Take one look at Devin Taylor and you'll see what scouts covet: a long, athletic, former SEC defensive end. At 6'7", 266 pounds, Taylor's size resembles that of Bengals defensive end Michael Johnson (6'7", 270 pounds), who recorded 11.5 sacks last season.
Since 2010, Taylor started each one of South Carolina's 40 games and recorded 30 tackles for loss as well as 16.5 sacks. He held his own while playing on the same defensive line as great Gamecocks such as Melvin Ingram and Jadeveon Clowney.
Taylor is a player who is athletic, but he also works hard. However, his biggest strength seems to be his biggest liability, as his size prohibits agility and sufficient change of direction.
He's a late-round prospect who still has room to grow physically and mentally.
For now, here are some of Taylor's best highlights in a Gamecocks uniform.
