Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about GENO STONE: Iowa, 5103 207 4.59. Junior entry, one-year starter, New Castle, PA. Earned second-team All-Big 10 honors in 2019. Instinctive safety with experience in one and two high coverage along with rolling down to the box as a traditional Cover 3 strong safety. At his best reacting forward. Spot on to read key using a flat foot read in quarters. Quickly transitions to a pedal on a vertical release and is like a missile firing downhill in run support. Tracks well and can slip blocks on the move. Cuts off back side runs with disciplined downhill path. Has speed to chase across the field. Secure fundamental tackler that can lay a hit. Outstanding pattern read zone defender. Uncanny ability to process route combinations. Doesn’t cover grass when initial key disappears. Immediately looks for work closing gaps in coverage. Sudden to react on the quarterback delivery key and gets to the catch. Limits gains on short throws underneath. When playing the short flat consistently gets in the throwing lane causing quarterbacks to come off. Limited man to man experience but can match inside receivers vertical routes in quarters. Range in deep zones is solid but he doesn’t make a lot of plays in deep coverage. Doesn’t have ideal length for a safety that limits ball production. Some hip tightness and has average lateral agility. Will not always see crack blocks coming downhill and has been washed out of plays. His off the chart instincts and special teams potential should get him a job. 2019 stats: 70 T, 3 TFL, 1 sack, 4 PBU, 2 QBH, 3 FF, 1 INT. OSR:20/24. Fourth/fifth round. (A-29 1/4, H-9 1/8, VJ-33.5, SS-DNP).
