Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Jeff Wilson Miami Dolphins

Productive high school back who had strong junior and senior campaigns. Played more slot as a sophomore then moved back to tailback for his last two seasons. Also has a wrestling background and the same strength and balance needed to be successful on the mat, he shows in the run game. Gets going north-south, finds lanes and hits them with good burst. Does not hesitate or try to dance too much. When he needs to, he has some wiggle and ability to make defenders miss. Experience as a receiver also allows him to be effective catching the ball. Runs tough and runs bigger than his listed size. No verified timed speed but broke long runs as a senior. Measureables are not eye-popping, but solid all around. Hard to see him not being a productive college back based on the way he runs and his ability to catch the ball also.

Athletic Background

Darius Taylor is a 5-11, 202-pound Running Back from Walled Lake, MI.
