Great in game speed, lackluster timed speed.
Excellent Blitzer who always finds an open lane to the quarterback.
Very intelligent safety who has a great ability to scan the field on every play.
Has good range but could improve
rarely misses a tackle
More of a zone safety, not recommended to go one on one against a slot corner
Good in zone
Was more of a ball hawk early in college but still has a knack for finding the football.
Only had one hip injury in college but wasn't a big injury
Team leader and someone dependable
Blitzing, tackling, play recognition
While at the University of Washington, Taylor Rapp exhibited both stellar range and above average play recognition. He has a great ability to create good angles to stop open field plays, but his angles could use a little more development. He is good, not great in man coverage, and his speed immensely helps him when it comes to tackling. His 40-yard dash time was underwhelming, but his game speed is good. He is extremely quick and tenacious and refuses to give up on any given play. He has mastered the art of delivering clean, yet hard hits to wide receivers. Excellent Blitzer that is great at finding open lanes to a quarterback. He has great pursuit skills. One issue is that he hesitates a bit at times before he tackles. He also has a very tough time getting off of blocks.
