2016

2015

The 2013 fourth-rounder was popular among teammates during the 2015 preseason, drawing favorable comparisons among teammates with another jumbo-sized, athletic defensive end - Ziggy Ansah. Though he's only collected 3.5 sacks in his first two seasons, Taylor may be poised for a breakout season in 2015.

2014

Taylor saw little time along the Lions' front four last year, and it's unlikely his role will change this season.
