QB Search 2017: Player Profile Tyrod Taylor

*This is part three of a 10 part series where we will take a look at the Cleveland Browns options for the elusive quarterback of the future.

Name: Tyrod Taylor

Height: 6’1″

Weight: 215 pounds

Throws: Right

School: Virginia Tech

Draft Spot or Projection: 6th Round 180th overall (2011)

Strenghths: Taylor is accurate…shows good anticipation…excellent movement in the pocket…keeps his eyes upfield while navigating the blitz…above average arm strength…solid velocity…a great competitor who feeds off of others doubting his abilities…believes in his abilities 110%…leader…hard worker…gym rat…extremely smart…athletic…

Weaknesses: Lacks NFL size…gets a lot of balls batted down at the line, but did improve on that during his second season as a starter…can telegraph throws at times…may believe too much in his abilities at times and will force throws…

Summary: If the Bills decide to cut Taylor because they owe him at least $27.5 million, teams will likely be all over the former Bills and Ravens quarterback. While he isn’t a top 10 guy, he is good enough to lead a team into the playoffs, but will only get as far as the talent around him will allow him.

Up Next: North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky

Previously: Bengals QB AJ McCarron
