Miami Dolphins 2nd round draft pick, corner-back Jamar Taylor out of Boise State is expected to be ready for the start of camp.
Taylor underwent a sports-hernia surgery in may and there were questions about his status for the start of camp. Injuries like these usually take a typical 4-6 week recovery time but it’s been 8 weeks since the operation.
Jamar Taylor will compete with Richard Marshall for a starting corner-back job opposite of Brent Grimes. This defense is slowly coming together, getting the right pieces and making them clique is important right now.
During the NFL combine, Taylor was tested and was told that his kidney’s were operating at 42% efficiency. He has the skill and ability to be the #2 starter in Miami, as he was a top performer among corner-backs at the combine for the 40 yard dash (4.39), 20-yard shuffle (4.06) and bench press with 22 reps.
Among other problems, Taylor does have high blood pressure and has had it since he was a teenager and takes medication that caused damage to his kidney’s. Having the doctors available, should keep health problems like these in check.
Now that he is expected to be ready for camp, it’s time for him to do what he has to do, get to work and take that starting position for himself. It’s a dog eat dog world.
