Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about JAMAL PETERS: Mississippi State, 6016 218 4.51. First year starter from Bassfield, MS. Tall, well-defined corner with imposing length. Was often used as a press and Cover 2 corner with experience in off coverage. At best as a hard corner using length to get under deep routes and up to the flat. Reroutes wide receivers and sinks to balance high/low routes. Difficult for a quarterback to get intermediate passes over him. In zone, reads quarterback’s delivery key and has a burst to react on the throw. Shows ability to jam and mirror in press man. Stays in phase with most receivers but even if separated his long arms aid recovery. His reach can close the gap. Flashes ball skills. Quick to get his head around to find the ball. Strong to take on blocks with shed ability. Can be explosive tackling, dropping receivers in their tracks. Some inconsistency as he can be slow to shed and does not always wrap on the hit. Inconsistent hands as he will bobble and drop interceptions. Turn and run tends to be labored creating separation. Will get beaten off the line in press giving up leverage. Some hip tightness shows versus double moves. Has been productive on coverage teams and that can help him make a team. Projects to a zone team that plays Cover 2. 2018 stats: 33 T, 1 TFL, 4 PBU. Medical exclusion at Combine, wrist injury. Sixth/ seventh round. (A-32 3/8, H-9 3/4, VJ-DNP, SS-DNP).
