2013 Redshirt Prospect: CB Jamar Taylor
I'm expecting great things from Jamar Taylor. If he isn't our starter this year then it is because Cortland Finnegan found his mojo. I do expect Taylor to be our starter in 2015. He can be that good.

The Boise State prospect tumbled to the 54th pick thanks, at least in part, to kidney damage. And less than a month after he was drafted, Taylor had sports-hernia surgery. All of that significantly impacted his rookie season, even though he did appear in nine games. Now healthy, Taylor is fully expected to compete with Cortland Finnegan for the starting spot opposite Brent Grimes.
It's a good article on teams "rolling the dice" by draftiing injured players knowing they will not contribute a lot in their rookie season. http://www.nfl.com/draft/story/0ap20000 ... -nfl-draft
