Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about AMANI ORUWARIYE: Penn State, 6015 205 4.47. First year as a full time starter from Tampa, FL. Has outstanding length and physical attributes for the position. Has experience in hard corner zone and deep outside zone. Plays both off and press man. When playing off has a controlled backpedal to maintain cushion. As a press corner is reactive at the snap letting his footwork and body position maintain leverage. Patient to ignore first move away from his leverage. Can turn and run and stay in phase up the field. Mirrors routes in press and trail and stays in the throwing lane. Will use his long arms to lock a receiver out on the sideline on an outside release. Effective in hard corner playing under deeper routes and up to the shallow. Length makes him difficult to throw over. In deep outside zone, processes pattern pressure and gets in position to balance routes. Shows good eye discipline seeing the quarterback and receiver. Ball skills are top notch. Attacks the catch point and can go up and get it. Wins most jump balls when in phase. Battles and high points the ball. Willing in run support and can lay a hit. Long arms keep stalk blocks at bay. Has some hip tightness and it shows in off coverage. At times gives up a lot of room and struggles to plant and drive on quick throws in front of him. Will false step on his break at times. Struggles with extended routes with multiple breaks. Still a developing player but his outstanding length and ball skills compensate for some of his deficiencies. A scheme specific corner. 2018 stats: 51 T, 2 TFL, 12 PBU, 1 FF, 3 INT. BTR:left 4.91, right 5.18. OSR:14/33. Second/third round. (A-31 3/8, H-9, VJ-36.5, SS-4.18).
