Taylor checked all the boxes.



Jason Taylor II checked all the boxes in Indy.

Taylor, the former Oklahoma State safety, participated in measurables and on-field work at the 2023 NFL Draft Combine this weekend and he was impressive.

Taylor started out at OSU as a special teams placeholder who quickly moved to a special teams playmaker and then to All-Big 12 standout.

According to the NFL’s NextGen Stats, Taylor ranked second with an Athleticism Score of 18 and 13th with a Production Score of 64 for a Total Score of 72, ranked No. 10. How that translates on draft weekend remains to be seen.

Here are the rest of his rankings.

40-Yard Dash: 6th (4.50 sec)
10-Yard Split: 4th (1.52 sec)
Vertical Jump: 2nd (43″)
Broad Jump: 3rd (10’9″)
Bench Press: 14th (14 reps)

On top of all of that, Taylor got some high praise from NF: All-Pro safety Jordan Poyer.

Taylor’s prospect grade of 5.92 lands him in the middle of average backup-to-special teamer. But as we all know those grades can be arbitrary, a ndTaylor knows how to build himself up from special teams.

The 2023 NFL Draft takes place April 27-29 in Kansas City, Missouri. It’s the first time that KC has hosted the draft.
