Next year, PFF sees Bills QB Tyrod Taylor making his way onto the list. In their article, 10 players poised to make their first Top 101 in 2016, PFF had the following to say about Taylor:
5. Tyrod Taylor, QB, Buffalo Bills
There was a lot to like about Tyrod Taylor’s first season as a starting quarterback. He finished 2015 with the 10th-best overall cumulative grade among QBs, and his rushing grade trailed only Cam Newton. Taylor played well under pressure last season (his 67 accuracy percentage while under pressure was ninth-best among QBs), and was 10th in deep-passing accuracy (throws traveling 20+ yards in the air). Taylor’s appearance on next year’s list is obviously dependent on health (he missed two games in 2015 with injuries, and top receiver Sammy Watkins missed or was limited in four), but his first year at the helm in Buffalo was certainly encouraging. — Billy Moy, @PFF_Billy
Key Stat: Taylor’s PFF QB rating of 93.18 ranked ninth in the league last season.
Bills fans would be thrilled to see their quarterback named among the best 101 players in the league following the 2016 season. Taylor's agent would also probably be very happy if this were the case. Buffalo's starting quarterback is entering the final year of his contract with the Bills and if Taylor has a strong sophomore season in Buffalo, the team will have to shell out a large contract to the QB.
