Wisconsin fans were expecting nothing less than greatness from Badger legend Jonathan Taylor’s NFL career. In year one with the Indianapolis Colts, he delivered a 1,000-yard season as a rookie including 253 rushing yards in Week 17 vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Taylor averaged 5 yards per carry as he racked up 1,169 rushing yards during his rookie campaign. He also found the end zone 11 times, including 7 times over his final four games. The end of the year saw the former Badger coming into his own as a lead NFL back, and that progress has continued into his sophomore season training camp.
