Levonta Taylor, CB, FSU
Levonta Taylor began his collegiate career at Florida State with a lot of hype. He was the number one cornerback in the 2016 recruiting cycle and through two years with the Seminoles, Taylor looked to be on the fast-track to being a potential first-round pick.
Unfortunately, injuries and a coaching turnover stunted his growth and because of that, he was never able to really take that next step as a prospect, ultimately leading to him going undrafted in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Luckily for Taylor, he signed a UDFA deal with the Los Angeles Rams who have a huge need for secondary help and are a great fit for his skill set.
Taylor was used in a lot of different ways at FSU and that versatility could be key for him to earn a spot in Brandon Staley’s defense.
Staley has been vocal about the importance of being able to slide into multiple roles, saying “That’s something you’ll probably hear me talk about a lot, having the versatility to play any place in the front, any place in the back,”
As long as he is healthy, Taylor has great shot at landing on the final roster and would add some young depth to a very thin defensive back unit.
