Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JERMAR JEFFERSON: Oregon State, 5101 208 4.60. Junior entry, three-year starter, Harbor City, CA. Pac 12 Freshman of the Year in 2018 and first-team All-Pac 12 in 2020. Has the ideal running style and ability for a zone blocking scheme that likes to get the ball outside. He is explosive from a standstill and shows a violent cut and burst up the field once he finds his lane. Can turn that explosion into power, inflicting strong contact on the defender. There are issues with his impact in the passing game from receiving and blocking perspectives. He has the upside to make things happen in the running game. Slasher with a loose lower half, explosive cutting ability, and an NFL body. Has an aggressive demeanor with the ball that will get to his points in a hurry. Aggressive and tough. Won’t go down without a fight and can get through lazy tackle attempts routinely. Can see through the first level while diagnosing the angles of linebackers. Needs more patience, doesn’t show natural timing and decision making. Struggles to create a lot on his own. Wasn’t thrown to much and lacks smooth, easy catching mechanics. Doesn’t maintain strong contact or positioning as a blocker. 2020 stats: 858 yds, 6.5 ypc, 7 TD, 9 rec, 67 yds, 7.4 ypr. Seventh round/ PFA. (A-30 1/2, H-9 5/8, BP-13, SS-4.39).
