As early as high school, a Fred Taylor appearance on the gridiron started making waves, bringing the young running back All-League honors. Taylor then went on to star in college, rushing for two touchdowns during Florida’s 1996 game against Florida State, a famed season that brought the Gators the 1996 National Championship.
Drafted ninth overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 1998 NFL draft, Taylor became prone to injuries and many questioned his toughness. However, Taylor still rushed for over 10,000 yards in his career, making him the 21st player in NFL history to have such an accomplishment.
In 2007, after being overlooked because of his frequent injuries, Taylor had a string of impressive games and finished the season fifth in the AFC in rushing and led the AFC with a 5.4 average per rush. Taylor tied for first in the NFL with four rushes of 50-plus yards and finished with two of the four longest rushes in the NFL that season. He also ranked fourth in the league with 36 rushes of 10-plus yards.
In December of 2007, Taylor was named AFC Offensive Player of the Month for his accomplishments. In January 2008, he was named the 2008 FEDEX Ground Player of the Year. Taylor also participated in the 2008 Pro Bowl, where he became the first Jaguars offensive player to make the Pro Bowl since 2001.
