Dolphins selected Boise State CB Jamar Taylor with the No. 54 overall pick.
Two draft picks and many millions of free-agency dollars later, the Dolphins have their Sean Smith replacement. Taylor (5-10, 192) was a three-year starter for the Broncos, notching seven interceptions, 11 TFL and and four sacks. He ran 4.39 at the Combine with a 10-foot-7 broad jump and 35-inch vertical. Taylor was Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris' top-rated senior corner in this class, excelling in both off-man and press-bail coverage with speed to run with vertical receivers. Taylor consistently stays in the wideout's hip pocket. The Dolphins will hope Taylor pans out better than fellow former Boise CB Kyle Wilson did. Fri, Apr 26, 2013 08:05:00 PM

Draft insider Tony Pauline says to pencil in Boise State CB Jamar Taylor to the Falcons at pick No. 30.

Pauline notes to only do so "if the Falcons don’t make a move or have a big time pass rusher fall into their lap." There will be a multitude of corners to choose from in the late first-round, and a pass rusher like Bjoern Werner could wait that long on draft day as well.

Draft insider Tony Pauline has been told that several teams thinking about selecting a corner in the late first-round "will not consider taking any prospect at the position unless they are at least 6-feet tall."

To be blunt, this makes no sense and forces us to believe those same teams could be targeting Jamar Taylor, who has great skill but under 6-feet tall. Darius Slay fits the mold listed by Pauline, so he could be a surprise entry into the later part of the first-round.

The Falcons worked out Boise State CB Jamar Taylor on Saturday.

Taylor is a versatile corner who disrupts the catch point after wasting very little movement when trailing. Our own Josh Norris considers him the top senior at his position and we doubt that he makes it out of the first-round.

Redskins beat writer Tarik El-Bashir suggests Boise State's Jamar Taylor, Oregon State's Jordan Poyer, and Miss St.'s Darius Slay as three CBs the team could target in the second or third round.

Of the three, we prefer Taylor due to his ability to play press bail or off coverage. He might not have the biggest name in draft circles, but Taylor has a strong chance at a top-40 selection. Poyer is another versatile option, but some could focus more on his off field and long speed questions. Slay was overshadowed by Johnthan Banks, but has plenty of talent in his own right.

The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport keeps hearing Boise State CB Jamar Taylor's name while attending Senior Bowl week.

Rapoport singled out the North cornerbacks as a position loaded with talent, and we absolutely agree. Utah State's Will Davis has struggled at times this week, but put forth solid tape prior to the Senior Bowl. Taylor tops the list, however, because he disrupts at the catch point and sticks with receivers very well in press or off man coverage.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler tweeted that Boise State senior CB Jamar Taylor is a "top-100" player and "rising."

Brugler added that Taylor could sneak into the top-75. After studying the lean corner we agree, and Taylor flashed in both man and zone coverages. The Bronco is at his best when flipping his head to locate the football while keeping an arm bar on the receiver. More than once he ran the receiver's route for him.

SI's Tony Pauline labeled Boise State senior CB Jamar Taylor a "riser" following his week four performance against BYU.

Pauline says Taylor was "largely responsible for" keeping the Cougars to only 61 yards passing, and the senior also registered one sack and one interception. Due to his size and speed, Pauline believes that Taylor as want teams want in a starter and has seemingly "rounded out his game this year."
