STL Audio Post
Vincent Taylor – Defensive Tackle – Oklahoma State
DOB – JAN 04 1994
Height – 6’3″
Weight – 305 lbs
Top notch strength and surprising speed for a big man. Even when he is not getting the sack or tackle for loss he is a pocket perpetrator. Strong first punch at point of attack consistently knocking offensive lineman back. Consistently shows the ability to beat pulling guards or tackles to his spot to blow up plays in the backfield. Has a nice spin move he can win with as a counter move. Long arms and strong hands are shown in his game tape. Led the nation in blocked field goals. Motor doesn’t run out of gas and he stayed healthy his entire College career. Had very impressive production at Oklahoma State in his three years their ( 12 sacks, 23.0 tackles for loss, 112 tackles).
Big upper body, but not as big in his lower half. Can play to tall at time. Needs to improve in the leverage aspect of the game. Needs to develop better technique with his hands as a pass rusher. Can get turned in the run game when playing to tall.
Taylor shows great power and balance here to get the strip sack in a dominant performance against a stout West Virginia offensive line.
Healthy Sharrif Floyd
A player who is still on the rise. Jumped from 4.5 sacks to 7.5 sacks and jumped from 9.0 TFL to 13.0 TFL in 2015 to 2016. Fits best in a 4-3 scheme in my opinion can playing either the 1-Technique or the 3-Technique. Has the ability to be a pass rush threat from inside or the double team undertaker as well. Very level headed guy who hasn’t always had the easiest life. Hurricane Katrina survivor who uses that as fuel to real fire up what I think will be a very productive NFL career.
