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

11/26/14 - CB Jamar Taylor (shoulder) didn't practice Wednesday and his status for Monday's game at the New York Jets is doubtful. Taylor was also a core special teams player so his absence leaves two holes
11/24/14 - CB Jamar Taylor is day-to-day with the left shoulder injury he sustained during the Denver game, according to a source. There's a chance Taylor, who was making his second consecutive start in place of Cortland Finnegan (ankle), could return for Monday's game at the New York Jets.
11/23/14 - CB Jamar Taylor left the game in the third quarter with a shoulder injury and didn't return. It didn't look good for him when he was taken to the locker room on a cart. There was no immediate update on his condition. Miami also played most of the game without left tackle Ja'Wuan James because of a stinger. He didn't return but he said after the game he was fine. "I'm going to be all right," James said. "That's all I've got to say about that."
11/15/14 - CB Jamar Taylor had a team-best and career-high seven tackles in his first career start Thursday.
10/22/14 - CB Jamar Taylor, who seemed a likely starter in the nickel defense last week, doesn't appear to be a candidate to start this week. Taylor only played last week because CB Brent Grimes sat out the final few plays.
09/24/14 - CB Jamar Taylor might see more action in the nickel formation this week. The Dolphins seem to be trying to reduce Will Davis' role a bit.
09/03/14 - CB Jamar Taylor (hip) was limited Wednesday. Taylor is a special teams mainstay who might see limited time from scrimmage in the nickel and dime defenses.
08/17/14 - CB Jamar Taylor is competing for the slot position in the nickel defense. Taylor was regarded as the favorite to win this job, which came open because of S Reshad Jones' suspension. S Jimmy Wilson, last year's slot defensive back, now starts. If Taylor wins the nickel job, CB Cortland Finnegan moves to the slot and Taylor plays on the outside.
07/30/14 - CB Jamar Taylor, the 2013 second-round pick, has been getting snaps at first team but he's not poised to battle Pro Bowl CB Brent Grimes or veteran Cortland Finnegan for the starting job. And he's not battling S Jimmy Wilson for the nickel position. Still, Taylor has been active in practice and seems improved from his injury-plagued rookie season.
12/13/13 - CB Jamar Taylor (hamstring) was listed as questionable after limited practice Friday.
