Taylor Wein - Nolensville - EDGE
While I don't know if he's on UT's radar yet, interest in Wein exploded this week when his senior film became available. He has picked up offers from Ole Miss, Missouri, Oklahoma, Virgina Tech, and Southern Cal over the past 3 days. So far this year he has tallied 85 tackles, 30 TFL, and 8 sacks. As you can see in his highlights, Wein is cat-quick and explosive:
The first thing that jumps off the page about Wein is his first step. He’s quick off the snap, often allowing him to beat his blocker before they even come out of their stance. He displays good hand usage at the point of attack to defeat blockers. Wein shows off a strong set of pass rush moves, deploying a diverse set to keep blockers off balance. He can win inside and outside when rushing the passer.
As a run defender, it’s clear his length causes problems for offensive linemen. Despite his height, he shows a strong ability to play with leverage and does a great job at setting the edge and playing with discipline in the run game.
