The second of two defensive minded wings from the SEC drafted by the Bobcats in the 2012 draft, Jeff Taylor is a senior out of Vandy with good athleticism, a good shot from the perimeter, and a strong defensive reputation. Between Jeff Taylor, MKG, and Gerald Henderson, defense at the 2 and 3 should not be a weakness for the Bobcats.
ESPN NBA Player Ranking:
No stats to share as of yet, since Taylor has yet to play in a regular season game. I may toss a college stat in here later.

Perspectives from around the web:
Though he will be 23 years old on draft night, Taylor is one of the few players in this draft who should be ready to contribute immediately. At 6’7 with a solid 226-pound frame, a respectable perimeter jump shot, and lockdown defensive potential; Taylor has solidified his standing as a first round draft pick this season who could rise up draft boards in June if he strings together a solid NCAA Tournament run and strong individual workouts.
