  Draft Scout by Conference

  06/11/22 - DE Caleb TaylorrFr/2024, Kansas

  There will be something a bit different about Caleb Taylor the next time he plays in a college football game for Kansas. The 6-foot-2 defensive tackle has put on nearly 40 pounds since early last season, and he believes that extra weight will leave him better prepared for the rigors of the game come this fall. Taylor weighed 258 pounds prior to a loss at Duke on Sept. 25 - the third of four games he started as a redshirt freshman. By late March, he had weighed in at 297 pounds, the result of several weeks of proper dieting and a strength and conditioning program meant to help him better play his position.

"It took a lot of work, honestly," Taylor said. "Going into the weight room after practice, getting extra reps in, getting extra sets, being more conscientious of everything that I was putting into my body - but really the biggest part of it was the weight room, and since I did it like that, I was able to gain that much weight but not lose any strength, speed, anything. So, it's good weight. I feel good. I feel great, actually, and I'm glad I got it. I feel way better with it." Taylor, who finished with 14 tackles, played in every game for the Jayhawks last season but did not start again after a loss at Iowa State on Oct. 2 as the team tried to determine the best way to rotate its defensive tackles. He only played football for three years before enrolling at Kansas - and even then only played defensive end - so he found the move to the inside of the line to be a different type of challenge. - Lawrence Journal World
