BIO: Former Notre Dame transfer who led the Aggies in receiving two of the past three seasons. Totaled 25/456/4 as a senior in only six games after suffering a season-ending injury to his right knee against Nebraska. Junior totals included 44/760/3, though he missed two games with a different knee injury. Sophomore numbers were 39/489/3.
POSITIVES: Strong, impressive looking receiver best as an underneath target. Quickly releases off the line physically beating defenders and wins out battling to make the tough reception. Displays solid eye/hand coordination and snatches the pass out of the air with strong hands. Keeps the play in bounds running after the reception and breaks tackles to pick up positive yardage. Reaches back to pull the errant throw from the air and always works to make himself an available target. Physical blocker that does a terrific job sealing the lanes for running backs.
NEGATIVES: Marginal route runner that does not display much quickness into breaks. Lacks the deep speed and not winning many foot races. Prior knee injuries will throw up red flags.
ANALYSIS: Both smart and athletic, Taylor has the physical skills to be a productive complementary receiver for an NFL team. Durability and the health of his knee will dictate the course of his future.
