San Francisco 49ers Draft Temple DT Jullian Taylor


With the 223rd pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the 49ers selected Temple defensive tackle Jullian Taylor.

Taylor (6-foot-5, 280 pounds) posted 41 tackles in 2017 with 11 tackles for loss. It was Taylor's lone season as a starter for the Owls. He posted an impressive 4.83 40-yard dash and 31 reps on the bench press at his pro day.

"He plays with good hands and balance at the point of attack and this season's play could be a sign of what he's capable of if he stays health," said's Lance Zierlein.

Taylor joins Earl Mitchell and D.J. Jones as the defensive tackles on the 49ers current roster.
