With good size for a safety, Ball State alum Aaron Taylor caught the eyes of the Packers staff last weekend – enough so to sign the tryout player to the 90-man roster.
Taylor played in 48 games (29 starts), accounting for 208 career tackles. At 5-11 and 206 pounds, it appears that Taylor has the physical tools to be an NFL safety.
The real question is whether he will have what it takes to make it onto the Packers’ 53-man roster.
In his final season at Ball State, Taylor had 85 tackles and 1.5 sacks. We can’t call him a ball hawk because he didn’t register a single interception while in college.
But the one good thing he has going for him is the number he will wear in Green Bay – Sam Shields‘ old number 37.
