Keith Taylor Jr. is a sub-radar corner that would help the Philadelphia Eagles.
Washington Huskies cornerback Keith Taylor Jr. has great size. He’s six-foot-three and tips the scales at 200 pounds). Coaches love that at the NFL level, but they’ll also love his disciplined play-style. This is a big-play corner for any team that drafts him. Might the Birds show any interest?
Taylor is long. He has a quick-twitch and smooth hip movement that normally make corners special.
Despite being so lengthy, Taylor moves like a shorter prospect while in coverage. He also has the ability to diagnose an offense’s gameplan quickly and react on time. Philly’s defensive backfield could benefit from a player with Taylor’s tools and skillset as he’s someone who could help lead this team’s cornerback room into the future.
The 2021 NFL Draft is a deep pool of talented cornerbacks and this former Washington standout has everything it takes to be the best of the bunch. With his rare combination of great size, natural quickness, and football intelligence, Taylor has the look of a potential star in the National Football League.
That is something the Philadelphia Eagles have needed for some time now. Let’s just hope that they aren’t too broken-hearted over what went down with that Sidney Jones experiment.
