  • Safety Cooper Taylor Makes A Big Impact

    http://insidefootball.com/blog/archives/6093

    Excerpt: "When looking at the Giants’ defensive huddle on the first day of rookie camp, there is one player who is impossible to ignore.

    At 6’4, 228 pounds, safety Cooper Taylor seems out of place playing in the defensive backfield, but his 4.49 40-yard dash makes him fit in perfectly with his shorter, lighter counterparts in the secondary.
    Today, he displayed all of the physical attributes that justified the Giants picking him in the fifth round, number 152 overall. He showed a quick, steady back-pedal while dropping into coverage, fluid hips in his change of direction, and an explosive first step on his break to the ball. His closing speed put him in position to nearly make several tipped-ball interceptions in the morning 11-on-11’s.

    Taylor has all of the tools to eventually play his way into a starting position on an NFL defense, but he seems tailor-made to be the third safety in Perry Fewell’s patented three-safety defense. Luckily for Taylor, he does not need to be thrown into the mix right away due to the presence of Antrelle Rolle, who has solidified the third safety spot, and whose contract expires at the end of the 2013-2014 season."

    I'm excited about this guys potential. I'm not going to put too much faith in him being a star but, I like what he could possibly bring to the table. Intriguing player.

      Man, the G Men having alot of young talent at safety.. Hill and Cooper might have to battle it out for the 3rd safety spot

          TC thinks he might also be able to play "outside backer"

            Antrel Rolle solidifying a safety spot. That was so funny.

            With Cooper, it seems as if they'll fill the MLB void through different packages. Cooper can potentially be that tampa2 LB as it's probably easier to find a safety to convert than a LB who can cover deep.

              the funnier thing is the hatred towards rolle. this D would have been that much worse with out him last year blown coverages or not. you want to see the real antrel rolle? play him at CB and let him press.

                Rolle had more blown coverages than any CB, and bit on more play fakes than any LB. He's better off near the LOS or in the box. I'd rather not see him playing deep coverage.

                      rolle was playing safety, not corner so the comparison is not the same. you are right, rolle is best around the LOS, that goes for coverage as well. he isnt and never was a zone guy, even in college.

                          It's not hate, it's calling the truth. Rolle is awful at coverage.
