Detroit Lions Select Devin Taylor in 2013 NFL Draft

We knew Devin Taylor was a beast. Well now, he is a Lion as the Detroit Lions selected South Carolina's Devin Taylor in the fourth-round (132nd overall) of the 2013 NFL draft.

Taylor, who is 6'7" and 266 lbs., ran a 4.72 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine and should grow into a nice defensive end for the Lions.

Here is his stats broken down:

2012 stats: 45 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, 3 sacks, 1 FR

Career stats: 156 tackles, 35 tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks, 2 FF, 5 FR, 2 ints.

As you can see, he has huge upside and we wish him well.
