Draft Profile: Bio
Jay Shaw attended Centennial High School and was rated a 3-star prospect by 247 Sports with a scout's rating of 0.820, going unranked by ESPN. Following high school, Shaw opted to join UCLA.

As a sophomore in 2019 he played in 12 games and logged 521 snaps for the Bruins. He made 29 tackles, 2 assists, and had 8 stops. In coverage he totaled 2 pass breakups, one interception, and QB rating when targetted of 92.5.

In 2020 as a junior Shaw played in 7 games and contributed on 426 snaps. He chalked up 23 tackles, 3 assists, and added 10 stops. In the secondary Shaw forced 2 pass breakups, 2 interceptions, and gave up QB rating when targetted of 73.9.

He logged 31 tackles, 5 assists, and made 8 stops. In coverage Shaw had 6 pass breakups, one interception, and surrendered a QB rating when targetted of 87.0.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • A very quick and very confident cover corner plays bigger than his listed size when lined up in press coverage, delivering quick, surprisingly powerful punches and using his natural quickness and change-of-direction ability to mirror on underneath routes.
  • Flashes good ball skills. Shaw has the fluidity and change-of-direction ability to mirror quicker receivers underneath.
  • Tracks the ball well downfield and shows good ball skills, including the ability to go up and high-point it in contested-catch situations.
  • Shows the click-and-close ability to backpedal and the ball skills to make plays. Shaw has loose hips to go along with good top-end speed, and Shaw can flip around to turn and run in coverage.
  • Has a nice blend of length, speed, and quickness. He’s at his best mirroring routes underneath, showing fluid movement skills and the ability to change directions on a dime.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Susceptible to double moves, though that could be coached out of him. But the problem is that Shaw doesn’t track the ball downfield, and he seems to lack the ball skills to break up plays.
  • Gave up far too many big plays in college, especially concerning since he has recovery speed to make up for missteps.
  • Shaw runs well, but he doesn’t have elite recovery speed.
  • He’ll draw plenty of flags early on with his playing style. Shaw is hesitant when facing the action in zone coverage.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. 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.
