Pros:

– Power
– Speed
– Size

Cons:

– Ball security
– Heavy workload
– Outside zone rushing

Summary:

Taylor is a first round lock. His size, speed and power are arguably the best skill set amongst running backs in this class. He is solid in pass protection as well as catching the ball out of the backfield. Taylor has struggled with ball security at times. The major concern is how much tread is left on the tires with over 650 touches in three years.
