Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TUF BORLAND: Ohio State, 6001 229 5.00. Three year starter, Bolingbrook, IL. A smart and instinctive prospect who has been a leader on the talented Buckeyes’ defense. More than adequate ability to read keys his run fits are usually quick and precise. Moves well laterally with solid angles to the ball from alley to alley. Quick to shoot his hands when confronted by a blocker, he flashes the ability to slip blocks on the move. Often used on inside blitzes he anticipates the snap and can get inside penetration. Fundamentally sound tackler he gathers and drives through tackles. Disciplined in zone pass drops, his key reactions get him quickly into his drop and proper depth. Sees pattern pressure and positions properly on multiple routes. Quick to break on short underneath throw but does not make a lot of plays on the ball. More tackles after the catch. Range in coverage is limited as fast receivers can run by him. Has a tough time catching up to crossing routes. Lacks consistent range to the perimeter and will under run the corner at times. Struggles with cutbacks in space and will overrun the ball as change of direction is limited. Can get covered up by interior linemen and lacks the ability to consistently shed blocks inline. At times he’s been an easy blocking target for athletic offensive linemen. He lost ball side leverage on blocks and was sealed off. A quality college football player who may lack the speed and overall athletic ability to make an NFL team. That said if he can play special teams he may find a role as a two down backup in the right scheme. 2020 stats: 48 T, 3.5 TFL, 1.5 sacks. Seventh round/PFA. (A-31, H-10, BP-15, SS-4.30, VJ-32.5).
