Taylor was drafted in Round 6 with the 180th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens. He orchestrated the game winning touchdown drive in preseason week 3. He hit Brandon Jones for a 9 yard touchdown pass with 37 seconds remaining. He served as the backup quarterback behind Joe Flacco.
From Atlanta, in his 1st career start (exhibition preseason week 4), Tyrod Taylor left the Ravens’ exhibition finale with a shoulder bruise Thursday night, potentially putting a crimp in the team's quarterback plans. Early tests revealed no separation and the rookie's injury was characterized as a contusion.
Taylor had his first regular season playing time on December 4, 2011 in a victory against the Cleveland Browns. He had one rush for a two yard gain. He would appear as well on December 18 and throw his first ever regular season pass, a completion for 18 yards. He also lined up as a wide receiver for one play against the Indianapolis Colts.
On December 30, 2012 in Week 17 of the 2012 NFL season against the Cincinnati Bengals, Flacco was rested during the 4th quarter, offering Taylor decent playing time. During the 4th quarter of that game, Taylor would score his 1st career touchdown on a 1 yard QB bootleg. However, Taylor also threw a crucial interception to Carlos Dunlap that would be returned for a touchdown. The Ravens would lose the game against the Bengals 23-17. Taylor got his first championship title as the Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII over the 49ers.

“There, through the broken branches, go
The ravens of unresting thought;
Flying, crying, to and fro,
Cruel claw and hungry throat,
Or else they stand and sniff the wind....”
