The Taywan Taylor Thread

Great thread. Ive argued with some people on here saying that taywan gets open downfield with ease. Problem is him dropping it or Mariota overthrowing him.

He is great at getting open deep but has a small catch radius and wont win may contested balls but as the fourth option now he is more then adequate. He just isn't the guy you would look to first to just make a first down catch but if you need a third and long play he is your guy.

Does he really need to be great at contested catches when CBs can hardly contest him in coverage?

He doesn’t have to be great at it...but those plays will happen every now and then, and he’s gotta be able to finish.  Right now, he’s batting right around .000 on contested plays. 

 

But on the bright side...he can only get better in those situations.   Nowhere to go but up.

He got one on Ramsey.  So that counts for something.

I was probably too hard on the 2nd year player. If he can improve his concentration and being in the right spot in his 3rd year, he could be a good player.

I've been hard on Taylor probably because i didn't like the pick but he definitely has some ability and I hope he works out for us.

Sure, it counts....but it’s a matter of consistency.    

 

Not that anyone expects an 80% catch rate in contested situations...but if he can get to where he’s getting inside leverage and winning the battle maybe 5 out of 10 times, that’s a huge improvement over doing it once or twice in 10-15 opportunities. 

 

I like his potential and I fully expect he’ll continue improving and be more reliable and more productive in year 3.  He’s just not there yet.
