 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Pat Fitzgerald is one of Jonathan Taylor's biggest fans. In fact, Northwestern's coach said he feels Wisconsin's All-American running back is the best player in the country. "If I had a Heisman vote right now, he's getting my vote," Fitzgerald said. "He's playing outstanding, absolutely outstanding, football... JT's been a great player since the minute he walked into this league, and he's playing at as high of a level as any running back that I've seen in my time here." Fitzgerald and the Wildcats (1-2, 0-1 Big Ten) will look to slow down the 2018 Doak Walker Award winner when they face the eighth-ranked Badgers (3-0, 1-0) on Saturday.

Taylor was named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts against Michigan last week. Taylor scored twice and became the first Wisconsin player in history to rush for at least 200 yards (203) against the Wolverines. Taylor has rushed for at least 100 yards in 25 of his 30 career games. None of those 25 games were against the Wildcats, who are coming off a loss to Michigan State. Taylor has faced Northwestern twice in his career and has been held to a total of 126 yards on 30 carries, just 4.2 yards per carry and 63 per game. He had just 46 yards on 11 carries and two fumbles in a 31-17 loss on the road to the Wildcats last season. "Those guys play well off blocks," Taylor said of the Northwestern defenders. "They fill gaps really well and they play with length." - AP College Football
