Nebraska cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt was seen as an exciting prospect with plenty of upside. After being selected in the second round of the draft last week by the Cincinnati Bengals, Taylor-Britt joins a Bengals secondary that is very versatile and full of intrigue, including first-round pick Daxton Hill.

You can also add one more title to the former Cornhusker: Energizer Bunny, courtesy of Bengals WR and former Nebraska teammate of Taylor-Britt, Stanley Morgan Jr.

“I called him ‘The Energizer Bunny,'” Morgan said, via Bengals.com. “He’s a hard worker. He’s always been that way … We’ll get an energetic humble beast.”

“He’s not afraid to fail,” added Morgan. “He’s not afraid to throw himself around. And just giving his all for the team. I love that about him.”

Morgan helped mentor Taylor-Britt while they both were at Nebraska. And just as a friendly reminder, Nebraska is also the alma mater of head coach Zac Taylor.

“He helped me in so many ways that he probably didn’t even know how much,” says Taylor-Britt. “Just carrying himself the way he did. I watched every step of it while I was a freshman and that’s when I really needed it.

“They say real recognizes real and he took on that role. I was 14 hours from home. He was that big brother to me. So I was hanging out with guys like him, (cornerback) Lamar Jackson and everybody else when I was a freshman just trying to get a teammate bond with those guys … Man, he really took me under his wing.”

It’s almost inevitable that these two meet in drills in some capacity during training camp. But the connection these two share is a special one and one that should be fun to watch continue to grow in Cincinnati.
