Cornerback

Jeffrey Okuda

College – Ohio St.

Height – 6feet 1inches

Weight – 200lbs

Position – Cornerback

Pros

  • fluid hips
  • stays in hip pocket
  • click/close
  • footwork
  • route recognition
  • stays balanced in/out of breaks
  • physical in run support
  • long arms
  • closing burst
  • ball skills

Cons

  • doesn’t utilize jam (scheme?)
  • questionable long speed
  • gets grabby

Overall

Okuda is the next in a long line of excellent cornerbacks from Ohio St. He is a smart player that utilizes fluid movement skills and reactionary instincts. He isn’t afraid to hit in the run game. He does tend to get a little grabby but has improved in that area. Currently being viewed as the best corner in the draft and a sure fire 1st round pick.

Comp – Tre’Davious White
