    Dallas Cowboys Potential Draft Pick in 2011: Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor


    Scouting Report

    Phil Taylor is a rare “pure” 3-4 nose tackle. At 6’4”, 337 pounds, he’s what the Cowboys seek in a space-eater. Taylor displays excellent anticipation and burst for such a big guy, getting off the snap very well. He’s incredibly athletic for his size. Check out the 54-second mark below when Taylor initially gets pushed back but locates the ball-carrier, spins off a block and makes the tackle.

    Taylor’s play recognition is superb, as evidenced by the play he makes on a screen pass at the 20-second mark. He fights off of blocks extremely well, utilizing excellent hand placement and quickness to make plays, even when he’s initially neutralized (2:48 mark).

    I would take him at 40, but I wouldn't trade up into the First round for him.

    I have seen a few projections of him going to the Jets in the 1st.
