2011 NFL Mock Draft: The Kansas City Chiefs Select...

New, comments

With the twenty-first pick of the 2011 CSC Community Mock Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs (represented mostly by iori125883 and a little by YESSaints) select...

Phil Taylor, DT, Baylor

At 6' 3" and 334 lbs., this guy is a massive space-eater that can occupy multiple blockers. Phil Taylor started his career at Penn State on the same defensive line as Jared Odrick, whom the Miami Dolphins took in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Unfortunately Taylor was suspended and later kicked off the team for his alleged involvement (charges were dropped) in a fight at a 2007 fraternity function. This is something he has to answer to, although a lot of time has passed.

Taylor finally got back to his playing potential in 2010, and by all accounts, he made the most of his fresh start. On the field he is the consensus top prospect for teams looking to fill the nose tackle position in their 3-4. At the next level, he needs to keep his weight under control, improve his stamina and get after the passer a little more to be an elite player. Still, right now he can step in and make an impact in a rotation as a run stopper whom offenses need to avoid. But as good as he is, Taylor does have character and durability issues (knee injury in 2007 and turf toe in 2009).

  • Massive frame and carries weight well
  • Great strength and power Violent
  • Quick hands and uses them well
  • Can push pocket with bull rush
  • Run-stuffing anchor
  • Space eater who occupies blockers
  • Agile for his size with good balance
  • Mean streak
  • Scheme versatile nose tackle
