Stepfan Taylor

School: Stanford
Position: RB
Bio: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior after totaling career-best numbers of 302 carries/1442 yards/12 TDs on the ground and 38 receptions/270 yards/2 TDs as a pass catcher. Junior rushing totals included 242/1330/10 with pass-catching totals of 25/182/2. Posted 1137 yards rushing and 15 TDs as a sophomore.
Positive: Hard-charging interior ballcarrier with a terrific game. Instinctive, sees the field, and effectively follows blocks everywhere. Runs hard on the inside and drives his shoulders through defenders, falling forward for the extra yardage. Deceptively fast and displays the ability to beat defenders into the open field. Patient. Consistently runs north/south and keeps the play in bounds. Rarely brought down by the first defender. Strong in his lower body and forces a lot of missed tackles. Displays good short-area quickness with the ability to bounce around opponents and avoid piles. Effective blocker when called upon. Picks up blitzes. Effective pass blocker and handles linebackers on the second level when asked to run block.
Negative: Not an elusive ballcarrier and loses momentum when he must quickly change direction or cut back against the grain. Lacks the outright speed to turn the corner. Performed poorly at the combine.
Analysis: Taylor is a big ballcarrier with the ability to carry the load on the inside. He works to get as much yardage out of each handoff as possible and does the little things well. Taylor would be very effective in an offense that keeps him between the numbers.
