we drafted a project at safety..will most likely have to prove himself of special teams. Meanwhile a proven saftety who played very well had an INT at the senior bowl against some of the better players in college football, gets overlooked till late 6th..another Alford Morris type pick int he 6th for Washington
Taylor was very good at the Shrine game.

04/08/13 - 2013 Richmond Pro Day: Scouts brave the cold at Richmond Pro Day...The weather was crisp - about 35 degrees - for Richmond’s outdoor pro day on March 19. Scouts from 20 NFL teams braved the cold to watch seven players work out. Nobody there that had gone to combine, but there were three players of note: Cooper Taylor S (6-4¾”, 228 pounds) - Taylor ran 4.58 and 4.49, did 36½” in the vertical, 10-foot-7 in the broad jump, 4.29 in the short-shuttle, 6.96 in the three-cone and 23 reps on the bench press. The coaches worked Taylor out as a linebacker. His official position will be strong safety, but he’s one of those guys who could possibly bulk up and play outside linebacker. Reminiscent of Kam Chancellor of the Seattle Seahawks. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
