Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JESSE JAMES: Penn State, 6070 261 4.78. Junior entry from Glassport, PA. Long frame with good height and reach. Reliable underneath receiver who creates massive matchup problems. James is a weapon on third downs and near the end zone because of his body awareness and ability to get open enough. He is a tough cover in traffic and has proven to be a guy who can come down with a lot of passes when surrounded by defenders. Good athletic ability. Can position his large and lengthy frame to shield the defender from making a play on the ball. Reliable and tough in traffic. Willingly puts his body on the line. Strong and reliable hands. Quick acceleration when running up the seam. Savvy with the ball in his hands, good vision and tough to bring down for a lone defender. Works hard as a blocker, takes pride in that part of the position’s role. Can bend well and get his hands inside. 2014 stats: 38-396, 10.4 ypr, 3 TD. OSR:3/13. Fourth/fifth round. (A-33, H-9 3/8, BP-26, VJ-37.5).
