Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about SAQUAN HAMPTON: Rutgers, 6012 206 4.43. First year starter from Hamilton, NJ. Missed some time with injury that shortened his sophomore and junior seasons. Became a full time starter in 2018. Hampton has the size and speed you look for in an NFL safety. He is versatile with experience in the box, on a slot, and the deep middle. Solid initial reads with a quick shuffle pedal. Normally takes good angles to the ball with solid lateral movement and agility. Quick break on the ball with the play in front of him. Has enough speed to play over the top and stay with vertical routes. Adjusts to movement moving downhill and is a consistent tackler in space. Uses his hands to ward off blocks and get through the trash to make a play. Has range in pursuit and is consistently around the ball. Decent match skill over an inside receiver with good mirror and reactions on route breaks. Flashes ball skills but tends to react to the man rather than the ball. Plays with a big cushion in the deep zones and off-man. Will give up underneath throws and just make the tackle. Has been a stellar special team player on kick coverage units. Medical history could affect draft status. Could be a big nickel candidate. Special team ability and sub package potential can help him make a team. 2018 stats: 65 T, 3 TFL, 13 PBU, 3 INT. BTR:left 5.10, right 5.09. OSR:8/24. Seventh round/PFA. (A-31 5/ 8, H-8 5/8, VJ-DNP, SS-4.29).
