Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DARIUS SLAYTON: Auburn, 6010 190 4.37. Fourth year junior entry and two year starter from Norcross, GA. Arrived at Auburn as an accomplished high school track athlete and enters the NFL with a very high ceiling. His speed and burst are functional and usable on the field, he is much more than a track athlete. Consistently averaged nearly 20 yards per catch over his career and displayed dominant stretches against SEC cornerbacks. He is a deep threat that will make a defense account for him at all times. While there are limitations to his game underneath and at the point of attack, this kind of deep threat and ability to extend plays after the catch is worth the risk. A true speed demon that can knife his way through a secondary at any given moment. Elite burst and acceleration with near-perfect movement aesthetics. Vertical separation is his specialty. A loose and dangly frame with the needed flexibility to naturally adjust to the ball. Strong pivot foot that can allow him to stop on a dime. Shows promise and upside as a route runner when it comes to his movement tools. Gets off the line well via agility and burst. Can miss contact by a press corner. Dangerous after the catch with a hunger for the end zone. Won’t waste time getting north. Plays a soft and timid game. Won’t always extend himself for the ball in traffic. Will shy from contact too much. Almost a non factor as a blocker. Needs to enhance his versatility as a route runner. Inconsistent ball skills and hands. Will allow the ball into his body causing a lot of double catches. Boom or bust. 2018 stats: 35-670, 19.1 ypr, 5 TD. OSR:6/42. Third/fourth round. (A-32 3/4, H-10, VJ-40.5, SS-4.16).
