Jordan Leggett NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’5 258lbs
- Soft hands
- Play rises during big games (clutch)
Analysis: Jordan Leggett has outstanding size for the position. Has experience playing in-line, from slot, and as a wingback. Former high school receiver with natural, confident hands to snatch throws out in front of him. Just two drops over final two college seasons. Desired foot quickness in tight quarters. Seam-buster in Clemson’s offense. Shows some ability to turn out edge linebackers when he puts his mind to it. Rises to the occasion, with big games against Florida State in 2015 and 2016 and another against Alabama in National Championship. Saw his yards-per-touch increase to 17.1 in 2016.
- Marginal catch radius
- Needs to sustain blocks better
- More defined route running
- Scouts question effort level
Analysis: I’m sure scouts appreciate but dislike this honesty…Jordan Leggett has referred to himself as lazy in the past. Passion and urgency seem to be tied to a switch he flips for the big games. Lacks natural flexibility as an athlete. Shows stiffness in his routes. Catch radius is marginal. Fights his body to adjust to throws behind him and high. Loose with football after the catch. Aggressiveness and desire to block are questioned by scouts. Lacks instincts and block-sustaining as a move blocker. Accepts the brunt of the force at the point of attack. Is a little plodding coming off the line of scrimmage and into his routes.
