2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JAELON DARDEN: North Texas, 5075 175 4.46. Three-year starter, Houston, TX. Earned first-team All-Conference honors in both 2019 and 2020. Also a first-team All America and the Conference USA Most Valuable Player in 2020, a season in which he finished second in the country in touchdowns (19) and yards per game (132.2), behind only Heisman Trophy winner DeVonta Smith. An electric playmaker who shows elite quickness, agility, and anticipation with the ball in his hands. He can create something out of nothing, fits into creases that others cannot even find, and plays with a big-time competitive streak. His size will limit him to specific roles at the next level, but there is no denying how dangerous he can be. Will add a spark to any offense. Shifty and elusive. Can control his body with the ball in his hands. Moves at full speed and instantly turns in any direction whenever he wants. Has stop and go quickness. Accelerates to his top speed in a hurry and will create separation on all levels of the route tree. A hungry and aggressive player who won’t play soft despite his lack of size and power. Catches the ball away from his body and shows excellent coordination from head to toe. Competitive and feisty. Gets tossed around by physical defensive backs. Has obvious limitations stemming from his small catch and reach radius. Doesn’t go up and compete for the ball in a crowd. 2020 stats: 74-1190, 16.1 ypr, 19 TD. Fourth/fifth round. (A-30 5/8, H-8 3/4, VJ-35.5, SS-4.10).
