Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about LAVISKA SHENAULT JR: Colorado, 6005 227 4.58. Junior entry, two-year starter, DeSoto, TX. A first-team All Pac 12 in 2018, second-team in 2019. The do-it-all weapon for Colorado lined up all over the offense and produced from multiple spots. At his size, he can certainly pose as a backfield threat in certain packages. Getting him the ball via the handoff and/or screen game will put pressure on the defense because of his ability to break tackles and gain yards after contact. As an outside receiver, he will have a hard time getting open. Is very raw as a route runner and his speed won’t put anyone on their heels. He is a physical gimmick player with some additional upside if he can refine his skill set quite a bit. Tall, thick, and strong receiver who has a running back’s mentality with the ball in his hands. A hungry and powerful runner with excellent contact balance. Can absorb big hits, shake them off, and continue to move north. A weapon in space with his quick vision and reaction combined with his power and running ability. Gets moving north quickly after catching the ball. An effective blocker that will make a difference down the field to create big plays for his teammates. A try-hard competitor who wants the ball when it matters most. Versatile threat that lined up, and produced from all over the offense. Struggles to avoid contact off the line against man coverage. Gets caught up, throwing off the timing of the play. Lacks the wiggle and quickness to shake cornerbacks. Separation will be a struggle for him. Doesn’t track the ball well downfield. Will lose track of his feet and allow too many passes that reach his hands to end up on the ground. 2019 stats: 56-764, 13.6 ypr, 4 TD, 161 yds rushing, 2 TD. OSR:32/51. Second/third round. (A-31 7/8, H-9, VJ-DNP, SS-DNP).
