600 yards rushing, 6.2 yards a carry. Scored 11 touchdowns & added 9 receptions for 109 yards. 1 fumble
-Faces a lot of young hungry competition at runningback and all over the offense.
-Tough defensive division
-Second fastest back only to Richardson. Plays more physical and he has pass catching ability that will get him involved more.
-4 carries for 20 yards in first preseason game. Had a 26 yard return.
Stepfan Taylor – Arizona Cardinals
– Stanford university record for yards rushing (4,300) and touchdowns (45)
