2012 JC Stats: Currently this season Taylor has recorded an impressive 35 tackles, 2 forced fumbles, and 1 interception.
Closer look: Paris is without question one of best looking physical specimens to play the Safety position coming out of the state of Florida in the last few years. He is a legit 6'3 208 pounds. He plays very good in space and always arrives at the ball aggressive but under control. He breaks on the ball very well and has solid closing speed he has proven to have great leaping ability and very good ball skills. In the redzone he will go up and attack the jumpball with the ability to win most of those battles with the bigger physical wideouts.
Bottom Line: Taylor is already physically ready to step in to a Safety role at the Division 1 level. He also has a solid frame that could easily pack on 20 plus pounds and play some linebacker or rush the edge with his extremely long arms and athletic ability.
He is simply a football player that makes plays and has the size, smarts and athletic ability to fit into multiple roles and schemes. And will be a immediate impact at the next level.
