    Phil Taylor is a big dude. At 6'4", 337 pounds, you aren't likely to miss him when his intent is to inflict the maximum amount of pain on your starting running back or quarterback. However, as much girth as he presents, it's mostly fans of Big 12 and Big 10 football and draftniks around the world that know his rather common name. Phil Taylor is a candidate for the 2011 draft, and a name you may need to know as we approach April. He attended Gwynn Park High School in PG County Maryland, and I always love when local (to me) products join the Dallas Cowboys.

    Taylor did have a minor legal dust-up while attending Penn State University. Charges were dropped for aggravated assault that stemmed from a fraternity house function. However, it seems that these charges (of which he did receive misdemeanors) were the last straw as later that off-season, Penn State head coach Joe Paterno dismissed Taylor from the team. If the Cowboys do draft Taylor, you will surely hear about these character concerns. Taylor sat out the 2008 season and returned to eligibility for the 2009 campaign. Taylor finished up at Baylor.

    Good post Joe, thanks... He's a very intriguing prospect because he's ideal size and has some talent.
