Without a doubt, Taywan Taylor has experienced the best minicamp of any Tennessee Titans player. The coaching staff, fellow players and journalists alike have raved about the playmaking ability of the first year wide receiver out of Western Kentucky University. Said fellow rookie Corey Davis of Taylor, as reported by Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline, “He has a lot of potential … He is a great guy, a great person. And he can be great at this level.”
The performance of Taylor can’t be a surprise to Jon Robinson and the coaching staff as they appeared very confident in his abilities when aggressively trading up in the third round to secure his services. Taylor will likely split time with Eric Decker out of the slot and serve as the more traditional slot receiver in that he is a small, slippery route-runner who will be an explosive yards-after-catch threat for Marcus Mariota and the Titans. If Taylor can sustain his offseason success into the regular season, he could be a force to be reckoned with for opposing defenses.
