Broncos, Chiefs looking at big Baylor DT
By Bill Williamson
Phil Taylor is on the radar in the AFC West.
NFL.com is reporting that Baylor’s massive nose tackle has worked out for the Kansas City Chiefs and he will work out for the Denver Broncos. The report also states Taylor will visit Kansas City in addition to his workout. Taylor is working out for several other teams.
He is looking like a sure first-round pick. Taylor fits both 4-3 and 3-4 defenses. Kansas City runs a 3-4 defense. Denver is moving from a 3-4 to a 4-3.
If Taylor, 6-foot-3, 334 pounds, ends up in Denver, it will likely require a trade down by the Broncos, who hold the No. 2 overall pick, or a trade up into the first round from their No. 36 pick in the second round. Denver has been working out players throughout the draft board to set up many scenarios.
Kansas City has the No. 21 pick. Taylor could be a good fit there. The Chiefs are looking for a couple of stout defensive tackles this offseason. They tried to sign Shaun Rogers before signed with New Orleans shortly before the lockout.
