Taylor was highly productive at Louisiana Tech, where he had 327 catches, for 4179 receiving yards, and 32 receiving touchdowns. He was clearly the go-to receiver, he is sure handed, he has good speed, he is also a great pass catcher, and he is very experienced. He is also an offensive playmaker, and he is a good route runner. On the downside, he is very undersized, and the production at Louisiana Tech could be seen as a negative to some, due to the level of competition he faced. With that said, Taylor should be an mid day 3 pick, likely somewhere in the 5th to 6th round range, and he should be a fantastic slot receiver at the next level.
