This past season as a redshirt junior, Taylor-Britt recorded 51 total tackles, three tackles for loss, 11 pass deflections, one sack, and one interception while allowing just 35 completions on 66 targets for 351 yards, three touchdowns, and one pick. He was a Second-Team All-Big Ten pick in each of the past two seasons.
Britt started games at cornerback and safety during his college career, though he’s projected to be a corner at the NFL level, the position he played mostly the last two years.
Like first-round pick Daxton Hill, Taylor-Britt is a versatile piece Lou Anarumo can move around this defense to ensure he gets on the field early and often next season.
Look for Britt to challenge Eli Apple for the second starting boundary corner spot opposite of Chidobe Awuzie this fall.
