Draft Profile: Bio

Jabbar Muhammad, originally from DeSoto, Texas, played high school football under coach Claude Mathis at DeSoto High School. As a junior, he recorded 32 tackles, five interceptions, and 18 pass breakups, earning first-team all-district honors. In his senior year, he contributed 34 tackles and one interception. Muhammad was a three-star recruit according to ESPN and 247Sports and also competed as a sprinter in track and field.

Muhammad began his college career at Oklahoma State, where he played four seasons. In 2022, he earned honorable mention All-Big 12 honors with 48 tackles, nine pass breakups, and one interception. He transferred to Washington in 2023, where he started all 15 games and earned second-team All-Pac-12 honors. That season, he recorded 46 tackles, five tackles for loss, two sacks, three interceptions, and 19 passes defended.

After a strong season at Washington, Muhammad transferred to Oregon for his final college year. He cited the opportunity to play under a defensive-minded head coach as a key factor in his decision.

Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Strong zone coverage skills, capable of taking away designated areas and preventing big runs.
  • Versatile defender, capable of playing both inside and outside positions effectively.
  • Effective open-field tackler, using proper technique to prevent ball carriers from advancing.
  • Instinctive player with good lateral movement and the ability to break up plays in front of him.
  • Quick feet and fluid hips, allowing him to mirror receivers and cover ground effectively.
  • Technically sound in man-to-man coverage, utilizing good technique and patience.
  • Excellent ball skills, tracking the ball well and forcing turnovers.
  • Exceptional fluidity and quick movements, allowing for effective response time and playmaking in coverage.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Lacks physicality and can be hesitant as a run defender.
  • Struggles with tackling in space, leading to missed tackles.
  • Susceptible to double moves and occasionally peeks into the backfield.
  • Concerns about handling bigger receivers due to smaller frame and arm length.
  • Adequate speed but lacks elite burst and acceleration.
Scouting Report: Summary

Jabbar Muhammad shows a lot of promise as a versatile cornerback with solid technique and impressive ball skills. His ability to excel in both man and zone coverage makes him an intriguing prospect. However, his smaller frame and issues with tackling consistency might limit his effectiveness against bigger, more physical NFL receivers. Muhammad's knack for staying in phase and disrupting passes will serve him well at the next level.

Despite his tackling concerns, Muhammad's fluid hips and quick feet allow him to mirror receivers and break on the ball effectively. He can play inside or outside, but his best fit might be in the slot, where his agility and coverage skills can shine. If he can clean up his tackling and avoid biting on double moves, he has the potential to become a reliable starter.

In the NFL, Muhammad's performance will largely depend on his ability to adjust to the physicality of the pro game. With proper coaching, he can overcome his weaknesses and leverage his strengths to make an impact. While he may start as a depth piece or special teams contributor, his upside as a coverage specialist gives him a solid chance to carve out a significant role in an NFL secondary.

The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
