Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about NATE HOBBS: Illinois, 5113 192 4.55. Four-year starter, Louisville KY. Has decent size and length for a corner and shows safety-like toughness on the perimeter. Played in a primarily zone scheme from a two high look with some Cover 3 mixed in. Often aligned with his back to the boundary, he would give different post snap looks disguising coverage. From a lateral alignment could step up and jam or lateral run to stay in phase on vertical release. He is adept as a rerouting hard corner, rarely allowing a free release and often riding a wide out to the sideline. Strong hands to control receivers with a two hand jam into a lateral sink. Good vision to see multiple routes, he covers a lot of ground closing voids. Gets underneath inside corner routes and can break to the flat release. Often bailed to a lateral run quarters and Cover 3 showing the speed to stay over the top. From a lateral run he could easily transition on inside cuts. Physical taking on stalk blocks he shows a violent push pull to shed and chase the ball. Closes quickly from a distance and drives through tackles in space. Rarely misses. Played the scheme well but NFL teams will want to see more of a back pedal and more in transition. There is some vulnerability to out cuts. Sometimes cushion is too big with his lateral run and he is late breaking on short throws. Some hip tightness shows at times in plant and drive but scheme minimizes the issue. Has made some big hits playing the ball, but overall ball production is limited in his career. His best shot is a zone heavy team that uses some Tampa two. 2020 stats: 31 T, 2 TFL, 2 PBU, 1 INT. Seventh round/PFA. (A-31 1/2, H-9 1/2, VJ-40.5, SS-4.17).
