#14. Buffalo Bills: Tyrod Taylor & LeSean McCoy
Here’s the list of quarterbacks to play for Buffalo from 2013 to 2014: EJ Manuel, Thad Lewis, Jeff Tuel and Kyle Orton. It’s not the most exciting list, which is why Taylor’s breakout 2015 brings about so much promise. He received the 10th-highest grade from PFF and showed off his dual-threat skills all season. Taylor threw for 3,035 yards with 20 touchdowns and six interceptions to go along with his 568 rushing yards and four scores. After spending four seasons as a little-used backup in Baltimore, the 26-year-old has finally found a place to thrive.
As encouraging as Taylor’s emergence was McCoy’s struggles leveled out that positive momentum. The former Eagle posted an underwhelming 895 rushing yards with just three touchdowns. In less than half the snaps played, teammate Karlos Williams earned a much higher PFF grade (8.3 vs. 3.3) than McCoy, which tells a lot about how poorly the big-name acquisition’s debut year went.
