4. Taywan Taylor, WR (3rd round 2017)
2017: 16 receptions, 231 yards, 1 TD
2018: 31 receptions, 466 yards, 1 TD
Taywan Taylor is a complete enigma to me and apparently to the Titans coaching staff. However, when he is on he is spectacular and provides Tennessee with a deep threat that they haven’t had in a long time.
His big plays against the New York Jets this year not only saved that game, but showed why even when he is quiet for a long stretch, he is poised for a big game every week.
He isn’t just a one trick pony, he is electric on screens and short routes and so many plays it has seemed like he was a half an inch away from breaking a long run.
Maybe in a new Titans offense with a coordinator who knows him, Taylor can find his niche on offense. If he is used as a motion receiver who can challenge a defense on every blade of grass then he can be a real threat.
Going forward, his role should be as a 15-25 snap per game player who relieves A.J. Brown or Adam Humphries in an effort to either distract a defense or to take advantage of something game planned for that week.
If that happens, not only will the passing game be a lot more potent in 2019, but all of the sudden the Titans would have the best group of wide receivers in franchise history.
