Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about CAMERON DANTZLER: Mississippi State, 6022 188 4.59. Junior entry, two-year starter, Hammond, LA. Missed three games due to injury but still led the team in passes defended and interceptions. Tall lanky corner with fluid movement and functional speed. Has toughness and some safety-like characteristics. Aggressive against the run and flashed tackling skill. Can make plays in space. Will blitz off the corner and closes with a burst. Uses a variety of technique including press and off man. Patient with initial read, smooth turn into a lateral run. Solid in all transitions. As a zone defender gets a read on the quarterback and can balance high low routes in the outside zone. Quick break on the ball gets him in position to make plays. Ignores the first move away from leverage in press and can use an off-hand stab to disrupt a route up field. Sticky to mirror cuts and stays in the hip pocket. Can undercut a route break to make a play. Uses his height well to out leap receivers for the ball. Excellent ball skills for the interception. Can recover when separated and can make plays even when a step behind. Has made some outstanding plays coming from behind. Attacks the catch point and can rip a ball out. Mirrors cuts well but occasionally will get separated. Will lose eye discipline at times in man cover and gets in recovery mode. Some vulnerability to double moves. Can get stuck on a block getting upright. Tends to go low or lunge on tackles rather than gather and drive. Forty time wasn’t up to par, but length and ball skills have gotten teams’ attention. 2019 stats: 40 T, 2 TFL, .5 sack, 8 PBU, 1 FF, 2 INT. OSR:26/29. Second/third round. (A-30 5/8, H-9, VJ-34.5, SS-DNP).
