Tyrod Taylor: Why He Deserves a Legitimate Shot at Being an NFL QB

Now before I start this off, I'd like to make one thing clear: by no means am I saying or implying that Tyrod Taylor should replace Joe Flacco as the Ravens' starting quarterback.

Personally, I feel that Taylor  was the most underrated QB in this year’s draft class.  The biggest knock on Taylor was (and still is) his height.   At  6’1 and 217lbs (give or take), Taylor is considered small compared to the prototypical NFL QB.

I've watched Taylor play for the last four years, and he has excelled in every aspect ofplaying quarterback for Virginia Tech. The one thing holding him back is the one thing that he can do nothing about: his height.

The argument against having a short QB is that they have a hard time seeing over the offensive line. I would like to point out, however, that there have been plenty of successful "short" QBs throughout the history of the NFL, Doug Flutie, Frank Tarkenton, Drew Brees, and Joe Theisman, to name a few.

Here some of the reasons why I think Tyrod Taylor deserves a legitimate shot at being an NFL quarterback.
