He aided his high school team with winning the Class 2A State Championship in 2000 and was an All American in 2003. He was drafted as No 5 in the overall pickup in 2004 by the NFL.

    Throughout his career, Taylor often faced problems and got into legal issues. At the very beginning of his professional career, he got fined $25,000 for skipping a mandatory symposium. In 2005 he was charged for assault after getting into a fight with a man while searching for his stolen all-terrain vehicles.

    In November 2007, intruders broke into the player’s Miami home. It is said that the intruders were four people between the ages of 17-20 years old.

    Taylor was in his home along with his girlfriend Jackie Garcia and their daughter. They heard a noise in their living room and Taylor went to investigate. As he headed back toward the bedroom he was shot by the intruders. He died the next day on November 27 from his gunshot wounds.
