Tyrod Taylor is a guy who may be projected at many other positions but played quarterback in college and has stated multiple times that he wants to play quarterback at the next level but there are many teams that don't believe he projects to quarterback at the next level. I think a good team for him would be the Kansas City Chiefs behind Matt Cassel with Todd Haley, and Bill Muir coaching him. Cassel needs a solid back-up that can step in and play when needed and the team needs someone they can develop into a potential future replacement for Cassel who looked horrible in their only playoff game last season, and looked mediocre at best in 2009, and struggled to complete 60% of his passes in 2010. Taylor is a guy who can run Haley's offense and can be had for a late round pick this year due to questions about his height, and arm strength. However he is a natural leader, he has decent accuracy, and as the coaches at Virginia have said time and again this guy gives you a chance to win when he is on the field. No matter what position he plays. He could help the team as a runner used simlarly to Tim Tebow last season, or also as a reciever out of the backfield, and in wildcat formations as well. As he learned the rest of the playbook as a quarterback he could eventually work his way into the number 2 spot and higher. His athleticism should intrigue teams, especially when even Michael Vick is touting him as a solid quarterback in the NFL. Maybe Philly should snatch him up.
