Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JOSHUAH BLEDSOE: Missouri, 5113 201 4.50. Two year starter, Houston, TX. Has been versatile lining up as an overhang player and one high safety. At his best playing overhang as he can take on blocks with a quick punch and shed on the move. Tackles well in space reacting to movement and wrapping up. Plays underneath flat coverage with quick feet and reactions on the short throw. Normally positions well on multiple routes. As a man defender shows enough speed to stay in phase and locate the ball on vertical routes. Can get to the catch point timing reactions to break up passes. In limited deep coverage shows the ability to flip his hips to get over the top. Shows range in the deep zones. At times gets too focused on the quarterback and loses positioning on multiple routes. This was more evident when asked to play deep coverage. In off-man coverage was inconsistent with cushion as he often let receivers get too close before turning or reacting. This caused him to play from behind at times. Shifty slot receivers can give him some trouble on route breaks. Has special team appeal due to his range and tackling skill. He can make an impact on kick coverage units. His versatility is attractive but might be best suited as a nickel or hybrid in sub packages. 2020 stats: 41 T, 2.5 TFL, 6 PBU, 1 FF, 1 INT. Fifth/ sixth round. (A-30 1/2, H-9 3/4, VJ-NA, SS-NA).
