Coaches Q&A with Mike Williams:
How is he on defense for you?
“We are counting on him to step up this year at outside linebacker position. Maybe his best position for division one college may be at the linebacker spot. Last year he made some brilliant plays from the linebacker position and we feel he is going to be a outstanding linebacker for us this year. He is so agile and athletic he can chase guys down on the outside. He will be a force to reckon with and he has potential to be a good run stopper for us and a pass defender.”
What are his strengths at tight end?
“He has excellent hands. He’s similar to Graham Zug as far as catching the ball. Graham was a guy that we didn’t care if he had three guys covering him. He would still come down with the ball and Taylor is the same way. He has been working hard on his route running this off-season. He has really improved his routes this summer. When we need him to block on the line he does a great job at that. He has the full package. He can run, he has agility, great hands and can block. He is a big part of our running and passing attack.”
