Cam-Taylor Britt Draft Profile
A press corner with good size and fluid hips, Taylor-Britt brings the physicality and competitiveness you want in a boundary corner. He does a nice job rerouting receivers at the line of scrimmage, with the quick hands and play strength to win early in the down. He’s capable in zone, showing good route recognition and the ability to close on the ball. His long arms and ball-tracking ability allow him to get a hand on a lot of passes.
His long speed is good but not great, which could make him a feast-or-famine player as a press corner. He’s a bit too clunky with his backpedal to play a lot of off-man, and he lacks change-of-direction ability to guard the two-man go in the slot.
He’s an intriguing prospect who could be developed in a number of ways, but Taylor-Britt’s best paths are as a corner in a zone-heavy scheme or a move to safety.
Final Grade: 3rd/4th Round
