Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about JEFF OKUDAH: Ohio State, 6011 205 4.46. Junior entry, two-year starter, Grand Prairie, TX. First-team All-Big 10 in 2019. Was outstanding as a sub package player before becoming a full-time starter in 2019. Physical corner with length. Has experience in a variety of coverage and technique. Plays press, off, and hard corner. Effective with a two and off hand jam along with press and react. Strong in press and bail. Mirrors cuts extremely well from different looks. Quick in transition with sudden foot movements changing directions. Recovers and closes with a burst. Solid ball skills getting his inside hand on balls at the catch point. Can undercut a route in the throwing lane to high point the ball. Stays in phase on vertical and extended route breaks. Has eye discipline to focus on the receiver and find the ball in phase. Solid zone defender with quick lateral shuffle in deep outside coverage. Maintains close cushion and has the ability to see multiple routes and react to the quarterback delivery. Can sink under an intermediate route as a hard corner and quickly break on the flat. Explosive plant and drive. Physical in run support. Can take on a stalk block and shed working to the ball. Runs through tackles with gather and finish. Occasionally will give up leverage versus a shifty receiver. Could be more fluid in pedal and reactions in off coverage. At time relies too much on recovery speed versus route breaks. Occasionally goes low on tackles and is vulnerable to a miss or yards after contact. Has the size, speed, and athletic ability of an elite corner. Any deficiency in his game can be cleaned up by an NFL coach. He still has upside and will be selected in the first round. 2019 stats: 35 T, 1 TFL, 9 PBU, 2 FF, 3 INT. OSR:4/29. First round. (A-32 5/8, H-8 1/2, VJ-41, SS-DNP).
