BetOnline place Taylor’s over/under for total rushing yards this season at 2,000. Surpassing that amount isn’t simple, he was the only participant in the nation which rushed for over 2,000 yards in a season between 2014 and 2017 and did it.
The past year’s starting quarterback Alex Hornibrook moved to Florida State, which will be addition by subtraction due to their game although the Wisconsin offensive line will be solid.
The real weakness in Taylor’s match is that his receiving skills. Taylor has only 16 catches in 27 career games however that overall ought to go up since Jack Coan and Graham Mertz are both better quarterbacks compared to Alex Hornibrook and he’s been focusing on improving his catching ability this offseason.
Taylor catches will go up this season, because it can help him skip his senior season and go into the 2020 NFL Draft getting a threat in the game issues to him and together that number he will run less often. I’m carrying Taylor to finish with under 2,000 rushing yards this year.
