02/20/13 - 2013 NFL Combine, Medical watch: Virginia Tech's Bruce Taylor enjoyed a fine career but he never took the next stop that seemed possible after a breakout 2010 campaign in which he posted 91 tackles, including 15.5 tackles for loss and six sacks. His junior campaign started off well but a Lisfranc injury robbed him of the final four games and while the physicality he'd played with throughout his career certainly remained in 2012, Taylor didn't cap his career as dominately as scouts had hoped. He seemed to play better as the year went on, however, leading to some speculation that he'll be even better in 2013 after a full removed from the serious foot injury that had ruined seasons for NFL stars Santonio Holmes, Darren McFadden and Matt Schaub, among others, in recent years. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
