Scouting Report

Evaluated 08/09/2023

Brian Dohn National Recruiting Analyst

A high-level receiver who consistently makes plays, and makes difficult catches on a routine basis. Productive player with more than 100 receptions, 1,700 yards and 19 touchdowns during his sophomore and junior seasons. Two-way player has length and size to contend with bigger cornerbacks, and can easily play above smaller cornerbacks. Already has strength and will be able to play at 190 pounds in college. A very good route runner with excellent ball-tracking skills. During multiple in-person evaluations, Taylor impressed with his body control and reliable hands. Possesses field awareness and has body control and reliable hands to make plays near the boundary and toe tap to keep inbounds. Strong route runner who sets up defensive backs and can get inside for slant. Difficult to jam because of short space quickness. Uses body well to shield defenders. Excels in one-on-one situations and proficient at winning 50-50 balls. Adjusts body well when the ball is in the air and timing to beat defender to the ball is an asset. Is comfortable catching the ball in traffic. Knows how to work to get open when plays go off script. Top end speed is a question. Rarely runs away from defensive backs on deep balls. Has to continue to develop upper body strength to better contend with college defensive backs. Has NFL draft potential.
