BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter at left tackle. Awarded All-Conference honors every year.
POSITIVES: Athletic and durable college tackle who may be best on the inside. Blocks with good leverage, keeps his feet moving and can slide out in pass protection. Makes good use of angles, is patient and shows the ability to adjust.
NEGATIVES: Not strong at the point of attack, gets pushed aside by large defenders and rarely gets movement from run blocks.
ANALYSIS: A competitive blocker who.s been very productive on the college level, Taylor has definite possibilities in a zone-blocking scheme. Needs to add bulk to his frame and significantly improve his playing strength, yet is worth the investment of a middle-round pick.
