Brad Jefferson Scouting Report
Brad Jefferson
Brad Jefferson - Georgia Tech (HT: 6-2 - WT: 244)
Combine 40: N/A - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 13 of 25

Positives: Above average production each of the last two years, recorded 78 tackles and four sacks in 2010... Good size and bulk, appears to have a very solid frame... Has marginal speed for the position (mid-4.6-40)... Has experience in several systems, played in a 4-3 defense first three years and a 3-4 in 2010... Plays very low off the snap, does not come up out of stance often, stays low and uses leverage to wade through traffic behind the line... Does a good job recognizing plays, knows responsibilities and is effective in zone coverage... Has some pop at contact, is not afraid to take on blockers and make a big hit... No character issues to speak of, has the ability to be a good leader at the next level.

Negatives: Will over-pursue and fail to break down against shiftier runners, needs to work on change-of-direction ability... Has dealt with some injury issues, including a dislocated wrist that sidelined him for several games in 2008... Does not have much ability to avoid and disengage from blocks by linemen, engages a little high and does not utilize hands to get off blocks... Can be fooled by hard counts, take a lot of false steps before the snap in anticipation of the snap, may be a liability at the line of scrimmage when blitzing... Could have a higher motor, appears somewhat lethargic when away from the ball... Will come in too high when making tackles, not the best wrap-up tackler... Is not an every-down linebacker, will come off the field in third-down situations because of lack of man coverage and pass-rushing skills.

(December 23, -- Miami junior CB Brandon Harris, who is considered to be a late first or early second round prospect, is being quoted by the Miami Herald as saying that he is '85 percent' certain of skipping the upcoming draft and returning to school next fall. Harris has petitioned the special NFL draft advisory committee for a report on his status, but says that "even if I do get the first round I'm not saying I would completely jump ship, it would be the only reason to really make me consider it."
