QB TJ “Taylor” Yates


Texans, 5th round. N. Car.: Above-average size. Below-average speed and explosiveness. Average quickness. 3/4 release. Below-average on timing routes. Slightly inaccurate. Average speed. Consistently poor decisions outside of pocket — threw across body in 2010 bowl game as well as in NFLPA Game for an INT in the red zone.  Not a natural runner. Throws fairly accurately on run. Below-average mechanics — throws falling backwards but also gets set up quickly. In NFLPA Game practices, made better decisions and didn’t force passes and showed good anticipation on timing routes. Has nice velocity when his mechanics are on, but that’s seldom the case. Drew defense offsides 4 times at NFLPA Game. At NFL Combine. Should be team’s QB3 and has eventual QB2 potential, but never a fantasy starter.
