Seahawks' Darrell Taylor: Impresses as pass rusher
Taylor posted 37 tackles (28 solo), 6.5 sacks, a pass breakup and a forced fumble across 16 games during the 2021 season.

The Tennessee product was an explosive pass rusher in college, racking up 8.5 sacks and 10.0 tackles for loss in his senior season. The Seahawks have a deep group of defensive ends, but Taylor's ability to line up as a linebacker could afford him some extra reps right away.... See More ... See Less
