2019 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about ADARIUS PICKETT: UCLA, 5107 200 4.60. Two year starter from Richmond, CA. Played a hybrid nickel role in the UCLA defense and was most often aligned at linebacker depth in the box or covering down on a slot receiver. Has time as flat foot read quarter safety over a tight end. Active player with linebacker like instincts. Aggressive attacking blocks using his hands to stun, separate, and shed. Solid form tackling skill with knee bend and leg drive to finish. Consistent containing on the perimeter without opening an inside running lane. Can work back inside and get in on a play. Chases well in backside pursuit showing consistent hustle. Disciplined to check cutbacks and flow to the ball. Second effort gets him to a lot of tackles across the field. As a quarter safety takes good angles to the ball and gets downhill in a hurry with good tracking ability. Quick with run/pass read and is smooth getting into a flat drop. Reads routes with good route awareness. Gets under inside cuts by wide receivers staying in the throwing lane. Plays under intermediate routes and plants and closes on short throws with a nice burst. Can run with a tight end up the seam on a vertical route. Has had some time in deep zone coverage and shows range but this has not been a strength. Some hesitancy reacting and flipping his hips reacting to double cuts. Can give up too much room in deep coverage. Led all defensive backs in the country in tackles. Shrine Game participant. 2018 stats: 123 T, 4 PBU, 2 INT. Not invited to Combine. Seventh round/PFA. (A-30 5/8, H-9 1/4, VJ-28, SS-4.16).
