Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TAYLOR RAPP: Washington, 5116 208 4.50. Junior entry and three year starter from Bellingham, WA. Versatile prospect with the ability to play close to the line in the box, the outside flat and the deep hole. Often aligns in the box at linebacker depth showing instinctive reactions and quick change of direction versus the run. Natural knee bender. Has experience in a variety of coverage playing quarters, one high and the short flat. Tracks well moving downhill from a deep alignment to make a tackle in space. Solid fundamental tackling skill with knee bend, explosiveness and finish. Rarely misses. Explosive taking on blocks showing no fear throwing his body into bigger blockers. Powerful punch for his size getting quick separation from a blocker. Takes proper angles to the ball wherever he is on the field. Contains the edge run and squeezes running lanes back inside. Solid zone cover skills with awareness of multiple receivers in a zone. Adept at playing the short zones getting under deep routes and playing up to the flat. Reacts well on the throw often making big hits. Shows good range over the top with a closing burst. Has the speed to cover slots and tight ends on vertical routes. Mirror ability is average and will get separated on a cut at times but recovers well. Slight tightness in some reactions such as centerfield turn and turn and run but this is minimized with closing ability and positioning. Ball skills are average as he tends to go for the big hit rather than working the catch point. Can be a little late arriving at the ball. Rapp has solid tools as an NFL starter in the right scheme. His run support ability gives him a fit as a nickel hybrid for many teams. Has outstanding kick coverage skill and has been productive in that area. 2018 stats: 59 T, 6 TFL, 5 sacks, 5 PBU, 2 INT. BTR:left 4.86, right 5.12. Did not work out at Combine. First/second round. (A-30 3/4, H-9,VJ-35, SS-3.99).
