Jalen Reeves-Maybin

Jalen Reeves Maybin the “Moneybacker” from Tennessee University

Outside / Inside Linebacker

6′ 230 lbs.

40 y:  4.72

Draft projection:  4th to 6th round

College Career totals:  4 yrs, 41 games. *missed 9 games due to injury his senior year

240 Tackles, 8 sacks, 27 TFL, 2 forced fumbles, 4 fumble recoveries, 4 pass deflections & 1 interception

Hometown: Clarksville, Tenn.

Pros:

  • Linebacker Safety Hybrid play style
  • Covers Tight end and Running backs well
  • Can play in the tackle box or drop into zone coverage

Cons:

Does not have typical NFL Linebacker size nor elite speed with a 4.7 forty.  Sometimes whiffs on tackles from poor angles and leaves his feet.   Occasionally struggles inside tackle box with interior blitz, gets swallowed up in pile.

Final Notes:  Jalen Reeves-Maybin is a man on a mission to prove he has what it takes to be an elite NFL player.  He had back to back 100+ tackle seasons in 2014-2015.  In 2016 he played 4 games and unfortunately had season ending shoulder surgery.  He is an instinctual player who has a nose for the run game and can close fast on the ball carrier. His hybrid ability will be his biggest asset going to the next level. If he can improve his tackling and polish his coverage skills, he will have a bright NFL future.
