Scout Inc.'s Marwan Maalouf looks back at Sean Taylor's football skills.
Sean Taylor was blessed with the kind of extraordinary physical attributes that all NFL safeties covet. At 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds, Taylor's ability to hawk down opposing wide receivers and his natural instinct for finding the football is what made him a Pro Bowl player.
Not only were Taylor's coverage skills exceptional, he brought a physical mentality and toughness that was well respected around the league. A devastating hitter, Taylor wanted to leave his mark in every game by letting receivers know that they had better think twice about going up for a ball in front of him.
Taylor was just now starting to reach his peak and would have been a Pro Bowl player for many years to come.
