Terrance Taylor DT 6' 319 Michigan

By: Robert Davis

Taylor saw the field as a true freshman in a reserve role, but could only muster one tackle for the season. He became a starter as a sophomore, delivering 23 tackles, five for loss, and a sack for the Wolverines. As a junior, Taylor had a big season. He finished the year with 55 tackles, 8.5 for loss, and 3.5 sacks on the season.

Strengths

Taylor is a classic nose tackle. He is built low to the ground with a wide base, and is very difficult to move off the line of scrimmage. His thick build and natural strength allow him to hold his ground and clog running lanes. Taylor does supply some penetration ability because he does have some quickness. He comes off the snap quick, and once he is moving upfield he is difficult to stop because of his power and momentum he has built up.

Weaknesses

Although he has some quickness to slip into the backfield, Taylor is strictly a run stopper in the NFL. He will only fit teams that are looking for a nose tackle. His size suits him well at that spot but should limit him in any other role.

Future

Taylor is a very good run stopper and is going to make some team happy in April. He should be one of the top nose tackles available, and could hear his name called in the third round and provide a run stuffing boost to his new team.
