University of Florida Gators
#3 LB Jelani Jenkins
-Lines up all over the field, even single man coverage in the slot.
-Meets the RB in the hole and stops the RB from a free TD, play started inside the 5 yard line.
-Attempted to tackle the RB at the goal line, is a bit off balance and is not square. Allows RB to score the TD.
-Stays true to lane on attempt to run to backside that leads to TFL by another Gator.
-Shows his football acumen breaking down the draw in a 3rd and long situation.
Overall Analysis: Very good athlete who can cover a lot of ground sideline to sideline. Has exemplary lateral agility. Can cover and can make plays moving forward. Needs to impove his tackling technique.
#2 DE Dominque Easly
-Lined up at DE, got a sack due to a miscommunication by the Seminole offensive line.
-Makes an easy tackle at the LOS while lined up in the 3 tech position. C/G angle to their right and he slides inside the slide and makes play.
-Lines up over the guard and gets over powered on a block down by the center who engages on a slide block. Great athlete yet gets engulfed inside.
-Shows great leverage and push off the snap, blows the guard at least two yards. What is his true position in the NFL?
-Injured on a play at the goal line.
-Left game due to injury
Overall Breakdown: Easly is a very talented versatile D-Linemen. Shows raw power but inconsistent off the snap. I am curious to see how he develops this upcoming year. Does he play in a 40 front or a 30 front?
#52 LB Jonathan Bostic
-Lines up at MLB, made his way through traffic and sniffed out the runner, made a bone crushing tackle.
-In a 3rd an long situation he dropped back in to his zone, not the smoothest moving backwards.
-Makes a bonehead move hitting an offensive linemen after the play is blown dead, flagged for personal foul.
-Shows surprising fluidity in pass coverage.
-Ability to manage himself through the traffic of a developing screen pass
Overall Analysis: An underrated athlete, Bostic can play MLB at the next level. A sure tackler most of the time. Won’t be more than a 3rd round pick though. Similar to Williams of the ‘Noles he does not thing to flashy yet rarely see glaring mistakes on film.
#73 OT Xavier Nixon
-Does not play, must be inactive due to injury. Has shown some injury problems in his career. Projects as a mid round tackle prospect.
