Dolphins doing due diligence on Jonathan Taylor

Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor earned plenty of attention at the Scouting Combine two weeks ago. And he now has gotten the attention of the Miami Dolphins.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that Dolphins running backs coach Eric Studesville spent time alone with Taylor on Tuesday, and that Studesville worked with Taylor on Wednesday, during the Wisconsin Pro Day workout.

Taylor, who weighs 226 pounds, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds. He also ran for more than 6,000 yards in only three college seasons.

The Dolphins currently have 14 draft picks in the coming selection process, including three first-rounders, five in the first 56 players taken, and six in the first 70.

  1. They would have to take him in the first, he will be gone at 35 if he makes it that far!

  2. Best RB in the draft and that was before his combine. I had Etienne ahead of him but he went back to Clemson.

  3. The guy has been the best RB in college for at least 2 seasons and maybe three. Not sure he was better than Saquon when he was a freshman but it was close.

  4. The Fumbling issue is pure BS. Look at the number of carries. He is an every down back that can block and catch. If he is gone by 26, D’Andre Swift is no slouch either. Swift is a better runner, but Taylor is more complete.

  5. OLine…OLine…OLine and nothing matters before that. Forget Tua…forget any running back and just build that OLine….DLine is next and then go after the others. Tired of these teams that fail to build teams correctly and then wonder why they never succeed.
