What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about JEFF GLADNEY before he made the Minnesota Vikings' Depth Chart: TCU, 5102 191 4.48. Four-year starter, New Boston, TX. Was first-team All-Big 12 in 2019. Has played press and off coverage in zone as well as man to man. Played boundary corner and often aligned in press using different techniques. Most often reactive in press man with a quick backpedal to keep a tight cushion. Able to stay in his backpedal by adjusting to speed of receivers release. Quick feet and lateral agility to mirror route breaks. Flashes a stiff off-hand jam on turn and run. Stays in phase on vertical routes for the most part. Has recovery quickness and speed. Stays tight on a receiver’s hip and can get his hand inside on the ball. Sudden plant and drive on short throws underneath. Gets a read on the quarterback and receivers in zone. As a hard corner solid jam and re-route on release. Balances high low routes with ability to get under the intermediate throw. Attacks stalk blocks on screens with his hands and is a willing wrap up tackler. Has been used effectively to blitz from the boundary. Occasionally overruns deep comeback route and struggles to re-direct. Can stay in his pedal too long instead of turning and running. As a result can get off balance reacting to intermediate route breaks. Can miss a tackle in space at times. Some teams may have concerns with slender build but overall has the making of a solid starter for the right team. 2019 stats: 31 T, 1.5 TFL, .5 sack, 14 PBU, 1 INT. OSR:22/29. Second/third round. (A-31 7/8, H-9, VJ-37.5, SS-DNP).
