Second-year Philadelphia Eagles LB, Davion Taylor, has a lot to prove in year two.
Over the past four months, we’ve spent so much time discussing the Philadelphia Eagles’ 2021 NFL Draft class that we all kind of forgot about the fact that last year’s bunch has a lot riding on the new campaign as well.
Much of the criticism of the Doug Pederson coaching tree was they didn’t teach and develop their young talent very well. Perhaps that’s behind us because that’s actually supposed to be one of the strengths of Nick Sirianni’s regime. These guys are all supposed to be really good teachers.
Guys like Davion Taylor are where all of those roads intersect. His selection in the third round of 2020’s NFL Draft was a head-scratcher. Fast forward to the present, and his selection is still confusing now.
In 24 games at the collegiate level, as a member of the Colorado Buffaloes program, he didn’t register a single interception. He also had two sacks in two seasons, so umm, what is he supposed to be good at?
His first year didn’t produce much. He appeared in 12 games with one start, and he tallied ten tackles. The Birds are going to need a whole heck of a lot more in 2021, but in all honesty, what makes us think that he’s going to come through and deliver? Do we even think he’s going to come through and deliver? There are a ton of Eagles enthusiasts that might answer that question with a resounding no.
