With the likely departure of Albert Haynesworth, the Washington Redskins need to bring in defensive linemen via the draft or free agency. Rick Maese of the Washington Post has been in Mobile, Ala., for the Senior Bowl this week and he believes the Skins are intrigued with Baylor defensive tackle Phil Taylor. Maese reports that Taylor has been handling interior offensive linemen with ease this week. And he certainly did the same thing against the Texas Longhorns last season.
Folks believe that Taylor has the ability to play the three-technique or the nose.
"I played both this year," said Taylor. "I played mostly the one-technique. But three or the one -- it's not a big deal for me. ...Wherever they want to put me, I'll play it."
Taylor is hoping to drop 10 pounds before the combine, which would get him down to about 327.
