Da'Sean Downey 6-5 234
John Robinson-Woodgett 6-2 228

Trey Seals 6-4 237
Peter Ngobidi 6-2 221

Taylor could be an impact receiver for UMass. He has FBS size at 6-3 185.

This story from February 2014 features Taylor. If Taylor has NFL dreams, he's in the right system with Whipple. It should be fun to watch his development.
