Wide receiver Courtney Taylor played his college ball at Auburn and is currently a free agent. In 2007, the Seattle Seahawks chose him as the 197th pick overall in round six of the NFL Draft.
At Auburn, Taylor made 99 receptions for 1,394 yards in 37 games. He caught a pass in 33 of 37 games and notched one 100-yard outing.
In his first season with the Seahawks, Taylor played in eight games, making five receptions for 38 yards (7.6 YPC). He also returned one kick for 27 yards and made two solo tackles on special teams.
Taylor, at six-foot-one and 205 pounds, is a decent sized receiver who has good quickness and agility. He runs crisp and exacting routes and possesses soft and sure hands. His body control is first-rate. Taylor is capable of making tough acrobatic catches. He has a good burst of speed off the ball but defenders will usually recover the ground gained. He does a fine job of being fearless up the middle and going to the top for the ball. Taylor is not much of a deep threat player. If it were not for his lack of speed, he could be an elite pass catcher.
