The 2014 athlete out of Auburn High School may only be 5-feet, 7-inches tall, but he is physical, he is quick, and he is smart.
"I thought I did pretty well today, but I thought I could have done better," Taylor said. "I could have made more adjustments on the fly, but I had a lot of fun, it was a good camp, and I thought I did pretty good overall."
Taylor showed great speed throughout the speed and agility drills early on in the day and then showed more of that when the real competition started.
He was strong at corner today, but he is willing to play offense or defense on the next level.
"I am open to playing whatever coaches want me to in college, but I worked at cornerback today. It just depends on the system the school runs really. I could play slot receiver or cornerback, I am OK with either one."
Outside of his stellar play at corner, his competitive nature stood out on Sunday. He said that came from his family.
"I work hard and it comes from my parents. My mom was a track star at Baylor, my dad played football at Baylor, and we are all very competitive. It is a competition between me, my mom, my dad, and my sister all the time. We are all just competing at everything and I think that is why I am so competitive on the football field."
The combination of speed, versatility, and his love to compete has helped him land offers from Arkansas State and Memphis already. Georgia Tech has picked up their interest too after seeing him at camp Saturday. They want him back in July.
Taylor was one of the skilled athletes that stood out Sunday inside the impressive indoor facility and here are some others who really stood out to Scout:
Quick Hitter: He was playing a position he is not used to playing, but he showed signs of what he could be like down the road. He usually plays with his hand down at end, but he worked at linebacker Sunday and showed a lot of athleticism. He has to work on his drops and playing under control, but his natural ability will draw him a ton of attention this summer and fall.
Quick Hitter: Byrd was still throwing the football when most of the campers were heading home, so Auburn liked what they saw. He displayed a love arm while throwing some rockets during the 1on1 and pass skeleton sessions. He was not consistent with his accuracy all day, but he was the top quarterback there on Sunday.
Quick Hitter: Do not sleep on this young man. Paschal has good size (6-2/180), good speed, and he knows how to catch the football. He is not a receiver a lot of people are talking about in Alabama right now, but he showed on Sunday he is among the best at that position. He made some very nice catches sliding on the turf and out-jumping defenders.
Quick Hitter: Robinson is a strong wide receive that wins those tough battles against defensive backs when the ball is up for grabs. He can still improve on his bursts out of his breaks, but he made some good catches Sunday and got better as the camp went on.
Quick Hitter: This young running back is a nightmare for any linebacker in a camp setting because of lightening quick feet. He changes direction well, he is very quick out of the backfield, and he has very good hands. He caught some deep balls and short balls on Sunday.
Quick Hitter: Wilson has a lot of knowledge at defensive back because his father Chad Wilson played corner at Miami and he showed it again today. He takes to coaching very well and he was very good in coverage today. He kept his eyes where they were supposed to be, he stayed in position in different coverages, and he reacted to the ball well. Scout still sees him as a potential safety right now, but he showed good cover skills today.
The top performers are all skill guys due to the fact that Scout could not get over to see much of the linemen in another building because of the stormy weather.
