We are learning that former Ferris State wide receiver Malik Taylor will attend the Indianapolis Colts veteran mini camp this weekend.
He was given a shot by the Tampa Bay Buccaneera after the draft.
Taylor missed most of his senior campaign last fall due to injury after garnering preseason recognition as one of the nation’s top wideouts. He returned late in the year during FSU’s playoff run to the NCAA Division II National Championship game and finished the year with seven catches for 88 yards and score, including a key touchdown grab in Ferris State’s national semifinal win at Minnesota State.
As a junior in 2017, Taylor caught a team-high 61 passes for 906 yards and six touchdowns as the Bulldogs reached the NCAA Division II National Quarterfinals. The three-year starter also ranked as the team’s leading receiver in 2016 when FSU advanced to the D2 National Semifinals by catching 47 balls for 1,017 yards and five scores. He appeared in nine games while making six grabs for 80 yards as a freshman following a redshirt campaign.
Overall, Taylor’s 2,091 total receiving yards at Ferris State ranks seventh in school history as he made 121 total catches in a Bulldog uniform while also ranking as one of the squad’s top return men on special teams.
He is a big bodied wide out who is very similar to Colts wide out Chester Rogers.
