Darrell Taylor won't be working out during the 2020 NFL Combine
Every offseason, draft hopefuls from across the country descend on the NFL Combine hoping to improve their stock by showcasing their physical attributes for the NFL scouts and player personnel staff members from each and every league team.
While Darrell Taylor will be on hand for the 2020 NFL Combine, which began Monday, the former standout Tennessee linebacker and Volunteer pass rush specialist won’t be doing any physical activity as he continues to rehab from an offseason surgery.
NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero was the first to report that Taylor would not be participating in the workouts at the NFL Combine as the former Tennessee linebacker is not physically ready to go following his surgery.
If you missed the news a few weeks ago, Taylor announced he played the final 13 games of his college career with a stress fracture in his foot. Despite the setback, Taylor still managed to rack up 16.5 sacks in the two seasons he played in Jeremy Pruitt’s defensive system. Taylor also had 21 tackles for loss and 82 overall tackles during that time.
Taylor is expected to participate in Tennessee’s upcoming Pro Day in April and will still be able to interview and meet with teams during this week’s combine.
