Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JEHU CHESSON: Michigan, 6015 204 4.49. Two-year starter from St. Louis, MO. Good sized frame and long arm length. Good vertical leaping ability. Very instinctive football player who is valuable in all phases of the game. Can effectively cover kicks, block punts, and provide a spark in the return game. Good patience and savvy to set up defenders on deeper routes and execute double moves. Uses good route stems and effective body positioning to win the play downfield. Has long speed and ability to stride away from defenders. Good balance and vision with ball in hands but possesses only average acceleration. Good upper body strength and strong hands to fight for jump balls. High points and attacks the ball when in the air. Tough enough and willing to go across the middle of the field to make catch in traffic. Gives good effort in the run blocking game. Needs improvement on footwork to get off the press at the line of scrimmage. Wasn’t able to create great separation out of route breaks. Lacks functional route strength. Will have to improve hand techniques to fight off stronger corners throughout the course of the route. Not a homerun dangerous threat after the catch. Knee injury recovery plagued his senior season in general, wasn’t as competitive on film throughout the year as he was in 2015. Had a stronger junior season where he became the second player in the last 20 years to record 200 yards and four receiving touchdowns in a game. Chesson showed up to the Combine healthy and put on a good display of athleticism that was seen during 2015. However his frame, catch radius, and top end speed make him a high ceiling potential wide receiver two that should be picked on day two of the draft. Will contribute on special teams’ coverage units. 2016 stats: 35-500, 14.3 ypr, 2 TD. OSR:7/60. Second/third round. (A-33 1/4, H-9 1/8, VJ-35.5, SS-4.10).
