49ers’ Trent Taylor makes big impact as receiver

SANTA CLARA — How do little guys survive and flourish in a giants’ league?

Meet Trent Taylor. At 5 feet 7 inches, he’s the 49ers’ shortest player. He’s not a starter on the offense, but he plays a crucial role — slot receiver. On third downs, he’s the little guy who lines up in the middle of the field between the outside receiver and the offensive line, and he’s the guy who often makes the crucial catch. Through four games, he has caught 11 passes — more than every other player on the 49ers except Pierre Garcon.

  1. Love this

    instead of running out of bounds, turned up field and ran over defensive back Tyrann Mathieu. “I wanted to let him know that I was going to be here, that I’m not going to shy away from anything. So, first chance I got to stick it to him, I went for it.

    1. Wait! But Seb said receivers should just fall down after catching the ball! This Taylor guy better get with the program!
      What kind of wussie would dream up stuff like that? smh

    1. It didn’t at first. And the whole Sports section wasn’t working either. But if you went to Twitter, you could use Grant’s Twitter link which got you right to the page.

      Nice article. The guy clearly, like the Grinch after his epiphany, has balls three times too large…

  2. Nice. Now, hopefully, they will stop calling those rub routes, because Taylor’s OPI may have cost them the game.
    Taylor’s OPI in the Rams game did not cost them the game because I do not think he committed an OPI.

  3. Yeah ,the ghost call from nowhere. Agree he is a good draft pick. And is playing well . Drops . Only complaint .

    Hope he holds up physically.
