Jawaan Taylor Scouting Report image

A starter at right tackle as a true freshman, Jawaan Taylor is one of those players that is simply blessed with a rare body type which has allowed him to be immensely powerful even against top competition as a Florida Gator. While Taylor won't be able to bully NFL players as he did in college, he still possesses rare physical prowess for an NFL prospect.

At 6'5", 330 lbs, Taylor moves like a player much smaller than his size, using his lateral mobility to shut off speed moves and stunting defenders. Taylor could often be observed rag-dolling edge defenders, as his initial punch-possibly his biggest asset as an offensive tackle-stuns defenders and moves them off their line. This strength can sometimes be relied on too much, as Taylor over-extended on his initial punch at the line at times, leaving him exposed. Luckily, he possesses the athletic ability and balance to recover when he does make mistakes.

Watching early tape of Taylor as a freshman and sophomore, he struggled with his feet initially off the line and often stumbled out of his stance against speed-rushers. However, he has clearly focused on his initial kick-step, and his movement off the line can now be counted as a strength.

In my eyes, his only flaw is sometimes relying on his athleticism and power too much, and he can get sloppy. With continued refinement/NFL coaching, the sky is the limit for Jawaan Taylor in the NFL. Taylor can start immediately at either guard or tackle, but I think he will start out playing right tackle, where he played exclusively as a Gator.
