With the 177th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers have selected Louisiana Tech wide receiver Trent Taylor.
Taylor is a 5-foot-8 wideout who excels in the slot. He had a monster 2016 campaign with 136 receptions for 1,803 yards and 12 touchdowns.
“Has necessary toughness to work over the middle Explodes upfield after the catch and has enough wiggle to shake initial tackler,” reads his NFL.com draft profile. “Willing to drop his shoulder and lay into cornerbacks who want to challenge him. Prolific pass catcher with an abundance of confidence.”
