An NFL player’s performance during training camp is not always a reliable predictor of how he will play in the regular season, so the commentariat usually pays little attention. Still, some things are impossible to ignore, and one of them was Denver Broncos wide receiver Jordan Taylor’s recent one-handed catch.
Taylor’s catch put Odell Beckham Jr. to shame. After turning his body quickly to his left to adjust to the football, and with a defender draped all over him, Taylor, whom the Broncos signed as an undrafted free agent out of Rice University last year and who is nicknamed “Sunshine,” twisted his right arm back and over his head to haul in the pass.
If Taylor wasn’t yet prominent on the team’s radar, this type of catch will make him impossible to ignore moving forward.
