PROSPECT SUMMARY - KEITH TAYLOR
Keith Taylor has aligned primarily outside, but has also moved inside in dime situations (Oregon 2019) where Washington appeared to be playing “match.” In the run game, he is a willing tackler who uses his length to secure tackles. He has excellent tackling efficiency in space and receivers rarely get extra yardage while he is in coverage. In the passing game, he does a good job of using his length in press coverage. He will play a bail technique at times and will get caught looking in the backfield as a result.
Ideal Role: Outside-only corner in subpackages.
Scheme Fit: A scheme that uses primarily press-man or zone.
