    Production, Smarts, and Size--Meet QB Tim Hiller

    3. Tim Hiller, QB, Western Michigan -- A four-year starter in college, Hiller didn't follow up his fantastic junior season with more of the same as a senior, and that has sent his stock plummeting since the fall. But he also wasn't playing with a lot of talent around him in 2009, and scouts do give him high marks for his size (6-4, 229), brains (4.0 GPA) and experience playing under center in a pro-style offense. Hiller was invited to and worked out at the combine, and played in the Texas versus the Nation all-star game.

    Smuckers, Bobby Knight, and Tim Hiller? How can you go wrong??

    I think this kid could be a big time find for someone.

    Smuckers, Bobby Knight, and Tim Hiller? How can you go wrong?? He would be required to take the recently implemented CDTGA (Co-ed- Dope-Twitter-Gold digging bar wench- Aversion) exam before consideration. Typical questions might be,” Do you find anything inherently wrong with canceling a gun in your sweat pants? “How about in your carry-on airline bag?” “Do you think before you twitter?” “Do you think at all?”

    I think this kid could be a big time find for someone.

    From what I am reading...seems like a smart kid who makes good decisions. But, probably doesn't excel in any one part of his game. Not known for his arm or accuracy. Sounds like a career second stringer.

    True...but these are also the same things they said about a Michigan QB who was drafted in the 6th round.

    You may be onto something here. If we draft enough of these QBs known for average arm and average accuracy...we should find the next Brady! Dee...you are a genius!
