2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Tyrod Taylor, QB, Virginia Tech
Taylor turned into the face of the Hokies program by 2009. He was still a dangerous threat with his feet, but Taylor started to throw the ball much more often, completing 56.0 percent of his passes for 13 touchdowns. He also threw just five interceptions, a vast improvement over just one year prior. The numbers for his senior season were even more impressive as Taylor emerged as a better passer in just about every possible way. His completion percentage went up and in 315 pass attempts, he threw just five interceptions.
Whether Taylor ends up playing quarterback in the NFL is another question. His delivery is very poor and will not work at the next level. If any team wants him to be a quarterback, they will have a lot of work to do. However, Taylor is a decent enough passer who can fit into a wildcat scheme in certain situations. Since it is extremely unlikely that Taylor will ever be a full-time quarterback in the NFL, he is not worth a draft pick until the fifth or sixth round.
