BIO: Posted 156/740/4 on the ground as a senior adding 15/49 catching the ball after becoming a full-time starter.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized ball carrier coming off a terrific senior campaign. Displays patience, quickly hits the hole and works to finish runs. Cuts back in a small area making defenders miss, keeps his feet moving on contact and runs through arm tackles. Improved his running vision, finds the open lanes or bounces it around tackles and avoids piles. Solid pass-catcher out of the backfield.
NEGATIVES: Not a fluid or smooth back and runs with an upright style. Times well in the 40 but looks like a one-speed back who cannot run to daylight.
ANALYSIS: Making major strides as a senior, Taylor could be one of the more undervalued backs in this draft. Possesses the size/speed/skill to play in the NFL yet must continue to polish his game and become a complete back.
