2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The Cardinals' fifth-round draft pick, Taylor is Stanford's career-leader in rushing yards (4,300) and total touchdowns (45). Taylor is not a bruising back, but at 5-9, 214, he's not small, either, and his quick feet and perpetually churning legs allow him to evade and drive through defenders when going between the tackles. The Arizona backfield is crowded with former Steelers workhorse Rashard Mendenhall, the likely starter, Ryan Williams, and fellow rookie Andre Ellington, but Taylor has promise as the first skill player drafted in the Bruce Arians era. Moreover, Mendenhall and Williams carry durability questions, making Taylor an intriguing prospect, even if he enters the season third on the depth chart.
