2013 NFL Draft: Cooper Taylor to visit Jaguars

Taylor, 6-5, 228 pounds, was an AP All-American as a senior in the Spiders secondary.

A player that many previously considered a match for the Jaguars secondary, Richmond safety Cooper Taylor is scheduled to have a private visit with the Jaguars, according to Tony Pauline of USA Today.

Taylor, 6-5, 228 pounds, is huge for a safety, but has 4.49 speed and a 36.5-inch vertical jump. A transfer from Georgia Tech, Taylor was a first-team AP All-American as a senior, as he recorded 78 tackles, four interceptions, three forced fumbles and nine pass break-ups in the Spiders secondary.

Following the release of safety Dawan Landry, the Jaguars have a need in their secondary and many have looked for them to fill the void with a large Kam Chancellor-type of safety. During his time as the defensive coordinator of the Seattle Seahawks, Gus Bradley often relied on Chancellor to play shallow in the secondary as more of a fourth linebacker with coverage skills, while Earl Thomas played more of a center-field role behind him.

According to Pauline, Taylor is also scheduled to visit the New York Giants.
