Jonathan Taylor Player Overview

What You Need To Know:

  • Taylor combines elite production and athleticism with ideal size.
  • The Colts invested a Round 2 pick in him. He’ll have every chance to capture a lead role.
  • While receiving upside is a question mark, Taylor should post efficient totals behind a top-tier O-line.


Path to the pros

Taylor went from South Jersey offensive player of the year as a high school senior in 2016 to Doak Walker award finalist as a true freshman for the Wisconsin Badgers. His 1,977 rushing yards led the Big Ten and ranked 3rd nationally behind only Rashaad Penny and Bryce Love.

Taylor followed his big debut with an even bigger encore. He took home the Doak Walker Award as the nation’s top RB in 2018, delivering the 2nd most single-season rushing yards in school history (and most in FBS for the season). Taylor racked up the 3rd-largest 2-year rushing total to start a career in NCAA history, trailing only fellow Badger Melvin Gordon and former Iowa State stud (but NFL dud) Troy Davis.

He snatched a 2nd straight Doak Walker Award last season, plus 1st-team everything, etc. Taylor’s 2,003 rushing yards made him the 2nd player (after Davis) to go 2,000+ in consecutive seasons. And before that football season began, Taylor showed off his speed by joining the Wisconsin track team for the Penn Relays and Big Ten Championship meet. As a high-schooler, Taylor won 2 New Jersey state titles in the 100-meter dash.

That track speed, of course, showed up at the Combine with the position’s best 40 time. Taylor also posted just the 4th sub-4.40 time among all RBs over the past 6 years.


Colts turn in the card

Indy selected Taylor in Round 2 as the 3rd RB off the board. He easily could have been RB1 based on his overall profile. Perhaps, though, a perceived lack of receiving value hurt him. Taylor caught 8, 8 and 26 passes across his 3 college seasons. He also fumbled 18 times.

As for the receiving stuff —…
