Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JALEN REEVES-MAYBIN: Tennessee, 6003 230 4.70. Two-year starter from Clarksville, TN. Only played four games in 2016 after suffering a shoulder injury. Started 30 of 41 games in his career. Led the Volunteers in tackles both 2014 and 2015. Undersized but speedy, crafty, and agile defender who fits in well with what offenses are trying to do in this era of football. Lacks the power and presence to mix it up with blockers inside, but his range in pursuit and ability to make the open field tackle are both traits coveted by NFL defenses. Reeves-Maybin has the quick twitch and easy flexibility in his lower body to miss tacklers in space and bring down ball carriers on the move. Has the necessary speed to stick with receivers in coverage and will chase down ball carriers from behind. His production and consistent performance fit in well with teams looking for the weak side. 2016 stats: 20 T, 2 TFL. Edge speed:left 1.97, right DNP. Medical exclusion at Combine, left shoulder. Sixth/seventh round. (A-32 1/4, H-9 5/8, BP-DNP, SS-DNP).
