2019 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about DAMARKUS LODGE: Mississippi, 6017 202 4.54. Two year starter from Cedar Hill, TX. Lodge is a possession receiver that struggles and will continue to struggle when it comes to separation on all levels. However he can somewhat offset that with his toughness and ball skills when defenders are draped all over him. Has the fighter-mentality that an accurate and brave quarterback can trust when he isn’t open. While his twitch and looseness may keep the ceiling low, he will enter the league with a skill set that can get him in the mix right away. Solid, strong body with a long frame. A tough and physical hands catcher that attacks the ball. Reaches a lot of throws away from his body with suddenness and twitch. High points the ball and will make the spectacular catch near boundaries. Very space-aware. Trusts his footwork and pays attention to the nuances of route running. Can change gears and won’t forecast his intentions. Has a tight end-type approach after the catch. Breaks tackles and looks for contact, can stiff arm his way to extra yards consistently. Slow and high off the line. Needs to improve the initial movement and intentions post-snap. Long speed and the extra gear to track down a slightly overthrown ball isn’t there. Looks tight and requires a lot of effort to change direction, often needing the extra step. Unplanned movement and adjustment looks difficult. 2018 stats: 65-877, 13.5 ypr, 4 TD. OSR:33/42. Fifth/sixth round. (A-33 1/8, H-9 1/2, VJ-33.5, SS-4.55).
