His hands were shaky throughout the entire regular season and I always felt more comfortable when the ball was going to Darrell Jackson.
You're probably more qualified to speak on Travis Taylor than I am. I just remember when Baltimore selected him on Draft Day, the ESPN guys raving about how great Taylor was. This and the early pick led me to believe he was a superstar. (not much of a college fan myself)
My hands comment referred to several impressive catches I recall off the top of my head when Jeff Blake was throwing to him. Not that the balls were thrown bad, it just seemed like the guy made tough catches on the regular.
Honestly, I'd take your words to heart before my own on Taylor.
