THE BRONX - Fordham Rams? linebacker Marcus Taylor has been invited to Minnesota Vikings? rookie minicamp as a safety this week.

The 2007 Patriot League defensive player of the year led the Rams in tackles. He feels that his work ethic will make up for a switch in position.

?Everybody has that dream of making it into the NFL?It?s just an exciting time for me and my family,? Taylor said. He said a lot of people don?t get the kind of opportunity he has been given. ?I?m really going to make the best of it,? he said.

Taylor is the first Fordham Rams football player to have a chance in rookie minicamp since Aki Jones did it with the Washington Redskins two years ago.
