Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JOSH MALONE: Tennessee, 6026 208 4.42. Three-year starter from Gallatin, TN. Long arms with big hands and a track star type downfield speed. Has the long, gazelle type strides once he gets going that can take the top off a secondary. Fluid vertical mover. Can get to balls away from his body. Tracks and adjusts to the ball well. Shows quality hand strength, can control the ball on contact. Smart route runner, times his breaks well. Sets up defensive backs. Savvy. Slender frame that lacks any sort of staying power against press coverage. Too easily jostled by a good jam. Poor acceleration off the line. Takes too long to get going. High hipped, slow to change direction. Doesn’t consistently gain separation underneath. Former blue chip recruit didn’t make much of an impact until 2016, where he proved to be a deep threat. Averaged nearly 20 yards per catch with 11 touchdowns as a junior. His long speed is a threat that any defense will have to account for. There is a lot that needs work here, however. His short area quickness and strength are major negatives. High ceiling but it may take him awhile. 2016 stats: 50-972, 19.4 ypr, 11 TD. OSR:20/60. Sixth/ seventh round. (A-31 3/8, H-9 5/8, VJ-30.5, SS-4.19).
