Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about JONATHAN TAYLOR: Wisconsin, 5102 226 4.34. Junior entry, three-year starter, Salem, NJ. Had one of the most prolific running back careers in NCAA history. Two-time winner of the Doak Walker Award. Two-time unanimous first-team All- America. The sixth all-time leading rusher in NCAA history with over 1,900 yards all three seasons, the only player to ever do that. He can open eyes with his production and straight line athleticism. There simply aren’t many humans who can move like he does at 220 pounds with running back-ability. Has had major fumble issues (18) over his career. Brings plenty of upside but a lot needs to be corrected. He wins the workouts. Possesses great long speed and lower body strength. Explosive straight line mover that plays strong. Will move north after contact. Runs behind his pads and can gain the tough yards inside. Has breakaway speed that will get away from defenders in the open field. A big play back. Consistently effective and productive. Sets his blockers up well in space and times his breaks well. Good inside vision, sticks with the plan and will find the crease. Good patience and ability to subtly change his plan on the fly. Ball security has always been an issue - 18 fumbles, 15 of which he has lost, since the start of 2017. Has some stiffness in his lower body. A fringe lateral mover. Lacks shake and will have a hard time missing defenders in the open field. Doesn’t make a lasting impact as a blocker. A one-blow kind of guy who needs to learn better footwork and hand placement. Not a natural receiver, a lot of double catches and bobbles. Over 960 touches in three seasons. 2019 stats: 2003 yds, 6.3 ypc, 21 TD, 26 rec, 252 yds, 9.7 ypr, 5 TD. OSR:1/33. Second/third round. (A-31 1/8, H-9 1/2, BP-17, SS-4.24).
