Jaleel Johnson NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’3 316lbs
- Foot quickness
- Decent length
- High motor
- Solid hand usage
- Lateral movement
Analysis: Jaleel Johnson has good foot quickness and a plus motor. Accelerates into blockers with forceful punch at point of attack. Maximizes his length. Uses one-arm jab and long-arm push to disengage from blockers and generate a bull rush. Loose hips and flexible upper body are play-making tools. Plays with good energy and gives you what he’s got. Won’t catch him leaning on blocks for a rest. Hands and feet are in constant concert to improve positioning and defeat run or pass blocks. Change-of-direction talent creates difficulties for plodding guards. Had one of his finest games in upset over third-ranked Michigan.
- Upright out of stance
- Narrow base
- Struggles against down blocks
- Slower play recognition
Analysis: Jaleel Johnson is too upright at the point of attack. His narrow base and elevated pad level create issues for him against double teams. Might not have the anchor necessary to operate inside a two-gap scheme. Contact balance is below average. Unable to consistently fight back against a quality down block. Is a little soft around the middle and lacking thickness through arms. Limited number of tackles for loss. Can be a little slow to recognize the play develop before him.
