On April 24, 2004, the Washington Redskins took Miami Hurricanes safety Sean Taylor with the fifth overall pick in the NFL Draft. Taylor, of course, went on to become a force in Washington's secondary until his tragic death on November 27, 2007.

To commerate the 15th anniversary of his selection, we've picked out our five favorite moments from Taylor's time as a Redskin. Even if you disagree with some of our choices, we can all agree it was a joy to watch Taylor play in the Burgundy and Gold.

1. Epic hit on Bills punter Brian Moorman in 2006 Pro Bowl

2. Fumble return TD in 2005 playoff game against Buccaneers
