I’m just saying there’s gonna be a competition between those lower tier guys and it wouldn’t surprise me if he ended up on the practice squad or not getting much playing time. Not sure if he has any special teams ability. 

true. i'm not sure about the special teams stuff, but i'm sure he's got the wheels to be a good gunner. it may take time for him to be a starter, but in a year or two i can see it. this year it would probably be situational stuff he gets brought in on, but he would be able to hang with some of the better WRs in the league when he does.

the problem is, how many of those guys on the roster fit the aggressive man scheme it looks liker we're going to be heavily moving towards? more likely to see a lot of those other 'maybe' type players not on the team than taylor on the practice squad.

With 2 or even 3 safeties, they are going to want aggressive press man qbs.  They know what they are doing.  Very excited about Horn, Nixon, and now this guy's upside.  He is not there yet, but we have Melvin and Bouye to hold down the fort.  I still think we need a LB--on D and an IOL on offense.

Yeah that’s why I figured a practice squad spot isn’t necessarily bad for him. He can be called up for spot duty if we have injuries. If he has special teams ability that will help him get a jersey on game days. Nobody should expect this guy to be a major contributor this year tho.

I actually like the player just fine but there were several options on the board that I liked better. This feels like we are trying to show everyone how smart we are and that can get you in trouble.

Yes, that's it! Because the pros liked other guys than you, they are showing how smart they are! 

Wow

practice squad would be dangerous, though. could see him getting snagged by another team. Would rather have one of the other guys picked off.

I seriously doubt he would get picked by another team.

Good Choice---tall, fairly quick, aggressive corner who is a good athlete. My only problem with this guy is he probably can't realistically be expected to line up at Offensive Guard or Tackle.

Did anyone watch Taylor the week of Senior Bowl? We’re not putting him on the practice squad. Don’t be surprised if we start him outside and move DJax to the slot.

Panthers selected Washington CB Keith Taylor with the No. 166 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. 

Taylor (6'2/198) started for Huskies his final two years on campus. He didn't accrue any notable accolades and broke up only six passes, none of which were interceptions. Taylor was at his best on film when allowed to sit in shallow zones and drive back toward the ball. Taylor may have an explosive, yet inconsistent trigger on these assignments, but his tackling and demeanor are admirable. Taylor would be best in a zone-heavy scheme, either outside or in the slot, and may have a future at safety if things do not work out at cornerback.

This:  {" Taylor would be best in a zone-heavy scheme, either outside or in the slot, and may have a future at safety if things do not work out at cornerback."}
