Cam Taylor-Britt has risen from one of the best athletes in his recruiting class into one of the most promising young cornerbacks in the NFL. As a senior at Park Crossing High School in Montgomery, Alabama, Cam was one of the top quarterbacks in the state posting 2,496 yards of total offense and 30 total touchdowns en route to being named to the Alabama Sports Writers Association Class 6A AllState First Team. As a three-star recruit and one of the top athletes in his class, Cam committed to the University of Nebraska.

As a true freshman in the 2018 season, Cam converted to cornerback and played in 11 games contributing on both defense and special teams while learning the intricacies of the position. He ended the season with 12 total tackles, three pass breakups, and a fumble recovery. In 2019, he became a versatile and productive member of the Cornhusker secondary as he started 10 games at both safety and cornerback totaling 49 tackles, 4 TFL’s, 1.5 sacks, 3 interceptions, 2 pass breakups, and 4 forced fumbles. Cam’s versatility and his ability to stuff the stat sheet led to him being named to the Honorable Mention All-Big Ten team. He continued to improve as a junior in 2020 where he totaled 28 tackles, 3 TFL’S, 4 pass breakups, two interceptions. 

He led his team in passes defended and was also their leading punt returner averaging more than 13 yards per return which led to his selection as a member of the Second Team All-Big Ten team. As a team captain in 2021, Cam closed out his collegiate career by posting career highs in tackles with 51 and pass breakups with 11, to go along with 1 interception and 1 blocked kick. He was once again named a Second Team All-Big Ten selection and invited to showcase his talents at the Reese’s Senior Bowl. After declaring for the 2022 NFL Draft, Cam exploded on the pre-draft circuit where he displayed his athleticism and fluidity at both the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine by running a blazing 4.38 40-yard dash and showcasing a 33.5 inch vertical. These athletic feats combined with his collegiate performace led to his selection in the second round of the 2022 NFL draft at the 60th overall pick by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Cam quickly became an integral part of the Bengals secondary after being activated from injured reserve on October 8, 2022, as he went on to start 12 of the next 13 games, including all three of Cincinnati’s playoff games. Cam finished his rookie season with 66 tackles, 9 passes defended, 1 forced fumble, and 1 game-changing interception, which came against the Buffalo Bills to close out the game in the Divisional Round of the playoffs to help the Bengals reach the AFC Conference Championship game. Cam’s rookie year performance shows how well his athleticism translates to his success at NFL level thus far. His trajectory is on an upward momentum as he goes into his second season as a key member of the Cincinnati Bengals defense.
