Ourlads' Profile:

2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DUKE DAWSON: Florida, 5105 197 4.50. Two-year starter from Cross City, FL. Nickel corner prospect who shows physical play and zone awareness. First-team All-SEC pick and led the team with four interceptions. Plays the short zones well reacting to multiple routes and getting in the throwing lane. Occasionally matches up outside as a press corner. Has a good closing burst reacting on the throw. Shows some tightness in the hips as he will struggle to redirect at times. Occasionally gives up leverage as he can be slow to flip his hips reacting to a double move versus a slot. Will waste a step at times but he has good recovery speed and can stay in phase on deep vertical routes. At his best in zone coverage. Has the speed to stay in phase deep. Plays with a high motor and is physical with receivers off the line. Does a good job taking on a block with good use of hands to separate and shed. Will miss an occasional tackle in space but has good fundamental tackling skills. Projects as a hybrid that maybe a backup/special teams’ player that sees the field in sub packages. Senior Bowl notes: Was physical in press and taking on stalk blocks during the week. Jams receiver well at the line but gives up leverage at times. Mirrors receiver’s cuts well. Experienced at cutting off routes in man coverage. Breaks on the ball quickly in zone coverage. Long speed is a question mark. 2017 stats: 34 T, 2 TFL, 9 PBU, 4 INT (1 TD). BTR:left 5.20, right 5.46. OSR:15/41. Third/fourth round. (A-31 1/2, H-9, VJ-DNP, SS-DNP).
