The San Francisco 49ers have added some competition for rotational depth on the defensive interior. The team used a seventh round pick on Temple defensive tackle Jullian Taylor. The team attended his Pro Day and took him out to dinner, so clearly he made an impression.
The 49ers defensive interior is fairly settled for starters, but at 6’5 280 pounds, Taylor brings some serious size. It will be interesting to see if the 49ers work with him to add some weight to his frame, or if he is more of a speedy interior option. It doesn’t hurt to have some versatility in what your defensive tackles can do.
How do you grade the 49ers selection of Jullian Taylor?
