2022 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about QUENTIN LAKE:
UCLA, 6011 201 4.59. Four-year starter, Irvine, CA. First-team All-Pac 12 in 2021. Son of former UCLA and All-Pro NFL defensive back Carnell Lake. Played in a multiple coverage scheme putting him at one and two high along with playing the box strong safety in Cover three. Best suited as a quarters or off the hash Cover two safety. Good football IQ. He has vision to process route combinations and balance multiple threats. Has decent ball skills and reacts well on the throw. Locates the ball and battles at the catch point. Has soft hands for interception opportunities. Can match tight ends in quarters and is solid reacting to flat/post and dig combinations. Can get to the same level as a wide receiver coming over the middle. When close to the line or in the alley usually squares up, wraps and drags a ball carrier. Has some trouble with angles moving downhill from distance and can lose a tackle in the alley or perimeter. Occasionally loses leverage and misses a tackle. Reactions can be slow in quarters creating too much space for runners in the alley. Agility is average and some hip tightness shows redirecting laterally. Lacks the range to consistently play one high. Lacks elite athletic ability and physicality, but does most things well enough as to not be a liability. Has played special teams and could find a home as a backup and special team player.
