Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Is an explosive mover with quickness and speed. He’s at his best attacking downhill, shooting gaps in run support, and disrupting the backfield.
  • Has a solid frame with a strong lower body and much improved bulk. Fluid and rangy with the coordination and loose hips to quickly change directions.
  • Has quick feet and excellent change-of-direction ability, capable of mirroring quickness underneath.
  • Strong hands to make plays on the ball, effective blitzer who shows well-coached technique and awareness.
  • Great on route recognition and has click-and-close ability
  • Taylor tracks the ball well and does a nice job of getting his head around in plenty of time to avoid flags.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Tends to play conservatively and give too much cushion when playing off.
  • He’ll draw plenty of flags early on with his playing style. Taylor is hesitant when facing the action in zone coverage.
  • Plays out of control too often, laying a lot of big hits but also missing a lot of tackles along the way. Taylor also needs to do a better job reading routes when sitting back as a single-high safety.
