Taysom Hill is the third-string quarterback for the New Orleans Saints, but Sean Payton has compared him to a Hall of Famer.

Payton compared Hill to fellow Brigham Young product Steve Young while speaking to the media his week.

"If you look back at Steve's career, people don’t remember the time before he came to the NFL, you have a very athletic player that, I think, advanced when he got to San Francisco," Payton said.

"He always had great ability with his legs, so you're trying to create visions for players, and that's no different than how you'd evaluate how we see Teddy Bridgewater progressing and what we think he can be. That's the business we're in."
