Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Eager to come downhill as a tackler and plays with a physical edge, and he’s effective as a blitzer.
  • Has an NFL frame with strong hands, the ability to close quickly on underneath routes and the size to tackle with a thump.
  • He’s tall-framed with long arms to match. With his powerful hands, straight-line speed, and fluidity in his hips, turning and chasing downfield shouldn’t be a problem.
  • Can deliver the big hit and isn't afraid to jump inside to slow the ball.
  • Closes to the ball quite well and possesses the hands to snatch throws away from his frame.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • While Hellams has man coverage skills, he can struggle when sitting back in zone. He’s not instinctive and struggles reading downfield routes and tracking the deep ball.
  • Gets sloppy with his backpedal when playing off-man and seems to lack the instincts to close on the ball.
  • Tends to play conservatively and give too much cushion when playing off.
  • He’ll draw plenty of flags early on with his playing style. Hellams is hesitant when facing the action in zone coverage.
