JERRAUD POWERS: Auburn, 5091 188 4.52. Junior entry. Two-year starter. A scrappy press cover two corner with quick feet and change of direction. Physical type player that doesn’t shy away from contact. Willing to force and contain. Can play off blocks and make the tackles. Will wrap up. Active in coverage. Good technician that knows his limitations. Shorter than ideal. Will compete for a nickel specialist job because of coverage ability. Quick feet and change of direction. Will also compete on special teams. Misses cut tackles at times because he’s overly aggressive on run support. Strong enough to jam a receiver at the line and funnel him into the safeties. Hips are a little tight in his turns. Made 110 tackles, 12 passes broken up, and 6 interceptions the past two years. BTR:left 4.69, right 4.69. OSR:18/32. Fourth/fifth round. (A-31, H-9 1/4, VJ-36.5, SS-4.10).
