    Monte Taylor, 6-4, 265
    He had a decent 10-yard time of 1.67 at 265 lbs in pre-draft workouts. For comparison, Jared Allen had a 10-yard time of 1.68 at 265 lbs.

    He has been with the Seahawks and Eagles. Both previous teams use 4-3 defenses.

    He was a JUCO transfer to Cincinnati where he played for 2 years. He had a small role in his 1st year there and was a pass-rushing specialist in his final year.

    Quote from Bearcats nation:
    The big defensive end was a 3rd down specialist at Cincinnati who checked in during obvious passing situations. He was able to simply pin his ears back and focus on pulverizing the quarterback. Taylor will have a chance to make a career out of that for the Seahawks.
