2.22 Miami Dolphins Jamar Taylor , CB, Boise State (5-10 1/2, 192)
With the 22nd pick in the second round of the NFL Draft, the Dolphins selected CB Jamar Taylor from Boise State. He was the sixth defensive back taken in the second round and an area the Dolphins had to get some help at. Last season, the Dolphins secondary only had 10 interceptions and they lost their best corner to free agency. They did sign Brent Grimes in the offseason which should solidify one side but the other side will be open for Taylor. Barring a horrible performance in training camp, Jamar should be able to start from week 1. He is a physical corner and should perform well in both man and zone schemes. He will also not shy away from helping in run support.
With all of the moves the Dolphins did this offseason in free agency, the choice to go DB here in the second round will help balance the overall team. Miami could be very fun to watch this season.
During Jamar’s senior year, he was selected to the First-Team, All Mountain-West Conference.
