2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JEREMY REAVES: South Alabama, 5105 204 4.52. Three-year starter from Pensacola, FL. Had significant playing time as a freshman. Played all over in the South Alabama secondary with experience at corner, safety, and the rover position which is equivalent to the nickel or hybrid. Undersized but he plays with a tough, aggressive style. Non-stop motor with great range and angles to the ball. When playing over a tight end can adjust on the move and make plays on cutbacks in the box. Launches himself into tackles and can drop a ball carrier in his tracks. Explosive with proper fundamental tackling form. Effective working through a block in pursuit. In coverage is effective in the short zones with quick feet to get into a flat drop. Sudden plant and drive with the play in front of him. As a half safety he can balance vertical routes and drive to get over the top to the ball. Shows skill as a press corner using an off-hand jam to disrupt a route. Bail technique is fluid with quick lateral burst. Smooth turn and run on the deep vertical with the playing speed to stay in phase. Shows a good understanding of defending route concepts as he sees the threats and the quarterback. Looks for work and has made interceptions in the void of a zone. Reacts well with the ball in the air and has nifty hands for the interception. Has match-up skill and can mirror and cut off routes. He doesn’t have a large frame or length. Can be overaggressive and bite on a play fake. This can also lead to missed tackles and poor fits in the alley or gap. Occasionally washed out of a play by an angle block. He should be a productive special teams’ player on coverage teams. That combined with his versatility will give him a chance to contribute right away in sub packages. In the right scheme he can be a full-time starter in various packages. 2017 stats: 104 T, 7 TFL, 1.5 sacks, 8 PBU, 1 QBH, 3 FF, 1 FR, 3 INT. Sixth/seventh round. (A-30 3/8, H-7 3/4, VJ-DNP, SS-DNP).
