Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about ANFERNEE JENNINGS: Alabama, 6021 256 4.80. Three-year starter, Dadeville, AL. First-team All-SEC in 2019. Edge defender playing primarily from a two point stance. Has some experience inside. Quick takeoff with violent hands engaging a blocker. Powerful at the point of attack using long arms to stun and separate from tight ends and interior linemen. Moves well laterally and is tough to get around on the edge. Has enough speed to peel on a back releasing and shows solid route recognition in a flat drop. Sees the threats and can get underneath an intermediate route. Quick to get his hands in the throwing lane at the line or in coverage. Physical tackler with gather and finish. Has some experience backed off and can get downhill and blitz inside gaps. Most often used as a pass rusher on pass downs and shows his power with a bull rush working to the quarterback. Has a short area burst to close on the quarterback and can adjust to movement in the pocket. Powerful to shed working around the corner keeping a tackle off balance. Has a quick inside counter move to complement edge rush. Could use more variety in his pass rush technique as he progresses. Some stiffness changing direction and lacks chase speed as the play is extended. If asked to play backed off will have a lot of development. Projects as a 3-4 outside linebacker on the edge. Some may see him as an end eventually. Senior Bowl notes: Flashed skill as an edge rusher but also had significant reps off the ball and over a tight end. Physical versus a tight end with hand use to separate and shed. Showed chase ability and range in coverage. Tackled well in space. 2019 stats: 83 T, 12.5 TFL, 8 sacks, 5 PBU, 8 QBH, 1 FF, 1 INT. Edge speed:left 2.12, right 2.07. Position drills only-his choice. Third/fourth round. (A-32 7/8, H-9 1/8, BP-DNP, SS-DNP).
