If he is there when we pick, we have to take him.
I would love if he is there. I thought he would go to the Skins...but I wonder if the Pats snag him at this spot. Great value at this point.
Taylor or Armstead!
Hell yes. Armstead is too raw & can't contribute right away. The way the off season is shaking out we're trying to win now & need players to start now.
Although I would also be extremely happy with OLB Arthur Brown or WR Keenan Allen & just ordinary happy with RB Eddie Lacy, RB Montee Ball, or G Larry Warford.
God plz... I wanted this Guy bad if we didn't get a first round CB
Pick is in. We got Taylor!
That's who they took
Bam! Nailed it!
Nice ya ya ya
congrats to you and the dolphins
Another J.Taylor... Sweet.
I love you Jeff!
we have lacked team speed.
we now have much much better team speed then last season.
we will now kill more.
Hell yeah great pick ... love this guy
Nothing like going out on a limb..
LETSSS GOO 22 reps and 4.39 speed MADDEN NUMBERS
Check the grade we get from CBS then check NE:
Wow..nice call I have no idea who he is.
Dion Jordan, Jamar Taylor, and no Branden Albert so far. Pretty good draft day so far.
Great pick. BPA, so heme fit and totally fits a need. OKAY, now.get Swope and BUILD AROUND TANNEHILL... Please.
Pretty good.. Would have loved to see Armstead there though... We have a hole at Tackle where corner has 3 guys that can start.
Good call DKphin although I must admit I know nothing about him can you give me a run down on his atrabutes.
So who does this guy compare to? What is his skillset? I do not know too much about him.
lol, what a madden team we will have next year....
It was Mocked for Miami to take Jamar Taylor with the 42,with so many DB's going we're lucky he made it to 54....very good pick.
Read up on him. He's quick (runs a 4.39) and gets physical with WRs.
Had a 100 yd INT in a bowl game.
from Boise myself, I have watched this kid a lot... simply ecstatic we got him mid-late in the 2nd... could have easily gone late in the 1st
One of those three is coming off back surgery. The other two are more of the journeyman type. We needed a good corner....
Gotta say I like the pick as well. Im thinking WR is gotta be coming up in the 3rd...or TE. I honestly think unless Armstead is there they might wait and get a developmental guy in the 4th or later and go with one of the vets. And we could always still trade for Albert with a 2014 pick...
Collins is a really good player. I cussed when it was announced the Pats got him.
he should start right away, probably a #2 CB opposite Brent Grimes. Looks like we are drafting to help our pass defense.
Their grades are such BS. According to CBS' rankings, which come from NFLDraftScout, has Jamie Collins rated as a 2nd rounder & Jamar Taylor as a 1st-2nd rounder yet Collins is an A+ & Taylor is a B? Collins doesn't fill a need for the Pats at SLB & Taylor fits a big need for the Fins. Such blatant bias BS.
Jamar Taylor CB Boise St. 5'11" 192
STRENGTHS: Instinctive, dependable cornerback with good overall size and athleticism. Versatile corner with extensive experience playing off-man and zone coverage. Possesses a quick, tight back pedal and has fluid hips to turn and run with receivers.
Good straight-line speed and possesses good burst out of his breaks. Reportedly was timed at 4.33 seconds in the 40-yard dash by Boise State coaches.
Breaks quickly on underneath routes, showing the ability to close on the ball to make the interception. Good ball skills, including good leaping ability and timing. Good upper body strength and competitiveness for jump-ball situations.
Reliable run defender who doesn't back down from a challenge. Keeps his containment responsibilities, showing the ability to break free from blocks and is a reliable open field tackler who plays with toughness. Named a team captain in 2012 and is viewed by the coaching staff as one of the team's hardest workers.
WEAKNESSES: Only occasionally asked to play press and may lack the size and arm length to fit in this scheme. Aggressive and can be fooled by double-moves.
Was rarely challenged in 2012 and hasn't faced top-notch competition on a weekly basis throughout his career. Has struggled a bit with injuries and will need to be checked closely by team doctors at the Combine.
COMPARES TO: Ronde Barber, DB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- Needless to say, Taylor has a long ways to go before a comparison to long-time standout Barber is earned, but they share several similarities, not the least of which is good instincts, a burst to close, reliable open-field tackling ability and a strong work ethic.
Awesome draft so far. If Armstead somehow falls to the 3rd round and we get him and Swope I'm going to party HARD tonight.
Summary: Quick-footed, loose-hipped cornerback with desirable speed, cover skills, ball skills and intangible makeup. Can play outside or inside, contribute as a rookie and become a solid No. 2 cornerback best-suited for off- man/zone coverage.
NFL projection: Second-round pick.
I don't care what anyone says, Ireland has nailed this offseason!
So X, does that mean it doesn't suck?
