04/25/2013 - ROB RANG'S FINAL 2013 NFL DRAFT BIG BOARD: 27. Jamar Taylor, CB, Boise State: In a draft class filled with talented cover corners, Taylor is one of the more enjoyable defenders to watch on tape; he's every bit as impressive in zone, press and off-man coverage, as well as in run support. Taylor was impressive at the Senior Bowl and certainly erased any concerns about his overall athleticism with a stellar performance at the combine. Taylor is a better all-around player than former Boise State standout Kyle Wilson, who was selected by the Jets 29th overall in 2010. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
