Overview A vastly underrated talent with exceptional athletic ability, Price toiled for a team that never established a passing attack, yet professional scouts hold him in high esteem..
The 2009 Bobcats ranked just 106th in the nation in total offense (310.14 yards per game), and 82nd in passing (198.14 yards per game), but Price has still managed to produce 28.26 percent of the team's passing yards. He is a strong, physical runner with excellent field vision and a team-first work ethic making him an inviting prospect for NFL teams utilizing the "Wildcat" formation.
One of only two Mid-American Conference players to receive Fred Biletnikoff Award consideration (given to the nation's top receiver), Price has also entered his name to the school's record books. His fourteen touchdown catches rank second in school history and his three scoring grabs vs. Akron in 2008 tied the Bobcats game-record. He also holds the school all-time record with 149 receptions, as his 51 catches in 2008 was the fourth-best season total in Ohio University annals. That season total was aided by his school game-record fourteen grabs vs. Wyoming.
At Hilliard Darby High School, Price lettered three times in football, playing alongside fellow Bobcat, Adam Olsheski. As a junior, he received All-Ohio Capital Central League second-team honors and was an All-District I honorable mention as a senior. He competed on both sides of the ball, catching 30 passes for 400 yards while collecting 52 tackles with two interceptions. As a junior, he also excelled on special teams, blocking five kicks that season. In addition to his three letters in football, he added another one on the baseball team.
The 184-pounder arrived on Ohio University's campus in 2006, battling his way up the depth chart (seventh entering fall camp) at the "Z" (split end) receiver position to start one of the fourteen games he appeared in. He gained 77 yards on nine receptions while also seeing action on special teams. He added 26 yards on five punt returns (5.2-yard average), along with a 23-yard kickoff return.
As a sophomore, Price won a heated battle for the "X" (flanker) position in fall camp, taking over that split after the graduation of All-Mid American Conference standout, Scott Mayle. He justified the coaches' faith in him, ranking second on the team with 32 receptions for 464 yards (14.06-yard average) and four touchdowns. He averaged 19.1 yards on seven kickoff returns and 3.8 yards on six carries. He also showed off his strong throwing arm, completing both pass attempts for 50 yards, including a touchdown.
Price led the team with 51 receptions, the fourth-highest season total by a Bobcat. His 694 aerial yards rank sixth and his five touchdown grabs rank tied for seventh on the school's annual record chart. He also tied the Ohio game-record with three scoring catches vs. Akron, the first Bobcat to accomplish that feat since 1972.
In 2009, Price arrived at fall camp with an impressive 20 additional pounds of muscle on his frame. He again led the squad with a career-high 56 receptions for 784 yards (14.0-yard average) and five scores during his final season. He also rushed 11 times, picking up 103 yards (9.4-yard average) in the process to guide the team to a berth in the Little Caesar's Pizza Bowl.
Analysis Release: Good quickness off the line and separates from corners down the sideline if left unchecked using his exceptional speed. Can use his hands to get off press coverage and use a hesitation move to freeze corners before getting into his route.
Hands: Reliable receiver who extends to able to catch the ball away from his frame. Adjusts to high, low, and wide throws well, and can make the exceptional catch. Brings in passes over either shoulder, even when contested. Excellent body control over the middle and on the sidelines.
Route running: Sharp and sudden route-runner; sinks his hips and accelerates out of the cut. Solid comebacks and outs, presses corner and stops quickly to complete the route. Sells routes on the run with foot work and body language to get corner off balance. Must work harder to get open when his quarterback is in trouble.
After the catch: Agile with the ball in his hands, can make the corner miss on quick out. Often gets additional yardage despite having to adjust to poor throws. Accelerates quickly after the catch; north-south runner. Sets up safeties in space with head fake and shifty hips. Changes ball to outside hand when feeling pressure from the inside.
Blocking: Needs work here, must put more effort into reaching a target and come with more aggression when he finds one. Has the size to be successful, and flashes willingness to mix it up downfield to help teammates on the run.
Intangibles: Unselfish player. No major character issues. Quiet on the field, lets his play do the talking.

I am all for bringing him in if Damian Williams and Brandon LaFell are off the board when we pick in the third

I'm not sure I draft a WR at all unless it's Bryant/Benn/Thomas until my 6th round picks barring a trade until the 5th.

i like him more than damian williams and brandon lafell...and i'm trying to decide if i like him more than bebe

Yeah, he's up there with Pierre-Paul, Iupati and maybe Ducasse as the fastest risers through the process. All the credit in the world goes to CK for calling this one early and even getting a scouting video out there back in January.

Nice work indeed.

I'd add Golden Tate to that list.

I'm just sayin, Tate belongs in that group of WRs. Not saying you have to feel that way. But watch this video and tell me what you don't like about Tate.

that's just kinda my thought...i don't know if you'll find that anywhere else...lol

well i think slimm and i both like taylor price more than d thomas...at least it's something we're considering...

i see burst and explosion with taylor price i like his 10 yard split which was 2nd fastest of any wr at the combine and i think he can get open down the field...not bad size either...he's sudden to me...

but he's not a finished product by any means...

Thank you, I appreciate it.

One quick correction though...I put this YouTube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIOwxj0oh6Q) of him up back on December 1st of 2009. So, it was even before January. :)

Much as I like Taylor Price, he's basically a feistier Johnny Knox without the catch radius. He could be "top 5" as you say, but only because there's a very significant dropoff from Dez Bryant, Demaryius Thomas, Arrelious Benn and Golden Tate...to the next group.

I've personally toyed with having Chris McGaha as that #5 rated player. And yet he's rated a 7th rounder by NFL Draft Scout. Tells you how clustered and generally imperfect that group is after those top 4.

Yup, add Tate to my list. Didn't mean to omit him. After that, wait for a McGaha, White, Long etc.

am i the only one that thought that long was way too upright running his routes at the combine...i didn't see him drop his hips at all...

mcgaha....hmmmm....

hey ck...while you're on here...who do you prefer thaddeus gibson or kao misi???

i have them both rated pretty closely together...i'm thinking misi but gibson might be the more effective pass rusher

I stand corrected.
