While it's generally true that DTs don't always make a big impact their freshman year, Bresee and Davis from Clemson made All-ACC in their first season. Lawd knows those hillbilly media voters had something to do with it but some players are gifted naturally and Taylor seems to fit that mold. I think we'd be wasting his talents on the edge but I'll defer to Simpson and Diaz on that one.Yeah, thought someone on the recruiting board posted that he was closer to the 290 range. Either way, it's VERY rare for a DT to make a splash as a true freshman. That's one of the hardest positions to make that transition and while he can provide some nice depth, I caution the "bUt I tHoUgHt hE wAs spOsEd tO bE GrEaT" folks from expecting him to be all american year 1.
