Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about MARSHON LATTIMORE: Ohio State, 6000 193 4.37. Underclass entry from Cleveland, OH. One-year starter who was sidelined by injury as a true freshman in 2014. In 2015 the elite cover corner played in seven games, missing the final five contests with chronic hamstring problems. A first-team All-Big 10 selection by the coaches this past fall. Raw but has elite ability. Extremely quick in his reactions with sudden change of direction and no wasted movement. Good size and speed, but needs strength development. Excels in man coverage with quick reaction to cuts. Stays on the hip and does not lose leverage. Mirrors routes well. Good at cutting off a route and reacting to the throw. Stays in phase on vertical routes and is very difficult to throw over. Good ball skills. Good hands to pluck the ball. Shows good speed to cover vertical routes. Best in press man, but has some experience in off man. Okay in zone coverage but is not the most aware with route recognition. Has recovery quickness and burst. Explosive in run support but is an inconsistent tackler. In most scenarios, the lack of career experience and injury woes would be enough to really bump a player’s grade down. However the 20-year old Lattimore could make a case that he has the most impressive blend of tools and skills within this deep cornerback class. The size, speed, and ball skills are all top notch and he can fit into any coverage scheme or role. The upside is through the roof here as long as his hamstrings can be trusted. 2016 stats: 41 T, 4 INT, 9 PBU. Medical exclusion at Combine, shoulder and hip flexor. OSR:3/ 35. First round. (A-31 1/4, H-8 7/8, VJ-38.5, SS-DNP).
