Player Notes Pros

 

  • Absolute beast of a back who shows impressive contact balance, leg drive and power

  • Excellent quickness, when in congested areas able to power through & churn out yards

  • Surprisingly fast for 230lbs, great top end speed, able to pull away from defenders

  • Doesn't seem to have any issues with running with leverage despite his large frame

  • I'm really impressed in what he's able to do in the complimentary areas of the game

  • Effective in the pass game out of the backfield, in the slot as well as in the screen game

  • Shows burst & twitch to hit some home runs if he's able to get out into the open field

  • In his time at Memphis he was exposed to wide zone and power concepts alike

  • Taylor is a touchdown machine, he has incredible lower body strength & determination

  • Incredible size, speed, power combination to go along with NFL caliber frame

  • Excellent pass protector, not afraid to take a shot from rushers to keep his QB upright

 

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Times when he'll overrun pressing the line of scrimmage & work himself into a corner

  • Due to high frame, does have a difficult time really driving his cut leg into the ground

  • Nagging ankle injury kept him sidelined for significant periods of time in 2019

  • Will have to prove his quickness at the combine to not just be labelled a power back
