Sean Taylor was born April, 1 1983 which is today and he would be 35 years old. Football fans across the country are showing the former NFL star a lot of love today. Taylor died on November 27, 2007 after a robbery attempt in his home. His death curtailed what could have been an amazing football career.

But before we go there let’s take a look at some of his college highlights.
The sad part about all of this is what could have been. The young man had so much potential before his untimely death at the young age of 24. Think of that for a second Taylor was only 24 years old when he died. He had an entire career waiting for him.
For a a guy who was the size of a middle linebacker and had speed of a fast cornerback, Taylor was a terror in the defensive backfield. Here are some of his pro highlights.
Just imagine if Taylor actually had a defensive minded coach developing his skills when he was in the pros?!
Here is a guy that could have changed the game kind of what Lawrence Taylor did in the 1980s. All of this however, would be only speculation. We will never know the greatness of Sean Taylor which really is the tragedy. We can only celebrate his life when he was here. So happy birthday Sean Taylor, you are missed by sports fans across the country.
