Ourlads' Profile:

Big and athletic, Taylor is an imposing figure on the Hurricanes' defensive front. He has a good mix of power and athleticism and lined up at multiple spots on the Canes' defense. With extreme first step quickness he can get into a gap and penetrate the backfield disrupting blocking schemes along the way. As a five technique he shows solid bend and squeeze to get around a tackle to the quarterback. As an interior pass rusher he shows strong hands and lower body strength to push the pocket with a bull rush. He flashes ability to disengage and chase the quarterback. Excellent lateral movement he can flatten down the line and make plays along the line of scrimmage. Shows a high motor penetrating and pursuing. Could use more pass rush technique to develop consistency escaping blocks. He has a tendency to get upright and lose leverage against a powerful blocker. Had an uneven season but flashed tremendous upside.
