Watch highlights of Jason Taylor II, the Rams’ 7th-round safety
The Los Angeles Rams finally addressed their need at safety in the seventh round of the draft by selecting Jason Taylor II out of Oklahoma State. Seventh-round rookies aren’t expected to make much noise initially, but Taylor was given a fourth-round grade at NFL.com and was a playmaker for the Cowboys.
He can line up in the slot, in the box or as a deep safety, which gives the Rams plenty of options with their rookie defensive back in the secondary.
Last season alone, Taylor had six interceptions, a forced fumble and 99 total tackles, adding 3.5 tackles for a loss as the cherry on top of what was a fantastic finish to his college career. It’s easy to like his game when watching the film, seeing a player who can contribute at multiple spots with good range and ball skills.
