In an interview with Scout earlier this summer, Taylor complimented Virginia’s defense and the new coaching staff, noting in particular the staff’s ability to put people in the NFL.
Here’s Taylor’s 2015 highlights. The 6’4”, 180 lb. linebacker can be quick off the outside and can put pressure on the passer as well as stop the run.
He attended one of the Rivals Camps over the summer, where he was tagged for making a top-10 play among linebackers (No. 8).
