2013 NFL Draft Player Prospect Profile: Jamar Taylor
There’s a reason why Jamar Taylor earned All-Mountain West honors as a senior last season, but there’s plenty of questions surrounding the star cornerback when it comes to playing at the NFL level. The Mountain West isn’t nearly as competitive as some of the other conferences in college football–which means Taylor may have an extra chip on his shoulder when it comes to proving himself in the pros.
Still, if last year is any indication of what to expect from Boise State players–it’s they certainly have what it takes to succeed at the NFL level and there’s no reason why teams shouldn’t be interested in selecting the cornerback. There are plenty of teams from this year’s draft that could certainly use the help and Taylor has the potential to be a first-round selection.
Even if he does have a lot to prove still, Taylor has the perfect size and athleticism for a cornerback at the pro level and keep in mind how much he’s been praised for his use of hands on defense. As long as he can work on his press coverage against defenders, Taylor could be worth the risk in 2013.
In fact, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Taylor found significant playing time as a rookie depending on which team decides to take a risk on him. There are plenty of teams with holes on defense–so it will be interesting to see what type of impact he makes as a rookie.
