Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about LAMAR JACKSON: Nebraska, 6020 208 4.59. Three-year starter, Elk Grove, CA. Second-team All-Big 10 in 2019. An imposing cornerback with unique size and length. Played boundary corner and was in press man for most reps. Can be physical with two and off-hand jam disrupting routes at the snap. Smooth turn and run for a big man. Physical play helps him stay in phase on vertical routes. Flashes mirror ability on route breaks and challenges the catch point. Finds the ball in phase and high points the interception opportunity. Productive ball skills for a press corner. Shows eye discipline in trail technique keeping focus on the receiver. Length creates issues for quarterbacks as a short zone defender. Will give up leverage at the snap at times. Has not shown great pattern recognition in limited zone reps. Recovery speed is average and can get separated. Double moves can be an issue. Gets grabby at times if beaten on a route break. Not aggressive taking on blocks and will pass up a tackle opportunity. Tends to lunge at tackles. Size makes him attractive for a team that plays a lot of press. Will need to develop as a zone corner. Senior Bowl notes: Physical presence at corner with some big hits in the game. Solid disrupting routes at the line with off-hand jam. For the most part stayed in phase on vertical routes. Struggled to mirror route breaks in practice. Was grabby at times. 2019 stats: 40 T, 3.5 TFL, 1 sack, 12 PBU, 1 QBH, 2 FF, 3 INT. OSR:24/29. Sixth/seventh round. (A-32 1/4, H-9 1/2, VJ-36.5, SS-DNP).
