Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about GRANT STUARD: Houston, 5114 230 4.60. Two year starter, Conroe, TX. A short compact player with a nonstop motor. Solid inside run fits he explodes downhill and consistently locates the ball. Can outrun blockers to find open windows. Has made several plays in the backfield as a result. Aggressive attacking blocks with a quick punch and shed on the move. Doesn’t stay blocked and still gets in on plays even if knocked off the ball. Above average agility in a short space he normally reacts quickly to cutbacks. Has range in pursuit and launches into tackles on the perimeter. Normally tackles with knee bend and finish. Can create pressure on the blitz. As a zone defender is quick in his drop and can run the seam with an inside receiver. Flashes suddenness breaking on short underneath and perimeter throws. Limits yards after contact. Sound man technique he mirrors cuts on back releases and has the speed to stay with wheel routes. While he is physical attacking blocks his stature inhibits him against climbing blockers and guards coming through on power runs. He can get covered up and driven back. At times lack of length has him wrapping tackles by a shoe string against a powerful ball carrier. Some hip tightness shows when reacting laterally. That and short strides can make him a little late on outside runs. Will under run at times. Has not been much of a playmaker in pass coverage as it is mostly tackling after the catch. As a blitzer can get too easily stalemated or knocked off his path if confronted. Has been a terror on kick coverage units and that may be his ticket onto an NFL roster. His ceiling might be as a backup/situational player. 2020 stats: 61 T, 5 TFL, 1 sack, 1 QBH, 1 FR (1 TD). Seventh round/PFA. (A-29 1/2, H-9 3/8, BP-NA, SS-NA, VJ-NA).
