NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock went for about two hours answering questions on a national conference call. When the subject of Tyrod Taylor came up and his future with the Bills, Mayock expressed the opinion that Taylor could be a capable contributor to a winning team.
“First and foremost I’m a Tyrod Taylor fan,” said Mayock. “I understand that the question here is more about cap dollars than it is about whether he’s a capable quarterback. We started out this conversation talking about the dearth of quarterbacks in the NFL. He’s a capable quarterback. Is he a franchise guy? No, I don’t believe so. But he doesn’t turn the football over, but when you complement him with a strong running game and a good defense it’s a winning formula.
“I kind of like the kid. I know Sean McDermott probably has to look at this guy and say, ‘Hey he doesn’t turn the ball over. If we play good defense we have a chance of being pretty good pretty quickly.'”
