Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Dolphins' picks: Round 2/54 - Jamar Taylor, CB, 5-11, 192, Boise State...The Dolphins need to revamp their secondary after parting ways with Vontae Davis and Sean Smith in the last year, and began that process with Taylor, one of the most consistent corners in the draft who had four interceptions in his senior season. Taylor will compete for the No. 3 cornerback spot behind starters Brent Grimes and Richard Marshall, and will eventually replace the two older veterans in the lineup. QUOTE TO NOTE: "I play with a swagger. Yeah, I'm kind of chippy. I like to talk stuff, I like to keep a smile on my face. But you know I'm someone who is going to go out and play real aggressive and let you know what I'm doing." -- Dolphins CB Jamar Taylor, their second-round pick out of Boise State. - The Sports Xchange

08/09/16 - DB Jamar Taylor, who is trying to become the nickel back, picked off a pass from Cody Kessler Tuesday.
05/03/16 - CB Jamar Taylor was traded with a seventh-round pick in the 2016 draft (250 overall) to the Colts for a seventh-round pick (223 overall) Saturday (April 30).
12/28/15 - CB Jamar Taylor was inactive for Sunday's game against Indianapolis, which almost confirms he's officially in the doghouse. Taylor, a second-round pick in 2013 who was a starter until a few weeks ago, was made inactive so the Dolphins could activate CB Tyle Patmon.
12/21/15 - -CB Jamar Taylor seems to be in the doghouse. Taylor, a starter until a two games ago, was the only player aside from backup QB Matt Moore who didn't play against San Diego.
12/07/15 - CB Jamar Taylor, who had started six games this season, not only lost his starting job to rookie Bobby McCain, he was inactive for the first time all season. Interim coach Dan Campbell said it was because Miami wanted to keep an extra safety active for special teams purposes, but the Dolphins had the same five safeties active the previous week against the New York Jets.
09/28/15 - CB Jamar Taylor seemed to take the starting RCB job from veteran Brice McCain, who was burned repeatedly by Buffalo. Taylor normally enters in the nickel package as the boundary corner. But in the fourth quarter against Buffalo, Taylor stayed at the boundary in the regular defense, sending McCain to the bench.
09/09/15 - CB Jamar Taylor (thigh) was limited in Wednesday's practice. Taylor's role remains unclear because he won't start in the regular defense. There's a good chance Taylor plays boundary cornerback in the nickel defense and CB Brice McCain moves inside to the slot.
08/27/15 - CB Jamar Taylor (thigh), who hasn't practiced since being injured Saturday at Carolina, seems unlikely to play this week against Atlanta and might be questionable for the preseason finale against Tampa Bay. If Taylor doesn't play expect CBs Will Davis, Zack Bowman and Bobby McCain to get increased playing time.
08/26/15 - CB Jamar Taylor (thigh) practiced Tuesday after leaving the Carolina game on Saturday. Taylor's participation was a welcome sight for the Dolphins, who have patiently waited for his injury-plagued career to finally get going. Taylor is battling veteran Brice McCain for the starting nickel job. Whatever happens there, it appears Taylor will start at right cornerback. The question comes when Miami goes to nickel, and whether Taylor or McCain moves to the slot.
12/24/14 - CB Jamar Taylor (shoulder) was placed on the injured reserve list. Taylor sustained his injury against Denver. He missed the next two games and although healthy, didn't play against New England. He was the starting slot DB in the nickel package last week against Minnesota but apparently aggravated his injury.
