There are hundreds of stories being told during the planning and anticipation of the 2017 NFL Draft. Today we will be looking at a scouting report for senior wide out Taywan Taylor, Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.

WR-Taywan Taylor, Western Kentucky 5’11” 203 lbs.

The high-flying Hilltopper receiver really took off his junior year and did not slow down with back to back 1400+ receiving yards and 17 touchdowns seasons his last two years. In his senior year, the wide out was very consistent by either reaching pay dirt or having over 100 yards in every game. That was quite impressive and he continued that work in Mobile, Alabama this past week during the practices and game. Because I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, let’s break down what I saw in the seven games I reviewed of the senior play maker: 2016 contests versus Memphis, Rice, Alabama, Vanderbilt, LA Tech, and Middle Tennessee along with the 2017 Senior Bowl. Most of these videos are available via draftbreakdown.com. Here are my thoughts: Read More »

Value is in the eyes of the beholder and it should be there for Xavier Woods in the NFL Draft and in your rookie IDP drafts too. Because I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, let’s break down what I saw in the six games I reviewed of the junior play maker: this year’s East/West Shrine Game, 2016 contests versus Navy, Arkansas, and Western Kentucky along with 2015 games against Arkansas State and Mississippi State.
