Scouting Notes


Jabrill Peppers

Jabrill Peppers

Peppers shows Better-Than-Normal speed for the strong safety/defensive back position. He plays with an exceptional burst which is evident on punt returns and when he is blitzing and pursuing quarterbacks. Did not get to see on tape if he has perfect body control in coverage. He seemed to be playing zone coverage in a majority of his snaps covering the slot, so you don’t get to see how his hips are on the turn from the trail technique. He did however show the ability to pick up the tight end from the line and stick to him verses Iowa (1:05). Peppers shows the ability to play with the toughness required of a strong safety, but not as a linebacker. He purses with aggressiveness and is a willing tackler. You will catch him on tape watching the pile as opposed to jumping in, but not to often. He showed on tape (read more…)


Not impressive

Not impressive

Tough to see anything that says more than practice squad in this game. Doesn’t feel blocks. Doesn’t shed blocks. Runs well but that’s about it


This Guy loves to block

This Guy loves to block

This kid positively races up field to block people. Absolutely great to see. Would be good to see him with a QB who doesn’t underthrow him. Loved his effort to score that touchdown.

Hunter Henry

Very good blocker, makes receiving look effortless, good downfield blocker, very consistent, very solid athlete, finds the open spot well, can play anywhere, great body control. Would like to see more quick passes to him, appears to lean too much in his routes, needs to get his head around quicker on deeper routes, not overly powerful.


Keanu Neal

Keanu Neal

Waits around too much, can hit but seems to prefer not to, always seems to be the last one to the ball, takes himself out of the play too often, didn’t see anything from him in coverage; box safety.


TJ Green

TJ Green

Needs to recognize plays quicker, always knows where the ball is but not where it’s going, needs better awareness, good tackler for his size. He’d be a lot better if he focused on the pass as much as he does with the run.

Has the most important trait I look for in a DB: swagger.


KJ Dillon

KJ Dillon

Struggles reading plays and adjusting quickly, needs to take better angles, doesn’t seem real fluid, stays flat-footed too much, sheds blocks fairly well. He would be best as a high cover safety. Playing next to Karl Joseph probably makes him look worse than he actually is.


Karl Joseph

Karl Joseph

Loves contact, flys around the field, destroys blockers, excellent closing speed, quick decision maker, adjusts quickly, ball hawk. Good body control but comes in a little too hot sometimes. Gets a little too cocky sometimes and stays flat-footed too long. Can do it all; no glaring weaknesses.
