Taylor’s second season Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League (NFL) was nothing short of amazing in an age where the league continues to thrive through the air. Not only did Taylor’s 1,811 rushing yards lead the league by a whopping 552 yards, but the 23-year-old found the end zone more than any player in 2021 with 20 total touchdowns (18 rushing). His 360 receiving yards off 40 receptions also made Taylor the league’s scrimmage-yard leader, amounting to his first All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors.
Taylor was named the Colts backup running back to starter Marlon Mack at the start of the season. Taylor made his NFL debut in Week 1 of the 2020 season against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He had nine rushing attempts for 22 rushing yards and six receptions for 67 receiving yards in the 27–20 loss.
Taylor was named the starting running back for the Colts to start the 2021 season. He had 103 yards and a rushing touchdown on 16 rushing attempts in Week 4 victory against the Miami Dolphins. The following week, Taylor had 169 total scrimmage yards: 53 yards rushing with a touchdown, and 116 yards receiving with a 76-yard receiving touchdown in the 31–25 overtime loss against the Baltimore Ravens.
Taylor opened his freshman year at Wisconsin in 2017 as one of the team’s starting running backs alongside Shaw and James. In his first career game against Utah State, he rushed for 87 yards over nine carries and a touchdown. In his second game, against Florida Atlantic, he rushed for 223 yards and three touchdowns. After Taylor ran for 249 yards against Nebraska in the fifth game of the season, he entered the Heisman Trophy conversation and was routinely listed among the top-five Heisman candidates.
Taylor was a unanimous preseason All-American heading into the 2019 season and was widely considered a preseason Heisman Trophy candidate. In Wisconsin’s opening game against South Florida, Taylor rushed for 135 yards and two touchdowns and added two touchdown receptions through the air.
Taylor entered the 2018 season as a consensus preseason All-American and was featured on watch lists for the Maxwell Award, the Doak Walker Award, and the Walter Camp Award. Taylor’s return, as well as those of many other key members of the 2017 Orange Bowl-winning Wisconsin team, led the Badgers to become ranked fourth in the preseason AP Poll, tied for the highest start in school history.
Taylor played high school football at Salem High School, where he set the New Jersey state rushing yards record. He played college football at Wisconsin, finishing his college career as the sixth all-time rusher in the NCAA and the first player in history to rush for more than 6,000 yards in any three-year span.
Taylor finished in the top ten of Heisman Trophy voting three times. Following each of the 2018 and 2019 seasons, he was named a unanimous first-team All-American and recipient of the Doak Walker Award, the award for the top running back in college football.
Leading the league with an astounding 50 10-plus-yard runs according to Next Gen Stats, Taylor’s big-play capability sets him apart from the rest; having the foresight to use his blockers efficiently, possessing the balance to break tackles and having the breakaway speed for those long gains. The breakout season from the young Colts star justly earns him the top running back ranking on the Top 100.
