Comparison

Davion Taylor Philadelphia Eagles

Long, lean, athletic build that should hold more weight in college. Active, dynamic defensive playmaker who has lined up in multiple back-seven roles. Projects to a rangy, in-space, off-line linebacker spot in college. Flashes impressive pursuit ability and straight-line closing speed. Tracks the ball to the perimeter with relative ease. Arrives with pop behind his pads. Great production at the Texas 6A level in the DFW Metroplex. Special teams demon who could contribute there early in college. Participates in 100 meters and high jump. Will need to hone coverage technique to man up vs. slots, backs, and tight ends. Can improve lateral fluidity. Must add bulk to combat bigger, stronger college linemen in the run game. Plays fast but limited track times suggest room for improvement in top-end speed. High-major linebacker prospect who suits modern game well. Long-term potential to be a multi-year starter with an NFL Draft ceiling.
