Darrell Taylor-Seahawks’ hype train is racing for the 2021 season. After Seattle Taylor drafted Pick # 48 in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Tennessee product didn’t play a role in its rookie season. Fortunately, Taylor has now recovered from his broken right shin and several Seahawks have already described him as “explosive” at the camp. Seattle considered Taylor the No. 1 pass rusher on its board of directors in last year’s draft.
However, the Seahawks have now decided to put the 24-year-old on the SAM linebacker place in their defensive scheme. This spot of the strong side may be a linebacker in a hurry, but the role also requires pass cover elements. Taylor weighed 267 pounds at the 2020 NFL Combine, so concerns about his ability to cover are natural.
My latest video shows what the Seahawks will ask of Taylor in terms of reporting before I check out some promising college experiences Taylor can draw on. TL; DW: Everything will be fine!
