Taylor is one of the Wolverines’ more intriguing players from the class of 2011. He could play several positions at the next level, including cornerback, free safety, or wide receiver. He doesn’t have ideal change-of-direction skills for corner, nor ideal size for safety and wide receiver. However, he was a productive player on both sides of the ball, and I have to give him credit for that.
At least a couple of the five freshman defensive backs are going to contribute this fall, and Taylor ought to be up there battling for time. He has the overall skill set to see time on special times, and as I said in his commitment post, he reminds me of James Rogers. Rogers saw a little time as a freshman cornerback back in 2007, so maybe we’ll see a repeat of his career. The Wolverines are also a little low on receivers, so I wouldn’t be entirely surprised to hear that Taylor’s taking snaps on offense in August, either.
Prediction: Backup defensive back; special teams contributor
