibilities for the New Orleans Saints at No. 14, BYU great Taysom Hill was mentioned.
The Quarterback of the future in the big easy?
During the 2018 NFL Draft broadcast on FOX & the NFL Network, Draft analyst Mike Mayock was discussing the possibilities of who the New Orleans Saints would select with the No. 14 selection. The Saints traded up with the Packers to select at the 14th spot and there was a feeling they would select quarterback Lamar Jackson out of Louisville.
Mike Mayock then mentioned Taysom Hill and Jackson as “quarterbacks of the future” for the Saints after Drew Brees retires.
This just another example of analysts hearing buzz around the Saints organization surrounding Taysom Hill.
The Saints ultimately selected UTSA defensive end Marcus Davenport with the 14th selection, meaning that maybe the Saints heir apparent to Brees is truly in the building in the Big Easy, and it’s former BYU great Taysom Hill.
