The 6-1, 197-pound Taylor is an unheralded athlete that was approaching school career records for receptions and yards before a knee injury forced him to miss the second half of his senior season. Taylor made a remarkable recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament to perform for scouts on campus six months later.
Taylor started 25 of 26 games for the Aggies, snatching 108 passes for 1,705 yards (15.8 avg.) and 10 touchdowns.
Henry Jamaar Taylor was born in West Germany.
Ourlads' on Taylor:
Transfer from Notre Dame after one year. Sat out the '01 season. Starter since the following year. Productive throughout his career – had a solid senior year till suffering a major knee injury in midseason, which ended his college career. A fairly tall, lean wideout with a muscular build and relatively short arms. Fluid athlete with good flexibility and body control. Runs a little upright in his routes – not crisp in his cuts but he has good quickness and enough speed to get upfield and pressure defenses deep. Catches adequately – tends to cradle the ball into his body but he shows some ability to extend and adjust for the high ball. Not dynamic after the catch but he runs with toughness. Is a willing blocker. A medical question mark with above-average tools.
