Ourlads' Profile:

2013 Guide: What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about MATT ELAM: Florida, 5097 208 4.47. Junior entry. Two-year starter. A playmaker who made big plays in big games. Instinctive with the ability to read quickly and diagnose the play. Good anticipation with quick reactions. Aggressive on the ball in the air. Brings the hammer when schemed to blitz the quarterback. Physical in his play. Ability to stay on his feet and play off blockers. Competitive wrap up tackler. Experienced in both halves and single high safety coverage. A safety with important corner skills. Shorter than ideal. Will struggle in match-ups with tall speed receivers. NFL DNA - brother Abram is a 7 year veteran currently with Kansas City. Has some off field red flags. A probable first year starter who will contribute on all special teams’ coverage. 2012 stats: 76 T, 5 PBU, 4 INT, 1 FF. BTR:left 4.56, right 4.75. OSR:13/ 21. Medical exclusion at Combine - no shuttle, left groin. Second round. (A-32 5/8, H-9, VJ-35.5, SS-DNP).
