G John Jerry Scouting Report

G John Jerry, Mississippi
Pos. Rank: 8 Grade: 5th Round Height: 6-5 1/2 Weight: 328 40: 5.16 Year: 4-Sr.

The Good: Large, small-area blocker best in confined quarters. Stays square, possesses a wide body, and opponents struggle to get around him. Blocks with a wide base, bends his knees, and easily controls defenders at the point of attack. Pushes defenders off the ball and works blocks until the whistle blows. Lacks flexibility, agility, and struggles to finish blocks. Does too much leaning on defenders or over-extending. Cannot slide out off the edge and possesses poor footwork.

The Bad: Lacks flexibility, agility, and struggles to finish blocks. Does too much leaning on defenders or over-extending. Cannot slide out off the edge and possesses poor footwork.

The Verdict: Jerry is a powerful offensive lineman whose size and style are best suited to play in a small area. Could eventually develop into a starting guard if he improves and blocks more consistently with sound mechanics.
