Taylor Rapp

Taylor Rapp enters this season with a lot of pressure as he is one of the two safeties that will be tasked with replacing the duo of Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer. For a long time, those two formed one of the best duos in the NFL but with Poyer released and then signing with the Miami Dolphins, it is guaranteed to change.

Shortly after releasing Poyer, the Bills signed Taylor Rapp to a three-year deal and made it clear that he is expected to be a starter. Last season, Rapp played in 16 games with the Bills but was primarily a backup as he started only four games.

However, he has been a full-time starter at times during his career, and in his first four seasons with the Rams, he started double-digit games in three of them. Now in Sean McDermott's scheme, he has a great chance to set or tie career highs in most categories like tackles (100), interceptions (4), and passes defended (8).
