Johnathan Abram Scouting Report

Johnathan Abram scouting report
(Matt Bush-USA TODAY Sports)

Strengths:

  • Prototypical size
  • Hard-hitter
  • Great straight-line speed
  • Can match tight ends down the field
  • Communicator and leader of the defense
  • Solid in transitions
  • LB with safety speed

Weaknesses:

  • Won’t be asked for deep coverage
  • Playing style brings in durability questions
  • Want to see more anticipation in coverage
  • Lacked ball production in college

Analysis: Abram is a lethal striker who can immediately come in as a rookie and be the leader of a defense. He instills a fire in his teammates and has shown to be the signal caller and lead communicator of his defenses in college. He has great straight-line speed and can match most tight ends in coverage at the next level. He had only one elite season of production after transferring to Mississippi State (although he played well and often at Georgia and CC) Abram started 13 games in 2018, leading the Bulldogs with 99 tackles, nine for loss, three sacks, two interceptions, five pass breakups and a forced fumble. He isn’t the best cover safety in this class, but he provides a team with a run stuffing safety that should be adequate in the passing game.
