Pick (Overall): 8 (72)

Pick Analysis: Anyone unaware of Taylor's talent coming into the 2016 college football season found his skills quickly in the Hilltoppers' game against Alabama. He caught nine passes for 121 yards against the Tide's talented secondary, putting great film together for NFL scouts to review during the evaluation process. Taylor had a great senior year overall, receiving first-team All-Conference USA notice after catching 98 passes (tied for fifth in the FBS) for 1,730 yards (third) and 17 scores (tied for third). He had similar statistics in 2015, also earning a first-team all-conference nod with 86 receptions for 1,467 yards (third in FBS) and 17 touchdowns (second). The Louisville native with 2XL-sized receiving gloves was a seven-game starter in each of his first two seasons (24-270 in 2013; 45-767, seven TD in 2015) before becoming one of the nation's top targets.
