ESPN's Todd McShay believes Florida junior T Jawaan Taylor could be a top-two round pick in the spring.
The 6-foot-5, 334-pounder has tantalized with his massive frame and nimble feet, but he's finally beginning to put everything together. "He lacks length but displays good quickness, often riding faster rushers past the quarterback when he's able to get his hands on them," McShay wrote. "He shows some pop but needs to work on his angles and play with better body control when coming to the second level." Oct 23 - 1:06 PM

Florida junior T Jawaan Taylor didn't allow a single QB pressure on his 17 pass-blocking snaps against Colorado State according to Pro Football Focus.

Taylor (6'5/328) was also given positive grades as a run blocker from his right tackle spot. A couple months ago, an #AnonymousScout told Charlie Campbell of Walter Football that Taylor's stock could improve if he showed more consistency. I'd say not allowing a single QB pressure on 17 pass-blocking snaps is "showing more consistency." The right tackle has the size and is putting out great tape ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft.

An anonymous scout told Charlie Campbell of Walter Football that Florida junior T Jawaan Taylor's stock can improve if he shows more consistency.

The full quote: "Taylor at Florida is very talented with size, movement skills, and strength," said another scout. "His stock could boom with a strong season. He needs to be more consistent though." Campbell mentions that fellow tackle Martez Ivy is the more famous prospect because he plays left tackle and was the higher recruit, but it's Taylor that has scouts excited. Even if he stays on the right side, he could be one of the first tackles to get drafted in 2019.

SEC Country's Oliver Connolly called Florida sophomore T Jawaan Taylor "a wide-based, run-game punisher."

Taylor was a 12-game starter at right tackle as a true freshman in 2016. Connolly has no questions about his work in blocking on running plays, writing that the 6-foot-5, 339-pounder "can deliver devastating blows to open holes by himself." In terms of pass-rush protection, though, there is still work to be done, here. Noted the SEC Country analyst, "He lacks the foot speed to use his size and sink into a full pass set against dip-and-rip rushers with elite first-step quickness." Connolly adds that Taylor "isn’t twitchy enough to slide out against the most explosive rushers."
