Weaknesses:

Analysis: Taylor Rapp would be a welcomed addition to any defensive scheme and would make a lot of defensive coordinators happy. He is versatile, playing all over the field and possesses an elite football IQ. Rapp isn’t big, but he’s well-built and durability hasn’t been a concern despite his physical nature as a striker. He doesn’t have elite speed or coverage skills, but is not terrible in any one area. I expect him to be a starter day one and will make an impact in run defense and even more specifically on special teams–his kick cover abilities are top-notch.
