Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about JORDAN TA'AMU: Mississippi, 6025 221 4.75. Two year starter from Pearl City, HI. If you want to win a bar bet before the 2019 Draft, ask a patron who led the SEC in passing last fall. If the patron says Jordan Ta’amu he would be correct. With quarterbacks like Lock, Tagovailoa, Stidham, Shurmur, and Fitzgerald grabbing headlines, Ta’amu averaged 326.5 yards per game. He also had a salty 9.4 yards per attempt. The live-armed passer had some big time receivers catch his passes, but he is accurate and demonstrates good touch and ball placement. He throws the ball to the open receiver, tight end, or running back. Hangs in the pocket despite his ability to scramble and escape. Does a good job faking the run on play action passes then fires the ball suddenly to his target. The strong armed passer has a fast ball when he needs it on slants, deep comebacks, and dig routes. Makes good decisions checking down the ball as needed. Can make all the NFL type passes. Completed seven of 10 passes for 98 yards in the East-West Shrine game. Played in the Rebels’ spread offense, but adjusted well under center the week of the Shrine game. Has a smooth and quick delivery and the athletic ability to extend plays. A developing size/speed prospect who is a consistent producer. 2018 stats: 266/418, 3918 yds, 63.6%, 19 TD, 8 INT, 342 yds rushing, 6 TD, 153.5 QB rating. Ball velocity 56 mph. OSR:9/16. Fifth/sixth round. (A-32 1/4, H-9 7/8, SS-4.41, VJ-27.5).
