BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who totaled 43/2/1 as a senior after junior numbers of 54/3/6.

POSITIVES: "Athletic defensive back who looks the part, yet rarely plays to hit. Imposing in centerfield, flashes on the scene and displays an excellent burst of speed. Moves well laterally, aggressive, and physically beats down opponents. Covers a large amount of area on the field and flashes on the scene, playing with a large degree of suddenness."

NEGATIVES: "Inefficient and consistently takes incorrect angles to the action. Slow reacting to the pass, possesses marginal ball skills, and consistently a half step late arriving on the scene in coverage."

ANALYSIS: "Taylor is an impressive looking athlete, with the physical skills to play at the next level. His football abilities do not match his reputation, as he's more athlete than player. He offers a good degree of upside, and he could be brought onto a team as an eighth defensive back/special teams player."

PROJECTION: Fourth/Fifth Round
