Jalil Brown Scouting Report
Jalil Brown
Jalil Brown - Colorado (HT: 6-1 - WT: 205)
Combine 40: N/A - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 19 of 30

Positives: Very good size for the position, has above-average height and adequate bulk... Is very physical, good at taking on blocks and is strong enough to drive blockers back into the ball carrier... Does a good job of keeping a hand free when being blocked, sneakily shifty and deceptively powerful against larger blockers... Is a good wrap-up tackler, not a big hitter, but does a good job of breaking down and dragging ball carriers to the turf... Has the height to be a serious threat in jump-ball situations, has decent leaping ability... Does a good job sitting in man coverage and reading the quarterback's eyes, makes a good break on the ball... Interceptions totals have increased over the last three seasons (one in 2008, two in 2009 and three in 2010)... Appears to have good speed when making the effort, can chase down ball carriers from across the field.

Negatives: Doesn't seem to play with a consistently high motor, not a guy who always flies around the field... Needs to do a better job of breaking down and forming up in the open field, has the tendency to drop his helmet and lunge a bit... Does not have overwhelming ball skills, has made a few impressive interceptions, but does not have the greatest hands in most situations... Looks a little stiff in the hips, body control is not the greatest... Change-of-direction skills are sub-par... Well make mistakes and get beat deep... Instincts are just average at best, tends to gamble too often and jump routes leaving a man wide open.
