A team could avoid Taylor if you made him a CB or an OLB because they could pass away from him if he was a CB and could run the opposite way if he was a LB so he wont come across the big play as easily. As a FS, he covers sideline to sideline so he has more freedom and teams doesnt know where he is going to be so Taylor can do what he does best: Get to the ball.
And I agree with V, Taylor is too big to be a CB....
