EAST LANSING - Michigan State and Purdue are both in must-win situations heading into Saturday's game at Purdue. Spartan senior Trevor Anderson is focused on extending his final season as a Spartan. He knows that a win against the Boilermakers is mandatory.[details]
A limited athlete who's a bit of a statue in the pocket, Hiller lacks the ability to escape pressure and looks heavy-footed when trying to break containment. He lacks ideal awareness in the pocket, struggles to step up inside and has a tendency to drift from the play and roll away from pressure. He isn't effective on the move. He possesses a compact release and does a nice job stepping into throws and getting the ball on time. He isn't afraid to stare down the barrel of the shotgun and take the hit in the face of the blitz. Hiller makes a lot of pre-snap reads and can identify a defense and then find his second/third receivers. He displays good balance and footwork from under center and does a good job maintaining his balance and striding into throws when given time in the pocket.
