Pos: 
Former backup who started nine games for Georgia in 2018 and finished with a career-best 52 tackles. Slightly undersized linebacker with a great head for the game. Quickly reads and diagnoses plays, takes proper angles to the action and shows a closing burst of speed. Plays discipline football, stays with assignments and does not bite on ball fakes. Makes the defensive calls from his linebacker position and works hard to get involved in the action.
Neg: 
Needs a free shot to the action. Gets caught up in the wash. Shows average skill in coverage despite having safety size.
Analysis: 
Taylor comes off a terrific season and went from a prospect not even mentioned by scouts before the year began to a player who will be signed as a free agent after the seven rounds. He's a backup run-and-chase linebacker who could add value on special teams.
