Nobody has talked him up more than his coach, Sean Payton, comparing Hill to Steve Young and saying he is “like gold bullion.” If anything, the praise is said to be even more effusive inside the building. But Hill has attempted just 15 passes in his NFL career, including the playoffs. To put those numbers into context, the Broncos' Drew Lock attempted 156 as a rookie last season, and we still have no idea about his future. The Giants' Daniel Jones threw 459 passes, and we're not much wiser in his case.
