Caring is creepy: Have a seat Kyle Taylor
COMPARISON: This is obvious, but he's a bigger version of his brother, safety Miles Taylor. Kyle's brother didn't need a redshirt season at Iowa as he worked his way onto the field early on special teams. Miles started every game as a sophomore during Iowa's 2015 season, and will be a seasoned leader in the defensive backfield this year. The linebacker position is pretty deep so don't expect early playing time there but Kyle could get some early experience on special teams.
