Draft 2016

Pick No.211

Selected By: San Francisco 49ers

Round: 6

Pick (Overall): 36 (211)

Pick Analysis: Talk about football genes ... this Gator followed in the steps of his father Fred Taylor, one of the most productive running backs in Florida and NFL history. It was not surprising that he become the Florida high school record-holder in rushing yards, accumulating 12,121 yards and 191 touchdowns in five years on the varsity squad (yes, he played as an eighth grader). The 2012 Lou Groza High School Player of the Year joined his father in winning the award, becoming the first family duo to do so. Taylor showed glimpses of that talent in a Freshman All-SEC season in 2013 (508 rush yards, four TD) and a sophomore season without a ton of opportunities (565 yards, six TD on 116 carries). He finally became "the man" for the Gators, getting 259 totes and covering 1,035 yards and scoring 13 times while also catching 17 passes for 150 yards. He might not be drafted in the first round, like his father was in 1998 by Jacksonville (ninth overall pick), but Taylor has an NFL future.
