Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JAYRON KEARSE: Clemson, 6040 216 4.58. Junior entry from Ft. Myers, FL. Two-year starter. Named second-team All-ACC. Has good triangle numbers and athletic ability for the box safety position. A good hitter who is always around the ball. Good ball skills. May project as an outside linebacker for some teams because he has some lower body stiffness for a safety, but can turn for a linebacker. He matches up well to tight ends. Will not turn down a big hit. Decent instincts. Better in close quarters. Struggles as an open field tackler. Will have to excel on special teams to make a ball club because of his lower body stiffness which hinders him as an open field tackler. May fit into certain sub packages. Nephew of Jevon Kearse, former Eagle and Titan. Cousin of former NFL corner Phillip Buchanon. 2015 stats: 62 T, 6.5 TFL, 6 PBU, 3 QBH, 1 FF, 1 blocked kick. BTR:left 4.74, right 4.73. OSR:6/17. Fifth/sixth round. (A-34 1/4, H-9 5/8, VJ-31.5, SS-DNP).
