Movie Room: Cam Taylor-Britt Is Exactly What Bengals Need

The Cincinnati Bengals They rarely make a deal to move higher in the draft, but that’s exactly what they did to pick Nebraska corner hitter Cam Taylor-Britt in Round 2 of 2022 NFL Draft.

After the selection, the staff praised Taylor Brett for his energy and persistence. Let’s see what Taylor Brett brings to the table.

Taylor-Britt’s position appears at number five in red at the bottom of the screen.

In this clip, Taylor Brett is in press coverage and defends the fade (off vertical track) with the receiver.

It does not physically confuse the receiver at the line of scrimmage. By choosing the sliding technique instead, he slides backwards and keeps his eyes focused on the receiver. When the receiver goes outside, Taylor Brett puts both hands on him. it’s a problem. It should only use reverse receiver versions.

Bringing his inner hand when he sticks the receiver out will help Taylor Brett open his hips and make a smooth transition. Placing his outer hand on the receiver will close Taylor Brett’s hips and make it difficult for him to move.

Fortunately, he removed his outer hand very quickly, and is able to spin smoothly 180 revolutions.

Taylor Brett can run step by step with the receiver, staying on his hip. Even when he turns around and looks for the ball, he doesn’t drift off of it. When the pass comes, he cuts in front of the receiver and plays the ball.

This was a great play illustrating Taylor Brett’s speed, acceleration and flexibility.

“But coach, who is this recipient?”

Well, in this clip the receiver is Ohio State The lead and the eleventh overall selection of New Orleans Saints Chris Olaf. It is very good. *wink

Once again, we see Patience on the line of fray as Taylor watches Olaf’s Brett and awaits his release announcement. When Olaf goes inside, Taylor Brett collects his hands. As discussed above, this is something that needs to be trained outside of its game. He still makes a smooth transition and is directly on the receiver’s hip, when the ball is thrown in the other direction.

Taylor Brett is an excellent athlete who can stand up to the best talent.

Members of the Kornhusker family, such as the Bengals, run a wide range of coverages. Taylor Brett excels regardless of the defensive appeal. He does a great job of reading the midfielder’s coverage area, giving him many opportunities to play on the ball.

In this clip, Taylor Brett is in charge of the deep field area, but he reads the quarterback and gives up the vertical position to break the deep field. If you pause the clip the moment the quarterback takes his hand off the ball (about 3 seconds), you can see that Taylor Brett is starting to fall apart. This is perfect and not uncommon in a Taylor Brett movie.

Taylor-Britt is off screen at the beginning of the clip, but will be number 5 in white, at the top of the screen, behind the receiver.

The last clip was great, but what you really want to see are objections. This requires a good quarterback reading, a quick break on the ball, and the ball skills to pull it off.

Ladies and gentlemen: a trifecta.

Nebraska is in cover form 2 in this section. As a Cover 2 corner, Taylor-Britt is responsible for the Curl/Flat zone. If you pause the clip for about two seconds, you can see an outside road in front of Taylor Brett and a vertical road behind. His job is to defend both, which is an important reason to read the midfielder effectively (see Previous Play).

The deeper path, of course, is the priority, so it must continually backtrack in search of depth. He should not simply jump into the lower path, leaving safety on an island unassisted.

If the midfielder takes his hand off the ball and his shoulder is low, the corner should break on the way out. If he can get in time to make the intervention for little or no gain, it’s a win for the defense. This is why the intervention of the corner pillars is so important.

In the event of a deep outward pass, the safety and back corner will limit the path. The safety is responsible for playing over the top of the receiver, so if the ball is thrown in front of the receiver, the safety must be able to play on it. The corner is played under recovery, so if the ball is short or intentionally thrown to the back shoulder, the corner needs to be played on.

If the midfielder, as happens in this case, raises his hand off the ball and has a raised shoulder, he is looking to put air on the ball. This means that it deepens and exits. The corner under the vertical track should break, in which case it fades.

Taylor-Britt does an extraordinary job in this play, closing off the space and getting below the vertical track. He gets there just as the ball does and comes out with an interception.

This is one of my favorite Taylor-Britt clips because it shows off its resilience.

He gets caught looking at toys and gets hit on the road. This play should be downhill. You see a lot of guys giving up on plays like this, but not Taylor Brett.

It catches up just in time to give the receiver a little boost while trying to secure the catch. It is enough just to force a non-completion. Taylor Brett does not give up.

Taylor Brett is number 5 in red, and it will appear on the screen from the left.

Before defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo arrived in Cincinnati, tackling was a big problem, but in recent years they have focused on bringing in quality players. Taylor Brett will continue this trend.

In this clip, they bring a receiver into motion to block Taylor Brett. Receiver seriously outweighed. Taylor Brett hits the potential barrier, pushes him back and quickly exits to make the intervention.

Here the offense is to run a quick screen for the receiver. Taylor Brett runs straight over the barrier to tackle the loss.

Taylor Brett brings the physicality that the Bengals are looking for to the center back.

This clip also has a screen, but this time the back screen is on Away From Taylor Brett.

Taylor Brett was running off, and when the ball was thrown, he kept running. He tracks the ball carrier down and with a little help from his teammates, makes an intervention.

This is an incredible effort.

Cam Taylor-Britt is great for Bengals culture and defensive style. He does great reads and has the ability to do great plays in high school. His level of effort is unmatched, allowing him to make plays all over the field.
