Taylor Moton NFL Draft Profile
Taylor Moton-OL-Western Michigan
Size: 6’5 319lbs
- Massive frame
- Plus arms and hands
- Drive blocker
Analysis: Taylor Moton has a massive frame with good arm thickness and proportional build in his legs. Plus arm length with big hands. Starting experience at right guard and tackle. Comes off the ball with pad level. Makes concerted effort to drop hips and roll under his target at contact. Has dominant drive-blocking potential. His down blocks turn into steam-rollings. Held his own against Ohio State in 2015 and smothered Illinois DE Dawuane Smoot this season. A bear with strong paws. Plays tend to end for defender once he latches on. Functional climbing to second-level target. Bull rushers won’t bully him very often.
- Slow hands
- Lacks lateral movement
- Upper level pass rushers own him
Analysis: The belief is that Taylor Moton will be moved inside to Guard at the next level. If that’s the case he will need to play with quicker hands into punch as a guard. Footwork needs plenty of work. Needs choppier feet. Waist bending in run game needs correction. Content to make blocks at angles that need to be squared up. Lateral and move blocks feature inconsistent base width. Issues coming to balance before contact if block isn’t right in front of him. Average body control and athleticism. Will be limited to primarily power-based schemes. Has issues with oversetting in pass pro. Can be fooled by twists.
What scouts say: “I had to go back and watch his 2015 tape when he played guard. He was a little rough at tackle this year but that isn’t his spot. Big and strong as a guard. He was moving guys from Ohio State around like it was nothing.”—NFC Scout
NFL Comparison: Dallas Thomas
