Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JALEN JELKS: Oregon, 6053 256 4.93. Two year starter from Phoenix AZ. Tall lanky prospect. Somewhat raw as an edge defender. Can be tough at the point of attack with quickness at the snap and optimal hand usage. Flashes skill playing edge run with smooth lateral movement and change of direction. Pursues across the field and can make plays in space. Solid tackling skill. Tenacious pass rusher with variety in technique. Powerful bull rush using length to gain separation. Can swipe by a tackle or push-pull to create an in or outside option. Works into a tackle and can quickly bend around the corner. Lack of bulk and lower body strength causes struggles at times with physical blockers. Inconsistent working through a block versus perimeter runs at times. Needs to win early or he can get neutralized in the pass rush. Lacks the size and strength of an every down defensive lineman and has no experience in coverage as an outside linebacker. At this point his versatility is experience playing anywhere along the line. Is a long-limbed, straight-line athlete with some pop in his hands when he has a head full of steam. Needs a lot of strength development but the aggression and burst are there. There is enough versatility in his skill set to be considered an outside linebacker in some schemes. 2018 stats: 57 T, 7.5 TFL, 3.5 sacks, 1 PBU, 3 QBH, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 1.98, right 2.01. OSR:26/ 31. Fourth/fifth round. (A-34 5/8, H-9 5/8, BP-19, 10-1.71).
