Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about DARNAY HOLMES: UCLA, 5096 195 4.47. Three-year starter, Pasadena, Cal. Honorable mention All-Pac 12 the past two seasons. Has experience in off and press man as well as with outside zone coverage. As a press corner mixed it up between reactive and jam. Could be physical with jam. Also flashed quick reacting to route breaks. Has the speed to stay in phase on vertical routes. In off coverage has a smooth pedal and can be sudden to break on the ball. Sees threats in zone and can close voids. Has ball skills to get his hand inside on the catch. Solid tacking skill with some pop and finish. Struggles with double moves and can be slow processing route breaks. Will guess at times and be badly out of position. Vulnerable to quick route stems at the snap in press. Slow to recover when beaten. Double moves and lack of length have hurt in the red zone. Shows some tightness flipping his hips. Lacks length to make plays coming from behind. Has speed and foot quickness but has some limitations which teams will have to address. Will compete for a backup spot and could be a sub package corner in the right scheme. Senior Bowl notes: Got a lot of reps at nickel and was at his best there. Matched tight ends and slots and showed a physical demeanor. Had good positioning in flat coverage. Showed tackling skill. Outside he was smooth to turn and run and quick to close. 2019 stats: 34 T, 1 TFL, 6 PBU, 2 INT. OSR:20/29. Sixth/seventh round. (A-29 1/2, H-9 1/4, VJ-DNP, SS-DNP).
