NFL Draft Prospect Spotlight: Linebacker Davion Taylor
For the Philadelphia Eagles, Linebacker is one of the biggest positions of need as the team finds themselves with little depth ahead of the 2020 season. The team currently only has five Linebackers under contract with a total of 58 starts in the NFL.
Colorado Linebacker Davion Taylor is one of the top prospects available in the 2020 NFL Draft. Before receiving a scholarship offer from Colorado to play football, Taylor had only played six quarters of High School Football and attended Junior College to raise his Football profile while also still competing in Track and Field. During his two seasons playing in the PAC-12, Taylor averaged 50 Solo Tackles and Nine Tackles For Loss per season. Taylor excelled at the NFL Draft Combine running the 40-yard Dash in 4.49 Seconds and reaching 35 inches on Vertical Jump while weighing in at 228 pounds.
On Monday's edition of The Warm Up on 97.3 ESPN Atlantic City, Josh Hennig and Ryan Rothstein talked with Taylor about his journey to becoming an NFL Draft prospect, how he is training in the midst of the COVID19 Pandemic, and how playing in the PAC-12 has prepared him for the NFL.
