Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about DONOVAN PEOPLES-JONES: Michigan, 6015 212 4.48. Junior entry, three-year starter, Detroit, MI. Earned third-team All Big 10 honors in 2018 as both a receiver and punt returner. The former 5-star recruit was also an accomplished high school sprinter with a near 4.0 grade point average. Never quite lived up to the hype after a promising freshman All- America season in 2017. The inconsistent quarterback play combined with a lingering lower body injury that hampered him in the first half of 2019 left a lot of unknowns for him. However his athletic ability combined with top shelf length and hand size in addition to an impressive Combine leaves him on the positive side of that wonder. This is a receiver with number one receiver potential that needs to clean up some of his route running, but already has other traits that will help a team right away. Long-limbs that are slippery and loose. Has a bendy, flexible body that is functional and used as a strength for the receiver position. Explosive straight line athlete with plus-playing strength, balance, and toughness. A weapon after the catch that will run through contact. Has runaway speed once he reaches the open field. Smart, patient route runner over the middle that will find the vacant areas of the defense. A very quarterback-friendly receiver. Needs more urgency off the line as an upfield route runner. Can get caught up at the line by a physical, long press corner. Doesn’t always show the top gear to get over the top. Production has been inconsistent at Michigan. 2019 stats: 34-438, 12.9 ypr, 6 TD, 24-173 PR, 7.2 avg. OSR:4/51. Third/fourth round. (A-33 1/2, H-10 1/8, VJ-44.5, SS-DNP).
