The Arizona Cardinals selected Stanford running back Stepfan Taylor with their fifth-round (No. 140) pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Taylor, the team's first offensive skill player taken in the draft, rushed for 1,530 yards and 13 touchdowns during the 2012 season. During his career in Palo Alto, he also set the school's rushing record with 4,300 yards.

"It's the perfect situation for me," Taylor said in a conference call Saturday. "I'm ready to go in and work."

A three-year starter at Stanford, Taylor amassed 97 receptions and 45 touchdowns in his collegiate career.

The Cardinal tailback appeared in three BCS games and was named the Offensive MVP at the 2013 Rose Bowl.

"I feel like I'm a complete back," said Taylor. "I run the ball, pass protect and catch the ball, have vision, patience and just know the game."

When asked what his weaknesses were, Taylor said "everything" and vowed to get better in every aspect of his game.
