Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JAKE BUTT: Michigan, 6054 246 4.80. Four-year starter from Pickerington, OH. A team captain who was named to the All-America team in 2016 and 2015. An every down player in a pro style offense. The torn ACL he suffered during the 2017 Orange Bowl may delay the start of his career, but the talent is there to contribute quickly when he returns. Good frame and toughness for the position. He won’t have the top position specifics in any category, but he will be above average in everything. Butt makes the overlooked and key big plays to win games and to keep the chains moving. Comes down in traffic with the ball more times than not and will break tackles after the catch. He is a load for defensive backs to tackle and bring to the ground. Has the ability to be an immediate starter in the league and factor in on all three downs. Needs to develop more power and core strength as a blocker. Struggles at times to latch onto a defensive end. Lacks a burst after catch. An eventual starter with developmental time. 2016 stats: 46- 546, 11.9 ypr, 4 TD. Medical exclusion at Combine, right knee ACL. Third/fourth round. (A-32, H-10, VJ-DNP, SS-DNP).
