Keith Taylor CB Washington Draft Profile

Carolina Panthers Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 5 - Pick Number: 166 (CAR)
Strengths
  • Flashes some physicality as a hitter.
  • Good hustle player who puts himself in the action when he's not directly involved. Knows how to use his height and vertical leap.
  • Extremely aggressive to come up and put his body in traffic to make tackles.
  • Tough and scrappy with forceful nature to be physical at all levels of the field. Has good bulk on his frame to be aggressive in run support.
  • Flashes intimidating attitude and will crush tiptoeing receivers across the middle.
  • Alert defender for zone coverage, showing good understanding of route progressions occurring behind him and a quick burst downhill to break on underneath passes in front of him.
  • Attacks the ball with authority, with quick read-and-react ability. Willing and physical tackler, flashes toughness and aggressive nature vs. the run.
Weaknesses
  • Lacks instincts with shaky awareness, is overaggressive and too often bites on fakes and misdirection.
  • Has a high backpedal and loses a step in transition. Plays with adequate speed but there are concerns about his ability to handle the truly explosive speedsters of the NFL.
  • Inconsistent getting off of blocks. Can be a step slow to react when a quarterback comes back to his side of the field late in progression.
