Bio: 
Two-year starter who started all 12 games at right tackle as a senior. Made seven starts at left tackle in 2016. Started two games at right guard in each of his true freshman and sophomore seasons.
Pos: 
Talented left tackle who projects to guard at the next level. Athletic, explosive at the point and moves well. Stays square, keeps his feet moving and shows the ability to redirect to defenders. Effective in motion, sets with a wide base and anchors in pass protection.
Neg: 
Must consistently place his hands into defenders. Bends at the waist, occasionally ducks his head and lacks balance.
Analysis: 
Taylor flashed skill at tackle but has the build and makeup to play guard at the next level. He offers good upside but must improve his fundamentals to reach his potential.
