Overview: Fast and strong with desirable credentials, Boise State's Jamar Taylor finds himself as the prospect of interest for a number of franchises including the Patriots, Giants, 49ers, Lions, and Vikings. He expects Taylor to go before the third round. Taylor may be rising out of the Chargers' reach, though. Scouting reports note his good instincts and speed, but harp on his technique. Starting a professional career away from San Diego is how it has gone for Helix's best-known athletes, such as former NBA star Bill Walton, who began with the Portland Trail Blazers before the San Diego Clippers acquired him; Alex Smith, drafted first overall by the San Francisco 49ers; and Reggie Bush, taken second by the New Orleans Saints.
