Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about JOSIAH TAUAEFA: Texas-San Antonio, 6010 240 4.80. Junior entry and three year starter from Corinth, TX. Has played defensive end and linebacker, settling at inside linebacker this past season. Looks the part, has size and strength needed to play inside. Somewhat deliberate with his initial read but is quick to attack reacting downhill. Normally plays with a high motor and throws himself into blocks at the point of attack. Chases across the field and is around the ball a lot. Solid blitz skill with a burst to close in the backfield. Has made some big hits. Powerful tackler often dropping a ball carrier on contact. Question instincts as he will have trouble locating the ball. The run/pass option concept gave him problems as he struggled to redirect. Stiff to change directions and will false step at times. Slow to get his hands up versus a block he struggles to shed and at times his own momentum takes him out of the play. Angles to the ball are inconsistent and can lose leverage. Will miss tackles in space by launching and not gathering. Inconsistent in zone coverage as he can be slow to process run/pass read. Raw in technique. A switch to 3-4 outside backer might be in order. Special teams potential should help. 2018 stats: 111 T, 11.5 TFL, 4.5 sacks, 3 QBH, 2 FF. Not invited to Combine. Seventh round/PFA. (A-NA, H-NA, BPDNP, SS-DNP).
