Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TYREE GILLESPIE: Missouri, 5117 207 4.43. Two-year starter, Ocala, FL. Plays with a high motor and has experience one high and dropping in the box. Solid athlete with quick change of direction and fluid hips. Tracks well moving downhill from a deep safety. Normally secure tackler getting leverage and sinking his hips driving through the tackle. Makes the plays in space coming downhill. Processes route combinations both in the flat and deep coverage. Gets good position on multiple routes in zone and reads the delivery key. Gets underneath intermediate routes in the flat and squeezes the throwing lane. Flashes match coverage ability against tight ends and slots in a short space. Questionable speed to  stay with vertical routes. At times a step slow in zone coverage getting over the top. Occasionally lunges at tackles and will miss at times. Inconsistent with cushion as an off man defender and as a one high safety. Will give up too much room or let a receiver get up on his toes. At times loses sight of receivers with too much focus on the quarterback. Making plays on the ball has not been a strength with only marginal production. Has been a solid special team contributor on kick coverage units. His best position might be as a hybrid/safety as an overhang player as his agility and zone cover skills play best there. His versatility will be attractive. 2020 stats: 46 T, .5 TFL, 4 PBU, 1 QBH. Fourth/fifth round. (A-31 1/4, H-9 5/8, VJ-35.5, SS-4.39).
