Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DAMONTAE KAZEE: San Diego State, 5102 184 4.54. Three-year starter from San Bernardino, CA. Two-time Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year. Has recorded 17 career interceptions. A light-footed, smart cover corner who has a tendency to guess rather than anticipate. He sits hard on short routes. Has the ability to recover. His size and lack of experience hurts him in press situations. Gets into trouble at times guessing and sitting on routes. Size will hurt him on Sundays when he gets beat and the receiver is six inches taller. Good and smooth pedal, good downhill transition. Will struggle to find the ball in vertical situations. Excels at finding the ball when coming out of transitions. Transitions well from pedal, lateral run and full turn. Fluid hips. Gets his hands on a lot of balls and knows how to finish. A stronger run defender who plays bigger than his listed size. Will need to get stronger to make an impact at the point of attack. Excelled in creating turnovers and playing a tougher than expected run defense. Kazee may be restricted to slot duty in the NFL because of a lack of long speed, but he can cover and if he learns to anticipate instead of guess he has a solid future. Limited but effective in his role. Senior Bowl notes: Good initial movement with quick steps in his backpedal. Good hands and ball skills. Reads the target receiver and quarterback well in zone coverage. Will lose phase with the receiver on vertical routes. Extended speed is a question observing him in one-on-one coverage. 2016 stats: 65 T, 3 TFL, 15 PBU, 7 INT. BTR:left 4.82, right 4.83. OSR:28/35. Third/fourth round. (A-30 7/8, H-8 5/8, VJ-34, SS-4.50).
