Tyrod Taylor named among 5 of the most underrated QBs in the NFL

Tyrod Taylor named as one of the NFL's most underrated QBs

Unlike last year, everyone knows that Tyrod Taylor will be Buffalo's starting quarterback in 2016. In his first season as the starting QB of the Buffalo Bills, Taylor passed for 3,035 yards and rushed for 568 yards while racking up 24 total touchdowns. The quarterback threw one of the best deep balls in the league and finished the year with the seventh best QB rating (99.4) in the league.

No one will be sleeping on Taylor this year, but Cameron DaSilva of FOX Sports believes that the QB is still one of the five most underrated quarterbacks in the NFL. DaSilva said the following on Taylor:

There are areas of his game that need to improve: going through his progressions, performing late in games, holding onto the football. But those are aspects that will improve as he gains experience. Remember, last season was his first as a full-time starter. He had never started a single NFL game prior to then. What also makes him so underrated is that he put up strong numbers with a not-so-great supporting cast. 

Sammy Watkins missed three games, and the team's second-best receiver was Robert Woods, who was mainly used as a blocker with Watkins on the field. LeSean McCoy also missed four games. Taylor had a mediocre group of receivers to throw to, and it'll be even thinner in 2016 with Chris Hogan's departure. He'll prove to be a valuable asset and an underrated player next season.

The other quarterbacks mentioned along with Taylor were Alex Smith, Teddy Bridgewater, Andy Dalton, and Kirk Cousins.
