Congrats. The Saints love them some Vols!!!

First UT defensive player to be drafted in the 1st 2 rounds since EB. A trend we desperately need to buck.
Derek Barnett and Darrell Taylor bruh

Dan Williams was taken after EB in the same draft in the 1st round

So proud of Taylor. He's an incredible athlete, just needs to be a better technician in coverage, but could certainly be a quality player.
I'd like to see what he could do at safety in the NFL. I think he played the wrong position his entire college career, just because he was the best option we had at CB. He is a fearless hitter, with elite closing speed. Ideal skillset for safeties. As you pointed out, he lacks the technique elite CB's possess. Congrats to him for achieving his lifelong dream.
