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
