Chiefs Work Out Baylor’s Phil Taylor

As the NFL Draft quickly approaches, the Kansas City Chiefs are making the rounds conducting private workouts.  The latest, according to NFP was with Baylor NT Phil Taylor.

Taylor has six visits and five private workouts over the next few weeks.

Taylor is regarded as a rising prospect on draft boards, especially after the Senior Bowl where he shoved around blockers.

Taylor is a big, strong anchor at 6-foot-3, 334 pounds.

At the scouting combine, he ran the 40-yard dash in 5.09 seconds and bench pressed 225 pounds 31 times.

Taylor recorded 62 tackles, seven for losses and two sacks last season and was named second-team All-Big 12.

We talked in depth about Taylor in recent weeks with the Chiefs still desperately in need for an anchor to their defensive line.

The more you hear about him, it doesn’t seem that his past transgressions at Penn State are something that he brought with him to Baylor or would cause major concerns as a professional.  As we know, Scott Pioli and Todd Haley hold character in high regard, so if Taylor is on the board when the Chiefs draft, it will be very curious to see if they feel he fits in Kansas City.
