Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JAMES WIGGINS: Cincinnati, 6000 207 4.42. Two year starter, Miami, FL. Has experience in a variety of coverage and has played both in the box and as a deep safety. Quick and aggressive he shows outstanding range in coverage and pursuit. Smooth pedal with sudden change of direction. No wasted movement. Tracks moving downhill and adjusts well to movement. Angles to the ball are solid. Generally a secure wrap tackler he can lay a hit at times. Gets in on a lot of tackles in run support. Fluid in transition he easily flips his hips to get over the top as a one or two high safety. An excellent zone defender with outstanding awareness. He consistently looks for work, closing voids in short and deep zones. Balances multiple routes and gets a good read on the quarterback’s delivery key. Excellent reactions to receiver and the ball, he is quick to plant and close with the ball in the air. Has separated receivers from the ball with a big hit. As a box safety has shown the ability to match a  slot with mirror ability and the speed to handle a vertical release. Shows outstanding ball skills with ability to challenge the catch point. Has shown some inconsistency in run support with an occasional missed tackle. Will lunge at times instead of gathering and finishing. Has shown occasional hesitancy reacting but for the most part he is in position to make plays. He missed the 2019 season with a torn ACL but came back strong this past season. 2020 stats: 32 T, 1 TFL, 1 sack, 6 PBU, 1 FF, 1 INT. Fourth/fifth round. (A-29, H-9 3/4, VJ-38, SS-NA).
