2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JALYN HOLMES: Ohio State, 6047 283 4.85. A first-year starter who played in the Buckeyes’ front line rotation. From Norfolk, VA. Lined up at both defensive end and tackle in the 4-3 defensive scheme. Can turn speed to power delivering a violent punch to a blocker on contact. Plays with leverage where he can stand a man up. Excellent short area quickness. A quick twitch athlete who has long stride speed in space. Long arms, huge hands, and big time quickness. Relentless in his effort to pursue the quarterback and ball carrier. A good athlete who showcased his talent during the Senior Bowl week. The talented ex-Buckeye is still developing his skill set when it comes to coordinating his hands and feet working together. Gives effort on backside chase. He has the ability to cross a blocker’s face and make a play. Good quickness. May be more disruptive than a big time playmaker. Will struggle to come to balance at times. Uses an arsenal of club/rip, club/arm over, speed to power, and a quick spin move. Projects as a starting base end in a 4-3 or 3-4 scheme. Slides inside as a defensive tackle in sub packages. An ascending player. 2017 stats: 29 T, 3 TFL, 2 sacks, 3 PBU, 2 QBH, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 2.19, right 2.00. OSR:8/23. Third/fourth round. (A-34, H-10, BP-25, 10-1.70).
