.... I can see him possibly lasting that long for me and he may be better than the other options that are left at that time ... I pick #1 and #20 on the way back so i.e. Westy, J. Lew, JJ, KJ etc.
the only way I wouldn't take Taylor as a #2 is if I could get Dunn, then I take Dunn over Taylor.
If I got myself a top noth WR in the 2nd, maybe even one in the 3rd too, absolutely I'd make Chester my #2 RB.
C-Taylor has Foster beat in just about every facet.
1) Competition. C-Taylor was brought in to be the #1 guy, and considering his stiffest competitor, Moore, has gone down the depth charts, its looking like smooth sailing. Foster on the other hand, has a 1st round pick and eventual replacement breathing down his back.
2) Reliability. Foster is injury prone, one of the worst. C-Taylor hasn't shown any injury proneness yet.
3) Importance. Foster is not the focal point of his offense. Likely to try and keep him from injury he'll be in RBBC, but Steve Smith is clearly the focal point. C-Taylor is the only guy Minnesota can make the focal point. Marcus Robinson, Travis Taylor, and Troy Williamson won't frighten defenses. Wiggins is good and reliable with catches, but no Gates or Gonzo. And whoever is under center won't be that dominating.
The only negative on Taylor, he's never been the featured RB before. However, one could argue, neither has Foster.
