The Chargers have taken former Wake Forest cornerback Ja’Sir Taylor with the No. 214 overall selection in the 2022 NFL draft.

Taylor logged 184 tackles, six interceptions, 24 passes defended, one sack, one forced fumble, and three fumble recoveries in 62 career games.

Taylor also returned kicks in his final season, averaging 26.3 yards per attempt, including one touchdown, on eight attempts.

At his Pro Day, Taylor recorded a 4.39-second 40-yard dash and a 1.54-second 10-yard split. Taylor also amassed a 37-inch vertical jump, 10’5″ in the broad jump, and a 6.84 three-cone drill.

At 5-foot-11 and 188 pounds, Taylor has the speed, fluidity, physicality, and ball skills to compete for a roster spot.
