Ourlads' Profile:

2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about MARQUEZ VALDES-SCANTLING: South Florida, 6040 206 4.39. Three-year starter including one year at North Carolina State. From St. Petersburg, FL. The elite combination of speed, size and athleticism makes him an intriguing prospect with a potentially high ceiling. Has all the physical attributes scouts look for. His smooth and easy acceleration eats into defensive backs’ cushion versus off man coverage. Creates separation with speed and acceleration downfield. Tracks the deep ball with good burst. Very dangerous with the ball in his hands. Used on reverses with scoring success. Good vision after the catch and is a home run threat when he has space to run. Big hands. Inconsistent routes. Needs route release work in general. Comes off the line high exposing his chest to the defensive back. Didn’t have a lot of production in his career, nor a lot of consistent quarterback play. Needs to work more on attacking the football with his length. Doesn’t drive back to the ball with instincts on stop or curl routes. Has focus drops at times. Overall he is a rare blend of size, speed and athletic ability with a high ceiling. He is bright kid who will work to get better and should be able to contribute on special teams while he learns how to run the full route tree and develop his ball skills. 2017 stats: 53-879, 16.6 ypr, 6 TD. OSR:6/45. Fourth/fifth round. (A-32 1/4, H-10, VJ-30.5, SS-DNP).
