101: Three years out of high school, it is time for Jon Taylor to get going, and it seems like he will this fall. He played only ten games last fall, but he will be called on for more production this fall. He was arrested in the spring – showing that he's still immature off the field – but he had a good spring practice. At 6-4, 336, Taylor is one of the largest Dawgs on the roster. It will be interesting to see how Jeremy Pruitt uses a player as large as Taylor this fall.

Days Gone By: Taylor had nine tackles in ten games in 2013. He didn't start last season for the Bulldogs. He was considered a four-star prospect by Scout.com and the #4 player in the state in 2012 by Dawg Post. He picked Georgia along with fellow Jenkins County teammate James Deloach.

Legge's Thoughts: Again, its time for Taylor to get going. He's got the body and seemingly has the skill set. Like any big man, Taylor has to make certain he's in good condition for the first two games of the season. He should be able to work his way into things from that point forward. At some point in his career I am expecting Taylor to take off – 2014 could be that time. But it should be noted that he will only be a sophomore this fall, so he's got time to work things out still.
