TAYLOR: "I've got the plays down pat. It's all coming really easy for me. I ain't nervous about messing up anymore because I know the system."
RAVEN INSIDER: What was your progression like last season as a rookie?
TAYLOR: "Toward the end of the season, the more I was playing the more comfortable I got on the field. I'm just looking forward to this year."
RAVEN INSIDER: Do you feel like versatility is a hallmark of your game?
TAYLOR: "Yeah, whenever they put me out there I'm going to do the best I can do and I look forward to doing a lot of different things this year, too."
RAVEN INSIDER: Do you feel challenged by the Ravens drafting Musa Smith in the third round?
TAYLOR: "He's a great back. I didn't get a chance to watch him much when he was in college, but it's good to have him on board. I would just tell him to work hard and learn from us the same way I learned from Jamal. If he has any questions, I'm here for him."
RAVEN INSIDER: What did you pick up from watching Jamal Lewis?
TAYLOR: "I learned so much from Jamal and this year I can put that knowledge to good use when I get up in there. It's hard to learn patience. I learned that last year."
RAVEN INSIDER: Do you feel like it's an automatic mismatch if you're isolated against a linebacker?
TAYLOR: "Yeah, I feel that way. That's the type of mentality I've got. If I go against a linebacker, I know I can beat him. That's what I always want." RAVEN INSIDER: Have you gained much weight and strength from last season?
TAYLOR: "I'm like 220 now, so I just gained like five pounds. I tried to get stronger so I can break more tackles. I can bench about 430. I did 400 last year."
RAVEN INSIDER: What are Brian Billick's goals for you for this season?
TAYLOR: "He'll probably demand more from me because he knows what my capabilities are. I will demand more from myself. My role ain't going to be much different. They're going to use me just like they used me last year."
