Former B1G RB in top 3 for most YAC yards per carry in the NFL this season
Just as it was at Wisconsin, NFL teams are having trouble bringing down Jonathan Taylor. He currently sits at No. 2 in yards after contact per carry with 3.9.
On top of that, he sits at 4th in the league in total yards. At every level, Taylor has been nothing but exceptional. Last year, he had 1,811 yards with 18 touchdowns, which were both NFL leaders, and 1,272 of those yards were after contact.
In his first two seasons, Taylor has reached the 1,000 yard threshold in both, and barring injury there is no reason that he won’t do the same this year.
In college, he reached 2,000 yards in 2 out of his 3 seasons with the Badgers, coming short by just 23 yards as a freshman. Taylor’s monster junior season saw him finish at No. 5 in Heisman candidacy where he had as many 200-yard games as sub-100-yard games with 4.
Taylor left the NCAA at No. 6 in all-time rushing yards and No. 2 all-time in the B1G.
Arthur Smith said this week that arm tackles aren’t going to bring down Nick Chubb on Sunday.
