Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about JEREMIAH DINSON: Auburn, 5111 189 4.50. Three-year starter, Miami, FL. Was a corner his first two years starting at nickel as a sophomore. Made the successful transition to safety and broke out with solid production in 2019. Has experience in the box as a match and flat defender but spent most of his time as a quarter, half and one high safety. Fluid backpedal with plenty of cushion. Tracks well moving downhill adjusting to movement. Secure fundamental tackling skill. Gathers and drops ball carriers in their tracks. Opens up to get over the top of vertical routes in deep coverage. Balances seam and outside routes and is quick to flip his hips reacting to the ball. Solid match skill in quarters staying in phase with an inside receiver. Can cover most tight ends and slots up the field. Doesn’t get beat deep but cushion can be too big at times and gives up too much room underneath. Can be a little sticky changing directions in short space. At times gets separated on route breaks covering a quick receiver. Has ball skills at the catch point but can lose battles with tall receivers. Makes more tackles at the catch than plays on the ball. Not the best size for a deep safety but offers versatility. Injury history could be a factor. Shrine Bowl notes: Appeared a little mechanical in initial movements but was quick reacting. Sudden break and drive on throws in front of him. Quick lateral transitions put him in position on intermediate throws. Has ball skills and can get to the catch point in deep coverage. Had some trouble matched up and was a step late at times. 2019 stats: 88 T, 4.5 TFL, 2 sacks, 1 PBU, 1 FF, 2 INT. Not invited to Combine. Seventh round/PFA. (A-31 5/8, H-9 1/2, VJ-DNP, SS-DNP).
