Taylor has fully recovered from toe surgery after landing on injured reserve in late October, Adam Beasley of The Miami Herald reports. Taylor was recently cleared to resume football activities and is good to go for Organized Team Activities in the spring. The 25-year-old had 27 tackles (15 solo) and two sacks in eight games for the Dolphins last season, and figures to play a sizable role in the defensive line rotation in 2019.
Taylor has emerged as a standout among the defensive front through the early portion of training camp, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports. Jackson, coming off a gruesome knee injury that landed him on injured reserve at the end of last season, appears to be back in full force. Entering his second season, Jackson is not a lock to make the final roster, but a strong camp has certainly helped his case moving forward.
The Dolphins selected Taylor in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 194th overall. Taylor (6-foot-3, 304 pounds) looks like a very nice pick for Miami here. He totaled 21.5 tackles for loss over the last two years at Oklahoma State, and at the Combine he showed encouraging athletic metrics -- his 5.07-second 40, 108-inch broad jump, and 7.58-second three-cone drill were all good for his size.
