Slimm's 2012 Underrated Junior Prospects (including draft eligible underclassmen)
I'm going to start off with a kid who's long, lean, and has an extremely bright future ahead of him in the NFL, should he decide to come out early after this season. At 6'6", 250 pounds, Devin Taylor has the ideal frame and length to man the RDE spot in a 4-3.... reminds me a little bit of a young Jason Taylor.
He had 7.5 sacks, to go with 13 TFL's last year in Ellis Johnson's attacking style defense. He's going to have the #1 recruit in the country (Jadeveon Clowney) playing opposite of him at the other DE spot this year.... another 6'6", 250 pound athletic beast.
Teams are going to have their hands full blocking these two ends, along with defensive tackle Melvin Ingram (9 sacks last year).
I look for Spurrier to have South Carolina in the SEC title game again this year... they're absolutely loaded with talent everywhere... on both sides of the ball.
