Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about KARL JOSEPH: West Virginia, 5095 205 4.55. Four-year starter from Orlando, FL. Played safety in a 3-5-3 defensive scheme. Only played in four games last fall after suffering an ACL injury in his right knee. He was one of the top returning secondary tacklers in the country with 264 hits at the start of 2015. Holds the school record of 8 forced fumbles. One of the hardest hitting safeties in the country running through his target. A big compete guy who is willing to force the action. A physical take-on player who uses his hands well to shed and ward off blocks. Stays on his feet. Can play off a blocker in the open field and make the tackle. Keeps good position on his assignment. Can turn and run with no delay. At the time of his injury he had corralled five interceptions in only four games. A high impact player who is out of control at times going for the splash hit and misses more than his share of tackles. He needs to gear down, break down, and wrap up. Smothered receivers in college with his hands-on approach, but will have to clean that up to play on Sundays. May start the season on PUP or NFI, but a full recovery is expected. 2015 stats: 20 T, 2 TFL, 5 INT, 1 PBU in four games. Medical exclusion at Combine, right knee. Fourth/fifth round. (A-32 1/8, H-9 3/4, VJ-DNP, SS-DNP).
