2022 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about DERION KENDRICK:

Georgia, 5114 194 4.55. Three-year starter, Rock Hill, SC. Transferred from Clemson for the 2021 season. Has played on national championship teams at two different schools. Transitioned to corner from wide receiver in 2019. Fluid athlete with excellent athleticism. Movement skills are a strength as he can quickly pedal in off coverage and easily changes direction in lateral transitions. Maintains cushion and spacing on receivers and has a smooth turn and run. Closes space well and is rarely out of position. Shows ability in press man coverage with mirror ability and enough speed to stay in phase with most receivers. As a zone defender shows the ability to balance multiple routes and read the quarterback. As a deep outside corner can lateral run quickly to close on a deep corner route from the inside. As a former receiver, shows hands for the interception and when in position can make plays on the ball. Quick to break on the throw with the play in front. Willing tackler but struggles to take on a stalk block and is easily moved out. Struggles working against physical receivers in press. Needs to be more consistent transitioning from speed in pedal to getting into a lateral run. He is vulnerable to turning a receiver loose in the deep outside. Some of that is speed and some is timing on turn and run. Gets beat over the top more than you like. Kendrick is a solid athlete but functional speed is questionable. With his style of play he could project to nickel in the right scheme. At Clemson he was an outstanding returner and could make a team as a sub package corner and special team player. The tools are there but will have to play in the right scheme.

2021 stats: 41 T, 2 TFL, 3 PBU, 4 INT. Fourth/fifth round. (A-31, H-9 1/8, VJ-31, SS-DNP).
