Friend of the site, Max Strauss, recently had a chance to sit down with Miami Dolphins rookie cornerback Jamar Taylor. Here's a look at the interview.

The Miami Dolphins drafted Boise State cornerback Jamar Taylor in the second round of the NFL Draft last month. Friend of the Phinsider and head man over at ProInterviews.org had a chance to sit down with Taylor, shortly after the draft. (Note, this interview took place prior to Taylor's sports hernia surgery.)

Here's an excerpt from the interview:

Strauss : If someone asked you to compare your game to someone in the NFL, who would you say?

Taylor : I don't know. I like to compare my game a lot to Darrelle Revis. I'm not as patient as him in my press game. I have been in the past, but I try to switch it up a lot. That's definitely someone I watch, and try to mimic a lot. The guy is just so smart, and he's not afraid to tackle, and he's just so patient.

Strauss : What was your whole Draft weekend like?

Taylor : My agent thought I was going to go on Thursday. It was kind of frustrating when it ended that day, but I had great support from my family, my agent, and my girlfriend.

We woke up on Friday and said today is going to be a better day. Some teams called and said they were going to get me, and then, they passed on me. I was getting frustrated, but next thing I knew, my phone was ringing. It was a blessing from God for the Dolphins and Jeff Ireland to give me a chance to come down there. It was like I got the monkey off my back.

Strauss : You're expected to contribute immediately for the Dolphins. What are your expectations?

Taylor : My plan is to come in and learn and pick all the coaches brains until they get sick of me. Just try to learn as much as I can about the NFL, because it's so much different game than college. At the same time, I just want to have fun and make plays. Sometimes, a lot of people over-think it, but I just want to come in, learn, and ball-out to help my team win.
