Zane Taylor
Position: C
Class:  5Sr
School: Utah
Conference: Mountain West
HT: 6-2.5
WT: 309
40 Time: 5.52
Biography: Three-year starter at center awarded all-Conference honors the past two years.

Positives: "Explosive position blocker who plays with solid fundamentals. Bends his knees, gets leverage on opponents, and keeps his feet moving throughout the action. Fires off the snap, quickly gets his hands into defenders, and stays square. Gets positioning on opponents and seals them from the action. Displays good awareness and vision and effectively quarterbacks the offensive line. Solid with the shotgun snaps."

Negatives: Really does not get much movement at the point of attack as a run blocker. Lacks a dominant base.

Analysis: Taylor is a big center who comes with limited athleticism and marginal upside. He possesses the underlying skills to make a roster at the next level if he improves his run blocking.

Projection: 5-6
