Jordan Taylor never heard his name called on Draft Day in 2015. But the Denver Broncos liked the size and athleticism the former Rice Owl brought to the table and signed him as a priority free agent.
As a rookie, Taylor immediately began making 'wow' plays in training camp. It didn't translate to much production in the preseason but the Broncos still kept him around on the practice squad as a rookie.
Despite not being on the active roster, Taylor still found a way to make a huge impact on Denver's 2015 season. With Peyton Manning hobbled by a plantar fascia tear in his foot, he was benched in a Week 10 loss to Kansas City.
