Note: Each day during camp, we’ll take a look at one of the former Boise State football players in the NFL. The full list is here.

Former Boise State cornerback Jamar Taylor could get extensive playing time in the first four games this season — a chance for him to prove himself to coaches.

The Dolphins will be without star safety Reshad Jones for the first four games because of a failed drug test. The Miami Herald suggests that the Dolphins will move nickel corner Jimmy Wilson to Jones’ spot at safety.

That would open the door for Taylor to play the nickel corner spot. The Herald says Taylor has had a strong training camp.

Taylor struggled with injuries during his rookie year. He played in nine games and made three tackles.

He told me in April in Boise that he’s ready to compete for a key job with the Dolphins.

“We’ve got a lot of competition but I’m not scared of competition,” he said. “May the best man win. I played with a lot of great DBs here. I’m healthy and ready to take over the world. That’s my plan.”
